Where can I sell my bike.

Hi there. I was wondering if anyone knew of any used bikes stores or any other places they would recommend trying to sell a used bike. I have it listed in Craigslist, but unfortunately I feel like CL has a bad rep with bikes and people may steer away from looking there. Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Thanks everyone. It's a schwinn 26" women's mountain bike nothing fancy but it still works great. I have it listed for $100 but I'm willing to negotiate. For everyone who wanted more info ill message you the CL like. I don't want to spam every block by trying to sell stuff on here :)

  • Beth Ryan Chicago Native and Real Estate Broker in Chicago

    I am looking to buy a tandem bike for adults does anyone know of anyone that has one and I will also go on the facebook page too.

Gunshots at Milwaukee & Central Park this morning?

Did anyone else here gun shots at around 2:45 am? Woke my wife and I up and heard about 3 shots really close and then several more that sounded as if they were traveling. Anyone have any info?

  • Chicago60606 - gang activity in the area has been going on for decades. It's much safer now than it used to be, but hearing gunshots is a very regular/normal occurrence in Logan Square.

Six corners Bistro??

Past by a few times this week and all dark. Hope it has not closed up already.

    Kathleen: You just hit my sweet spot. We're missing all the Jewish delis that we used to have in Albany Park, Edgewater, Rogers Park. I still go to Manny's when I can, but someone's missing a bet by not opening a few more comfort food delis. Chopped liver, cabbage soup, whitefish, where have you gone?

  • Kathleen Boyle Your dog's best friend! (Taking real estate break)

    There is still one great deli I know of, at 5501 N. Clark Street. They have so many signs all over the outside of place, I'm not sure what the real name of it is, but two of the names on it are Gordona's & JB's Deli. Melt in your mouth corned beef, amazing soups, salads to die for, and even still has an old-school pharmacy inside! Authentic as they come!

Small Home Daycare

I will be moving to the neighborhood of Irving Park & Elston Ave. next month and would like to continue my home daycare which I have done so for the past 12 years in the Roscoe Village area. I have excellent references and will be looking to care for one or two children full-time. Our daily activities include music, play & story time and long daily walks. I provide healthy, well balanced meals in a loving and nurturing environment. I charge reasonable rates and would love the opportunity to care for your child. Please email me at bgrmcd@comcast.net for more information.

  • Hi DMSfit - Thanks so much for the intrest. My move-in date has been delayed a few more weeks until November 10th. Please email me at bgrmcd@comcast.net if you'd like more information.

3452 W. Irving Park Ave. - Chicago Coffee House

This has had a sign for "Coming Soon" for quite a while now. Anyone have details on the place? Is the owner on Everyblock? I've been excited for a local, non Dunkin/McDonald's coffee shop in the area as I consider this area a coffee desert unless you go far west to Portage or South to Logan Square.

Looks like the building sold at the end of October 2013 but the coffee house has been "Coming Soon" for about 7 months.

  • Irving Dave Friendly neighbor

    Saw that Emme but still nothing in their window to indicate anything... And no web presence (which in this day and age I think you need before opening).

  • Noticed their Yelp page has a grand opening date of October 31st... along with a couple of pictures inside. The address is listed as being in Franklin Park, which is obviously a mistake. Maybe the new owners aren't particularly digital-savvy?

    Looks nice inside... keeping my hopes up.

Need reliable and affordable snow removal service recommendations please!

I'd greatly appreciate any referrals for snow removal service for an 8 unit condo building in Old Irving Park please! I know its early, perhaps, but just found out our former vendor closed shop :( Thanks for your time!

  • Jen, you should ask someone VERY close that already has someone come out. I think you know they charge per visit. We shovel ourselves but don't care about anything other than the mailman breaking his neck. It's a small house and driveway. The peddlers want $40 just to come out,...

    Jen, you should ask someone VERY close that already has someone come out. I think you know they charge per visit. We shovel ourselves but don't care about anything other than the mailman breaking his neck. It's a small house and driveway. The peddlers want $40 just to come out, regardless of snowfall then $10 an inch! I shooed him away and kept shoveling. The church on the corner of Irving & Kostner has someone come out and shovel their entire lot. It's a big lot but since they're already here it might be worth asking the church who they have?

3 gunshots heard near Irving and St Louis around 8pm last night

Did anyone else hear the 3 shots in this area? I ran out side to see if I could see anything but could not see anything out of the ordinary. I called the fuzz to report it.

  • Chris hey Andy, are you goofin' on Elvis?

    Brian, my wife thought she heard them, but off in the distance, at that time last night. But we are north and west of that area. I didn't hear them.

    There has been a flair up of SGD and FS taunting SCR's graffiti in that immediate area in the last week. Just over 3 years ago, SGD's shot and filled an SCR and wounded another. With FS involved in a shooting a few months later. I'm guessing the flair up in graffiti is marking that anniversary, which is now following by the gunshots.

