Logan Square Trash Collection - Stalled because of snow/ice?

Is it just me or has it been a long time since trash has been collected.. Is this typical when there's this much snow/ice? .. I keep thinking "they'll get it this week", but our alley is quickly filling up with trash, some of which has been there for several weeks now..

  • Sighryn Roscoe resident

    I saw the Streets and Sands guys taking trash out of trash cans manually. That's a lot of work to have to go into every single bin and take out the trash bags one by one just because people can not get their butts out to the alley, dig out their bins and place them where the good men and women of Streets and Sans can empty your trash. Try taking initiative instead of complaining.

    Anyway, my trash gets picked up.

    Breathless rant over.

  • C. McGill Goethe Parent & Volunteer, LS resident since 2003

    I'm sure people would have been digging if the snow had actually been soft enough to dig but like I said before, it's pretty much like cement now. I'm not complaining, though. There was nowhere else to put that snow but in front of our bins. We knew what we were doing and that it might mean some of our trash and recycling wouldn't be picked up.

Safety around 3000 N Central Park Block, Between Barry Ave and Milwaukee

Hi Everyone, I'm considering moving to an apartment around 3000 block of N Central Ave, close to Milwaukee. I've been doing some research and it seems relatively okay but I'm concerned about the crime reports around Barry and Drake...

I have a dog so I would have to be outside at night when I take him out.
Is this an okay area at night?

  • Fuarain CTA rider, walker, animal person

    I walk over there at night often, have never had a problem. There was ONE murder there a year or two ago, but it was a bizarre situation, not just a crime of opportunity against a random person. Other than that it's usually pretty quiet. It's a good location in general - close to the train, Aldi, Walgreens, etc.

  • We like it. Been living at Milwaukee and Central Park for a year. Always quiet, some homeless people and ne'er do wells hanging around the Podhale but they tend to keep to themselves

Need attorney/help to purchase automotive business license

Hi, I been trying to work my way through the Chicago business licensing process for a motor vehicle related business in the Roscoe Village to Cragin area. I haven't had much luck. It now appears purchasing an existing business license may be the best route forward. I need an experienced attorney to facilitate this process.

Lost underweight male German Shepherd

My landlord has lost her male German Shepherd. The dog is very underweight and last seen on Wednesday night in the 3600 W Oakdale block. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  • Luci in Rogers Park Dog Lover, living in Rogers Park for 26 years

    Do you think some dog loving soul took him in and is just keeping him as their own?
    I can't imagine Deuce still wandering around the neighborhoods.. I really hope he is in someone's home being showered with lots of love, affection, and attention..

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

    After all of the stuff posted on here, I wouldn't be surprised if somebody just kept him, rather than return him to a neglectful home. Kelly, you are a very kind person to put in this kind if care and effort for somebody else's dog.

We're a really easy going couple, I'm from Spain and my wife is from Oklahoma so you won't find a friendlier pair! :D

Let me know if anyone is interested!

Lost keys

Hey neighbors! My roommate lost her keys (in the snow? In a puddle? Help!) somewhere between her car parked at Kimball and Milwaukee and the Logan theater. They are Honda keys with at least three other misc. house keys. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • Katie McD Logan Square Lady

    I picked up a set of keys on Monday in front of Cafe de Leche next to the Logan Theater. I brought them to the cafe counter and had them hold the set. It was a car key and some other keys but I think the car may have been a Mercury. Worth a shot, though. Good luck!

looking for an Apartment

Hi
I have a friend who is looking for an apartment for her and her daughter. She is trying to find a 2 bedroom for $800 I know sounds unrealistic but humor me anyway. Thanks:)

  • Jen Baron JBaron

    I advise you have them look in Old Irving Park. They may get lucky and find a good apartment close to that price. I'd advise they drive the area, specifically in the coordinates of Irving Park north to Montrose, and Pulaski west to Keeler. Keystone ave, Kedvale, and Keeler have a lot of apartment buildings and or older condos that put up for rent signs, as well as Cullom ave and Berteau. Good luck!

