Event space needed

Hello all,
I am in need of rental space in the 7th Ward. I know about the G Spot and Quarry. I do not care for The Quarry's owner, she is very rude and the food is terrible. I will contact the G spot, but if anyone knows any other places, please let me know. I have tried to reach out to a couple of church's but no luck. I need this for around October 15-17 .

No Prostitutes?

Guess no one else sees them. Or is that in a separate crime section? We see them on Exchange in mid-day and always call them in. Their bookkeepers appear to be waiting for them at 76th and Coles.

  • Andy Ashlund citizen

    Yes, I will try to get the address -- east side of exchange between 77th and 76th. There is a lot of action there; shirtless guy with a huge belly always standing in the open door...that block is infamous all over the City and Northern Indiana. Commander Coffee knew about it, but he got transferred too soon to help us.

  • There is a CAPS meeting tomorrow at 7:00p.m. taking place at The Rainbow Beach Fieldhouse. Beat 421 covers the vicinity where this activity is taking place.

7827 So. Ridgeland Avenue Workers working at 5:00 am.

Today, September 5, 2014 we called 911 four times and we also contact Superintendent Garry McCarthy about no dispatch came out per our request. These workers have been outside working with saws. drills, hammering etc at 5:00 am. The city of Chicago work ordinance is 8:00 am. This is the reason this city is in the condition it is in.

Today, September 5, 2014 we called 911 four times and we also contact Superintendent Garry McCarthy about no dispatch came out per our request. These workers have been outside working with saws. drills, hammering etc at 5:00 am. The city of Chicago work ordinance is 8:00 am. This is the reason this city is in the condition it is in. The Chicago Police dept is a joke for this city. They do no come out when we call over east and people just come into the neighborhood and disrespect the area like we are nobody. I am report this to the inspector general and the news media. I have video with the time on it showing the event. We called the building inspector to come out and inspect back in April of this year, No Inspector has come out yet. I contacted Commissioner Felicia Davis on this issue, no response yet. Everybody wonder why this City is in the condition and screwed up as is, no city official and police dept are doing their job, they want to collect the check but do no want to do the work. This was reported to Alderman Michelle Harris over 5 times and like she always do nothing, nothing is what has occurred. Next Springfield and Civil lawsuit.

Email Sent to Alderwoman Harris Regarding Walgreen's Parking Lot & Deteriorating Sewage Drain on 71&

Dear Alderwoman Michelle,

I am concerned about the Walgreen's parking lot on 71st Jeffery. When there are heavy rains the lot is flooded and this has been going on for over a year. Also, the entrance driveway on 71st & Jeffery just off BABA's restaurant has damage to the sewage drain and is creating a deep hole around it.

Is there anything that can be done about it? I am sure Walgreen's is leasing from the property owner, but the crater around the sewage drain is on City of Chicago property.

Thank you,

Tammy James

  • Thank you Julilama, I have contacted the Alderman's office and they are looking into it. They will address the sink hole on the public street on 71st Jeffery and will call Walgreen's about fixing the sewer on the parking lot. However, the parking lot may remain flooded as you stated it is private property.

  • Jolyon renter/resident

    Good luck Tammy. Thanks for pushing on this one!

City Inspectors again - 3rd Call- No Building Permit- Workers still working 7827 S Ridgeland

This is the 3rd call put into 311 and the building permit department of workers unlicensed and no working permit at 7827 S. Ridgeland. They also are breaking up a concrete steps and porch without a dumpster whereas concrete dust is flying all over the place in my yard and in my neighbors yard, on the sidewalk. In the black neighborhood anyone can just come in and do whatever they want to do without license or permits. I have asked the media to come out on this issue and they have, thank you media. This is evidence for us to file a civil lawsuit on the owners. The pictures are attached.

    Normjohn the crew is not licensed because after getting their information, they are not registered and found out through the better business bureau that the courts canceled their contract from prior courts precedings. I also know about the permit by checking with the City of Chicago Building permit department whereas a uniform personnel, I have access to that kind of information.. Please understand, this is protection of my property not vengeance on the workers. These workers that the owner have brought have been stealing electricity by running a false line from either me and my neighbor and Commonwealth disconnected the line and issues a citation all because the owner hasnt paid the $5,000 electric bill on the building and prior workers in february was stealing gas by using their own pole to turn the gas on and was using a blowtorch trying to take the cap off the gas port on the parkway - I had fellow officers come out and they were arrested. The other crew unlicensed was doing some welding on the back of the building around the electric meter and started a fire in the back of building which contacted onto my deck, I did file insurance claim on them and won. So now you see my point. Its sad because these new ownership are coming into the neighbor and these new owners lives in Schaumburg and buying up renting not living in the neighborhood their tenants in which a majority not working, when you come home from work, they are up all night partying and keeping noise and sitting on the front smoking their marijuana, we are trying to have a safe, comfortable clean block and we must fight together or we lose it. These new owner is refusing to purchase permits, they have been shut down twice for not having them plus the fire they caused, just all sort of various mess.

  • In life sometimes one wonders why some people who aren't so deserving sort of breeze through life on ez street. And others who try very hard to do the right things in life are bopped upside the head for no reason. And for this I apologize for not really understanding. You have been "bopped" undervantly.
