Looking for daycare in Logan Square

Hello,
Can anybody recommend a daycare in Logan Square? Also, not sure how far ahead I need to be checking places out. Friends have said there can be long wait lists, etc. but I'm not sure if that is everywhere in the city.... Thanks for any info!

  • ch1cag0rob 10+ year Logan Square resident.

    We're about to take our 2nd child to the very good Les Petits Amis on N. Richond (about a block north of Diversey and 2 blocks east of Sacramento). We love the place, and it's priced very well for the neighborhood.

Did you see WBEZ's story on gentrification in Logan Square?

My colleague Chip Mitchell did an interesting story on how gentrification is affecting Logan Square. What'd you think of it? Did he miss anything?

    @Steven Vance is it even legal to make new 2-flats? For some reason I thought I read somewhere that it wasn't... I understand small unit condos are but new start multiunit residential homes I thought they weren't in Chicago?

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -
Police are investigating after they say a woman was attacked and robbed in the city's Logan Square neighborhood.

Police say the brutal attack happened early Wednesday morning in the 2700 block of North Whipple Street.

The woman was walking down the street just after 8 a.m. when she was reportedly grabbed from behind and dragged into a gangway, according to a release from the Chicago Police Department. The man reportedly beat the woman over the head with a gun and demanded money.

According to the release, when the victim told the assailant she did not have any money, he tried to sexually assault her.

The victim described the suspect as a Hispanic man in his mid to late 20's, standing about 5'5 to 5'7 and weighing 175 to 200 pounds. The man was described as having black hair and stubble on face. He was last seen wearing a black and white knit stocking cap, a blue button-front hooded jacket with grey sleeves, and blue jeans.

Anyone with information on the attack is asked to contact Are North Police officers at (312) 744-8200.

Another Package Theft

At 2pm today a package was stolen from my front porch near Armitage and Sawyer.
I was able to get a look at the theives from behind as they walked out of the alley and onto Armitage Ave near Kedzie, and two women witnessed the theft.

They are wearing all black, head to toe. One man was black and the second hispanic, both about 5'6- 5'8.

UPS claims they left the package with someone, but they clearly did not.
BE CAREFUL and have packages sent somewhere else, especially for the holiday season.

Let's Get our Video Cameras Connected to CPD District/Cental Command

Being the IT Dept and administrator to the cameras that protect our Condo association since 2009, I have seen firsthand the power this tool has to solve crime. We've been subpoenaed twice and have produced useful video evidence for another dozen or so incidents over the last 5 years that all have helped make this community stronger. High ranking CPD Chief McNaughton has already successfully launched a pilot program in his previous position in Lawndale and we're very close to the reality where hiding from the law is no longer an option.

  • PR

    I work in law enforcement. The police and prosecutors will use any and all video. The defense attorneys might make a stink about video being tampered with but that rarely sticks if ever. The cops have forensic people to verify that the video hasn't been tampered with in. Get whatever system you can afford. Even crappy video is better than nothing.

  • Gil Jimenez Private Investigator; IL concealed carry trainer

    Video cameras CAN be a valuable addition to one's security plan.

    Video cameras CAN be a valuable addition to one's security plan.

    But there is absolutely no point to connecting 10,000 20,000, 30,000 private security cameras to CPD. For CPD to respond based on one of the video feeds, personnel would have to SEE the ONE feed and recognize what was occurring. How can anyone monitor the thousands of streaming images in real time? It is just not possible.

    I know we are hoping for a rapid - near instantaneous - police response as a crime is occurring, but we have to be realistic.

    BUT what is possible is for private individuals and businesses to install good quality cams and a recording system that does not overwrite itself in less that 2-4 weeks. Once the person becomes aware that a crime has occurred, notify CPD that your video recording might be of assistance in the investigation.

    And then, make the recordings immediately available to detectives.

    BTW, to be of maximum value, the cams should NOT be mounted so high that the only image they record is the top of a suspect's head/hoodie. They need to record facial images, so experiment with cam placement. And cams need light, perhaps infrared.

    Talk to security cam experts. I have a colleague who specializes in security cam systems. (The newest ones let you see what's happening IRT on your smart phone.) Email me if you want his contact information. There is nothing in it for me other than to get you helpful information.

    PR is 100% correct about admissibility. Tampering allegations are just desperate squeaks from defense attorneys. Forensic examination can prove that no tampering occurred.