Development around Kedzie/Armitage?

Does anyone know what's happening in the building across from Scofflaw (MuveMusic building) on the NW corner of Kedzie and Armitage? My boyfriend received a hint from someone at Scofflaw that "something good" was coming, but no more details were offered. I also wondered if anyone had heard any plans about anything coming into the other vacant buildings on the north side of Armitage in that general area (for example, there are a few vacant storefronts between the cleaners and Walgreens, east of Kedzie)?

If i knew where she lived it would be on her door step. And even better if i was out with my dog I would have given her a bag. But I wasn't. People are disgusting.

Honda Fit Tires Stolen on Belden

Hello All, just a warning... I had ALL of my tires and rims stolen off of my Honda Fit early Sunday morning. It had to have happened after 1am. It happened near 2828 W Belden. I didn't have locking nuts but from what I have been reading it doesn't sound like they would have helped. Keep an eye on your cars folks! I cannot believe this happened 2 block away from the police department. They're doing a great job of patrolling the neighborhood... Not! I am super paranoid that this will happen again. Has this happened to anyone and were you targeted multiple times?

  • Living in the city it would be something to consider when buying a new car... My dad had a car that was known to be targeted for stealing radios. The third time his radio got stolen he gave up. I second the blinking light thing. It sounds silly but it seems to have stopped break ins on my car (one window and one catalytic converter)

  • Sorry that happened to you! The dealer warned me about this when I bought my Fit. The cars are easy targets because they're so light. I park in a garage, so I haven't bothered with the wheel locks yet, but I will probably get them the next time I bring my car in for maintenance.

Grab-A-Bite

Whatever it is, it's coming to the Western Blue Line. Obviously they have coffee and snacks of some variety. Other than that, all I can gather is that they have sandwiches. It's a London-based company and so far has very little web presence in the U.S. Their UK website really doesn't have much info, either.

I have so many convenience-food related questions!

  • Fuarain CTA rider, walker, animal person

    Grab-A-Bite is going INSIDE the Western station, in the thing where the little Dunkin Donuts used to be. No idea when it's opening or how/what the food is.

    As for rents - probably very high and wrapped in city red tape. Though when the guy who had the franchise for the Dunkin closed it to try and operate as an independent, he was selling those cellophane-wrapped pastries that were really not very appetizing, so I can understand what he didn't make enough to pay the rent.

  • My dream of a mini Bang Bang in that spot has come to an end. Found a bit more info here on the London company and CTA rental pricing: http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/7/71/148291/london-based-sandwich-shops-coming-to-4-cta-stations

    Admittedly, Mr. Opporknockity is a good piano tuner. One day he was called to tune the piano of a notoriously fussy client.

    “Please, Mr. Opporknockity, come and tune my piano,” the client pleaded. “You’re the only tuner in all Chicago who can tune it right.”

    Mr. Opporknockity had heard how difficult this client was to please, but he agreed to try.

    Well, he tuned her piano ever so carefully, and satisfied that it was prefect, went home. But the next day, just as he feared, the woman called. “I’m sorry,” she said, “but my piano simply isn’t tuned well yet. You’ll have to come back and try again.”

    Mr. Opporknockity sighed and said “I’m sorry too, ma’am, but I cannot return.”

    “Why not?” the woman huffed.

    “Because, don't you know? Opporknockity only tunes once!”

What do YOU pay for Comcast???

I've had it with Comcast, just like so many others... In less than a year, my internet fee went from $77 (which I thought was absurdly high!), to $83, to $95 this month!!! My co-worker told me yesterday she pays $30, and every time that "promotional" rate expires, she complains and they give it back to her... So, I'm thinking that's some pretty significant range! So, what do YOU pay??? I'm wonder just how wide this range is...