  • The Fuzz? Really?

2800 block of irving park

What's going on across from Burger King?

  • The Great 33rd Lifelong Northsider!

    I had been curious about that. I see a lot of riff raff there from time to time and was under the impression that is a hang out for older gang members.

  • loraine t washington 5 yr. resident

    I ain't the one. I pay too much taxes to deal with riff raff.

Proposed Schurz athletic field discussed at community meeting hosted by Ald. Arena

Residents express concern about the impact of closing section of Waveland Avenue for the proposed project; alderman to form steering committee

http://nadignewspapers.com/2014/10/13/ald-arena-will-form-committee-to-address-concerns-about-closing-waveland-for-schurz-athletic-field/

  • Careyann Old Irving resident

    2 weeks post-meeting with Alderman Arena, has anything happened other than the monthly OIPA meeting back on Oct 13th? Has the steering committe been formed? Is there any neighborhood group that has been formed to specifically object to the proposed project?

landscaper recommendation

We are gardeners ourselves and have fairly decent knowledge about what kinds of shrubs-trees-flowers work in our environment. We are looking for someone to built a layout or border for our front yard and part of back that we can fill in with what we like or already have growing. Also on a limited budget (of course.) Any tips or example of costs youve incurred? Thanks everyone!

Feral/Alley Cat Colony

Over the last few years our feral/alley cat population in the 3700 Block of Albany has gone sky high. It all started with a few houses that kept their non-spayed/neutered cats outside. I know of at least 20 cats that room the block.

The biggest issue is that they come into our yards and gardens and defecate everywhere and then we have to clean it up. I have an indoor cat, but outdoor cat feces can be harmful if touched....

Over the last few years our feral/alley cat population in the 3700 Block of Albany has gone sky high. It all started with a few houses that kept their non-spayed/neutered cats outside. I know of at least 20 cats that room the block.

The biggest issue is that they come into our yards and gardens and defecate everywhere and then we have to clean it up. I have an indoor cat, but outdoor cat feces can be harmful if touched.

And my neighbor can't get them out of his garage. He is now on his third momma kitty with a litter that has crawled through the side and camped out far under a utility bench. He feels bad of course and doesn't want to harm them so he just lives with is, but again cat poop everywhere.

It is hard to know if these are someone's pets or not. I heard that PAWS has a trap/spray and release program but what if these are really pets? I guess if they are and the owner let's them roam then it's fair game? I have noticed more alley cats on blocks on Troy and Whipple too. Anybody else having this issue?

  • Greg V. Cycling Dude

    Sorry, that should be LOTS of stray cats.

  • My street, the 3400 block of Keating, has no other feral cats wandering around. There used to be one or two, but I haven't seen them in ages. The rat population has exploded. I have been here 22 years, and back then I used to see 1 rat a year,...

    My street, the 3400 block of Keating, has no other feral cats wandering around. There used to be one or two, but I haven't seen them in ages. The rat population has exploded. I have been here 22 years, and back then I used to see 1 rat a year, if that. Lately, we had them running through our yard every day. I was afraid to work in my garden, and I was so afraid they would get in my house and garage. Ugh! I have had my 4 feral cats for only a few weeks, and I have not seen one rat in that time. It is like a miracle.

Yoga in Avondale?

Does it exist?

  • I remember seeing the Chicago Park District at Independence was actually having yoga classes.

  • Chris Z Old Irv Park resident

    I also endorse the Yoga Shop and agree with BrightnShiny. Parking is pretty abundant around the studio, and typically not more than a block away. Often you can park right in front, but do read the signage carefully for restrictions.

Cute puppy!

Hello everyone,

Two days ago a van pulled up next to Chief O'Neills and left a super cute brown puppy. She appears to be around 4 months pit bull mix, well fed and happy. Is anyone missing a cute little puppy?

  • Chances are the dog was either stolen (or just from a litter no one wanted). If you or someone else is keeping the dog in your home, post her as Found on Lost Dogs IL's Facebook page. She looks adorable!!

  • Yes, try posting on lost dogs Illinois. Cicero and the SW side has recently had quite a few dogs stolen. I'm not saying it doesn't happen all over Chicago- but for some reason last week I saw quite a few more posting than usual. Also, you should probably head to any reputable vet and get the dog scanned for a chip.

  • any such name live, walk, & cook in logan square

    Sounds like she was dumped. http://chicagopitstop.org/cpsrsite/ Chicago Pit Stop, http://peaceforpits.org/ Peace for Pits, and
    http://www.chicagolandbullybreedrescue.org/home0.aspx Chicagoland Bully Breed Rescue are a few rescues to start with if you can't/don't want to hang onto her.