Morning, noon and night this dog barks and I think its been going on for over a year now. Honestly don't think or cant even fathom that I am the only one tired of this.

I have been doing research online and I thought there was a Barking Dog Noise Ordinance, or some sort of Dog Barking nuisance law for Cook County/Chicago but I can not locate it?
I don't want to call animal control, but fear that Its my only option - plus after my research, is recommended.
Calling 311 or 911 isn't going to solve the problem. Asking the owner nicely to control the dogs barking will be taken care of first, I just want to make sure if things keep going south, I have the correct recourse.

  • Good luck. I used to have Scotties and it isn't typical for them to bark all the time. They are alert dogs that like to keep watch, and mine would bark when they saw people, but certainly not constantly.

    There may be an underlying behavior or health issue here. Dogs with separation anxiety will bark constantly when left alone. Sometimes the owner's are not even aware of this issue until told by a neighbor.

    Another issue is senior dogs with dementia type issues can bark far too often. I have a 16 year old dog and in the last six months or so she has really increased her barking. She's having some doggie dementia type issues.

    Just wanted to mention a couple of these possibilities as may help the conversation w/ your neighbor.

Yet another package stolen

Hi all,

Just wanted to give a heads up, had a package stolen from my porch on the 3200 block of W. McLean Ave. FedEx tracking number states "left on porch" at 11:26 am. I got the mail at noon, nothing there.

We generally request packages to have signature on delivery, however this was a gift sent from my in-laws (actually the last package they shipped went missing as well). I work from home, doorbell never rang.

I filed a police report, had FedEx run a "trace", etc.

If you happen to see this fancy ottoman hanging out in a nearby alley give me a shout I guess!

  • FedEx will hold your packages at any of their locations without a fee. I usually have mine held at the Kinko's in Division and it's very easy to pick up as they are open late and on weekends. UPS is not nearly as flexible unfortunately

They are in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign to open their first interactive exhibit as early as Spring 2015: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/foodseum/chicagos-food-museum

The location has not been decided, but I immediately thought Logan Square would be the perfect location, with all the new restaurant activity, fantastic farmer's market, and plans for a future rare-fruit orchard.

After pledging my support, I emailed my thoughts to their executive director, Kyle Joseph, who personally wrote me back to thank me. He said that they are "big fans" of LS and they have been keeping an eye out there, and agreed that LS would be a great fit. He encouraged me to pass along the word in the neighborhood and said he would be happy to speak to fellow residents and supporters.

If you like this idea, please pass it along, donate to the campaign, and email the museum founders and organizers that you would love for Foodseum to come to Logan Square!

  • LD

    Agreed, I have nothing against the idea of the museum (I'd def visit out of curiosity), I just wouldn't invest in it as I am doubtful of its sustenance. Ditto for the juice bar (if the profit margins actually float the juice bar for a while, it will close as soon as the craze dies down, vitamixes get cheaper, or another, less expensive juice bar opens), although I think there's a big difference b/t restaurant/retail and hospitality/entertainment and not sure the 2 are comparable.

Anyway, they have a wonderful mission that these services should be available to everyone, so they work on a sliding scale.

This week-end there was a huge hawk 'posing' on the ground while someone not quite close took phone pictures. It appeared to be @ 2' tall and eventually flew up in a near by tree and posed some more. (I haven't seen any pigeons in that area lately either.)

As 'The Miss' and I went on our walk, we saw two pretty ladies walking arm-in-arm. I think they are sisters. One has a smile that could melt the snow; the other is a special needs adult who I do not believe can speak. I always say 'Hello' and the special needs lady released her companion's hand to give me a hug...a nice big hug.

Then she started to cry. Large tears. I said "Please don't be sad" and her companion said "Oh, she cries when she is happy." I said 'Well, then just keep hugging and I'm glad you are happy'.

If you see them in the park, please do say 'Hello' (Hugs are optional...)

  • I bet you saw a Coopers Hawk. One flew into our backyard a few years back so I did a little research to identify the species. It might have been 2 ft. but in a little Chicago backyard, it looked like a giant Condor.

  • I saw a hawk that fits the description in my yard a few days ago.

  • i have seen that hawk a few times… it really looks like massive compared to the other birds around there...and I am pretty sure I have seen what is left of the rabbits/pigeons it destroys… looks like a small explosion of feathers & fur in the middle of the field, with nothing else around…

    the hawk i saw had quite a bit of white on it, so the coopers hawk looks to be it
