Police Foot Patrols Coming To Devon

Police foot patrols are the oldest form of neighborhood crime deterrence and it is scheduled to begin again soon on Devon Ave. This style of policing has been on the decline, but since gas prices have steadily increased over the years, Chicago’s finest have been slowly bringing them back along with additional bicycle patrols. It’s not all to ward […]

  • NYCtoRP NewToRP

    Come north....

  • Joe Moore Alderman, 49th Ward

    We have foot patrol officers on Morse on the weekdays during both days and evenings. I've asked Commander Waldera to explore the possibility of extending foot patrols to the weekends, as well.

Yesterday’s Storms Brought Havoc To Edgewater, See The Pics

Monday was officially the hottest day of the year with The National Weather Service saying that the heat index rose above 100 degrees in some areas. That heat fired up some nasty storms that engulfed the edgewater neighborhood. Around 12:30 p.m. the dark skies let loose with a large amount of rain and heavy winds. […]

    Just responding to a comment about who's responsibility it is to care for trees. I Had To Say It may be a troll or maybe not. Just sayin'.

  • Sarahdonis 20 year neighbor

    Okay everyone, you may or may not have noticed that this thread was initiated about the storm. I sat on my 10th floor balcony and watched 2 heavy stone planters get blown over and smashed. I watched what appeared to be a chaise lounge cushion 'fly' from the direction of Sheridan, 20+ feet over Lane Park to the Lake. There were trees pulled up by the roots on Balmoral. The trees would have had to have been pruned to the trunk, in order to have survived that storm unscathed.

Lost ring

I was walking home down Winthrop the evening of 8/21. I fell on uneven sidewalk. I didn't think my ring came off, but after searching high and low for over a week, I decided to give up and see if anyone might have found a diamond and white gold engagement ring. I will be happy to pay a significant reward. Thanks so much!

  • ERussell Edgewater resident and dog owner

    I walk my dogs several times per day in the area. I will keep my eyes open. I hope you find it.

  • Malibu Pat Edgewater Dog person

    Thanks, I really appreciate it! !

Trading Strawberry Plants

My June-bearing strawberry plants have overgrown my organic garden plot in Edgewater. Would anyone like to trade? I could use various garden supplies and seeds/seedlings. I also have mint plants I don't need. I believe that both strawberry and mint plants are perennials.

Thanks!

Facebook group for Edgewater families! moms, dads, kids

I thought it would be nice to get to know neighbors via facebook and to share things like baby items for sale, or anything child/family related. Playgroups, classes, nanny search, nanny share, questions about kids etc. All ages are welcomed, just love building a tighter "smaller" community. Here is the name of the group Edgewater, Andersonville, (and nearby) Chicago babies, kids, moms and dads

  • Now

    If you live east of Broadway, north of Devon, or west of Clark, you're going to be discouraged from joining Ruth's List. But if you live in Edgewater Glen, Andersonville or even Ravenswood please sign up. They are very welcoming to those who are very much like themselves.

  • Now

    Oh one other group Ruth's List welcomes almost unconditionally, the NCA crowd. All others need not apply.

Looking to rent a parking space

I'm looking to rent a parking space somewhere near the 1500 block of Rosemont Ave. Please let me know if you know of anything.

  • Nan

    If you post notices, you may want to create an email address just for that purpose. I wouldn't list your regular email address, and definitely not your phone number. Too many crazies out there......

  • I saw two signs today on Catalpa about parking available for rent. One on a building on the southside of the street east of Clark. #773-275-6070
    The other on highrise building on Catalpa just east of Broadway on the northside of the street just before the CTA tracks.

Hardwood floor refinishing

Can anyone recommend a hardwood floor company?

    We just used Modern Quality Flooring. 773 381 1087. They transformed 100-year old floors that had been basically trashed into something essentially new ones (this included some patching and repairing at points.

    Cornell Flooring. Many of my clients have used them and they were all very happy. Cornell is not cheap; probably middle of the road in price. But you can expect high quality work.

    Katie,they eat small pets only when very hungry. There are lots of their natural prey available so your cat has probably not been a casualty. I pray you get your 'little monster' back safe and sound.

  • d3 NOH

    they're supposedly coywolves. I saw one standing in Calvary cemetery about 3 weeks ago, in the morning. They try to avoid people and hide as much as possible it seems.

    I kinda wish something could eat some squirrels around here

Thank the City

While out yesterday after the storms I noticed a swarm of City vehicles and personnel working to clean up and cut down the massive trees that fell. Up and down Balmoral seemed the area most hit. I saw the Commissioner of Streets & Sanitation out there and Alderman Osterman as well. Both were very low key, surveying the damage and getting additional support out quickly to assist. Compliments due when deserved.

  • Don

    Yes they did a great job, BUT alderman O'Connor has been asked to trim the trees along Ravenswood on the train track side for years and now that we had a big storm one of those branches damaged my home. I will reiterate it may be time to look these people and see if they are a affective and elect new alderman who will reasond

  • Julia Z-N Andersonville Dog Mama

    I was also impressed with the response of the city to the storm. Bravo,guys! Nice job.

Hello Everyblockers,

My name is Alexis and I have lived in Little Italy for a little less than a year. Recently the building was sold and I was given a 30 day notice to vacate. I am currently homeless, bouncing around from couch to couch, but was able to send my daughter to Mississippi where she is staying with some family while I find us a new home.

I have applied EVERYWHERE. I have spent an obscene amount of money on apartment applications and am continually denied. I have extremely low credit, I left the military honorably last year after four years of service and my husband immediately left me. Due to the divorce and loss of income we experienced a very hard year.

I now work fulltime selling insurance in Evanston and have a good steady income but my past continues to haunt me. I am in need of housing ASAP. I am looking to spend no more than $900.00 a month in rent and need a dog friendly apartment.

I am also open to the option of living with a second single mother.

I am also working with a veterans organization called Volunteers of America who have agreed to pay first month's rent (up to $1000) and the security deposit (up to 3x's the rent).

The situation is dire. Where I am staying now does not allow dogs and I had to give her up temporarily to a couple who can also no longer watch her. I need a home now.

I am trying to stick to anywhere near the purple/red line as I have to get rid of my car and work out of Evanston.

If you can help in anyway please let me know.
