Bridge

I unfortunately am one of those homeless people who live under that bridge. I mean no harm to anyone especially the people who reside there on Kedzie and on sawyer. I would like to tell anyone who is interested that we do not want to be there anymore that you want us there. We mean no harm and we try to respect the community and all the people who pass through on a daily basis. Don't be scared of us....

I unfortunately am one of those homeless people who live under that bridge. I mean no harm to anyone especially the people who reside there on Kedzie and on sawyer. I would like to tell anyone who is interested that we do not want to be there anymore that you want us there. We mean no harm and we try to respect the community and all the people who pass through on a daily basis. Don't be scared of us. Try to keep an open mind. Notice that when you do pass through that we try very hard to keep it as clean as we can, we usually don't speak unless spoken to, and we never ask for anything. Some of deal with mental illness others have drug and alcohol problems but there are some of us who are very down on our luck with no family or place to go. If anyone would just reach out and ask they would know that we are harmless and we are just as afraid as you are remember we are there all night. We are alone we are treated as if we are not human and sometimes invisible as if this is what we really want sometimes people think the answer is as simple as getting a job which is a real challenge when you cannot keep your hygiene up, get proper rest and have no way to get back and forth imagine how frightening it is to go out all day and look for a job come back and find that the little bit you own has been discarded by the city. For just a minute put yourself in our shoes and maybe do for us what you would want someone to do for you if you were in our position. It absolutely is not as easy as it sounds.

  • Goldie's Place at 5705 N Lincoln is also another wonderful organization that provides services to the homeless, including dental and employment services.

  • Teri, you probably know about this, but come have Thanksgiving dinner with us. Thursday 1pm to 4pm at 4939 W Montrose. At St John's in the school gym. It is between Cicero and Milwaukee.

Graffiti- should I be worried?

Our block (2500 palmer) is relatively quiet from what I can tell. Found this beauty on my garage today, already submitted report for removal and intend on working on removing it myself later today. Long message, anyone know what it means or should I be extra worried? Anyone know of recent activity in the area?
Thanks!

  • Elise Doody-Jones Logan Square Resident

    Always report graffiti to 311.com . If it is obscene in nature or you are near a school make sure to report that as it will move the removal of this higher on the priority list. Taking a picture that you can send to 311 is helpful.

    We have been in the neighborhood a little over 20 years and I would say this behavior comes in waves. I do recommend having a can of paint or graffiti remover yourself as it is best just to cover/remove these tags as quickly as you can. The taggers will get bored of your garage more quickly then and will choose a different target. Talk to your neighbors and work together to communicate about any tagging or suspicious activity.

    As far as worrying...I wouldn't lose any sleep over this as it is random and nothing against you personally.

did you live in my old apartment?

2455 n. spaulding ave
apt 1

i ordered some business cards and they're en route to this, my old, address. hoping to intercept them from the new mailbox owners in the event i can't get the post office to just leave it a local branch for me to pick up.

thanks. i know it's a long shot!

  • you could try sliding a note inside the mailbox or posting outside of it explaining the situation and how to contact you when they arrive. I've experienced this more than once after moving, having packages accidentally delivered to the old address and have always been lucky to have kind people who held them & returned them to me. could also contact your old landlord. good luck!

  • SLA

    If it's any consolation, I've not only done this many times, but lately when ordering things I've combined my old and new addresses to send items to a place I've never even seen let alone lived in

    Items usually get sent back to sender then I have to pay shipping again and wait longer. Sigh. Good luck! There really should be a simpler way? But then again the carriers make money off of foolishness :)

Lost dog near Altgeld and California named "Louie"

Around 6.30am when I was out walking my dog a neighbor was calling for his dog, Louie (Louis?).

He seemed distraught, and in not shire if he's posted here yet. He described Louie as a brown / tan, very large pit bull. He lives in the apartments on he corner of Altgeld and California above Mops Beauty. I didn't get a name or apartment number.

If anyone has seen Louie, feel free to message me and I'll try to find the owner.

Keep a lookout for Louie, it's cold out there!

  • If you find the owner, tell him to post flyers all over the area right away-it can be very effective. Thanks for helping out.

  • I live nearby on Logan and will keep my eye out. Please let us know if he finds him.

  • Jen

    I'll be on the lookout . Please tell him to check animal control every day if he can. They do a stray tour a few times a day

Homebrewers?

I've been thinking it would be nice to find some like minded home-brewers and beer fans in the Logan Square/Bucktown area (or anywhere nearby). I've never been part of a brewing "club", but I'd like to find a way to get together with some fellow brewers in a semi-regular, informal way at local bars. We could compare notes, techniques, and of course beers in a non-intimidating way - I'm a casual homebrewer who's only been at it a few years....

Sometimes the crime listed is not readily understood from the description. The link below is to the Illinois State Police Uniform Crime Reporting Offense Codes. You can get the crime from the EB Daily Digest, then refer to the Codes for the applicable IL statute, then just Google the statute number found under ILCS Reference.

Need HVAC

Greetings fellow neighbors-

Need of your expertise/advise on this matter. My furnace's circulating water pump is making a loud noise when starting and the noise continues while operational. Can anyone recommend a solution and/or reasonable HVAC technician?

Thank you, all.

  • @Morgan-- Love radiators. We kept ours, too, and did SpacePak for air conditioning. It is expensive, but there is no way that we wanted to switch to forced air. Rough estimate is ~$12,000 for a 1600 sf floor.

  • i am an hvac tech in chicago 25 years exp. the noise from your pump if it is a series 100 B&G is from the spring coupler between the motor and impeller housing. it is a reasonable repair. u can reach me at 773 988 2093 if u need assitance

Need to rent or borrow a table

Hi there - I'm hosting t-giving for more people than I have table space for. I think I'll need one more table, ideally a folding, adjustable-height table that is as close to 6' long and 3' wide (seems most folding ones are no wider than 30"). Anybody know of a place to rent one table from? I could probably buy one for the same cost but don't have anywhere to store it afterward.

  • linda's flower shop on armitage at milwaukee rents folding tables and chairs for cheap

  • Loulu Me

    FYI Card and Party Warehouse (Belmont just west of Pulaski) rents chairs and tables, and has lots of other great stuff for sale. When they had just a couple of the bags I wanted for shower favors and I needed far more, they ordered them right up for me no problem. Shopping local, not corporate is something to think about for your future needs this store meets.

  • Ouch, I guess I have to eat my own words. Being misled is not cool.

    NFT, I still stand by that if it's just a neighbor looking for a sublet it's not a solicitation. I think the rules are for landlords trying to rent out their own apartments.

  • NFT LS landlord and resident

    i don't see much of a distinction, it's still an ad regardless of who posts it. how can you tell if the person posting is a tenant or a landlord? if you make exceptions that are easy to get around, you're left with no rule at all.

Car vandalism

Keep your eyes on the streets. My car was vandalized while I was away on vacation. 2 passenger side wheels taken and the car put up on cinder blocks
Altgeld at Richmond. Nothing taken or other damage to the car that I know of.

  • It's so hard to get over the helpless and violated feeling when someone steals a part off your car. It's such an expensive thing to fix and most people have no choice but to use street parking and leave their car vulnerable. Myself included. I had my catalytic converter stolen at Belden and Kedzie just a month ago. Some people really suck.

It's a longshot, but looking for my iPhone

It's in red case with my driver's license and cash card (suspended). really need the drivers license cause i can't get my clarion d without it…lost saturday morning somewhere between the chase on milwaukee east of california and the pierogi place (Polak Eatery) on california (driving, but who knows, i could have put it on top of my car). it's locked but "offline" so can't track it. $100 buck reward (that buys a lot of pierogis) and no questions asked.

  • the problem with the 3G now and even the 4 is that they cannot handle the new iphone software, so I've heard, which of course is just another way that apple inadvertently forces customers to get the newest model when they don't need it otherwise. correct me if I'm wrong, Lanny

  • Lanny Grilly Own Logan Square Studio (performances & recording)

    The 3Gs was a huge upgrade from the 3g & it runs the very stable i06. Apple made this phone for 3 years, and it still is considered the best phone Apple made. It doesn't have all the bells & whistles that the newer iphones have, but it is still the most stable & sturdy of them all.
