Someone is kicking the front door at night

Is anyone else having this happen to them?

Twice this month someone has opened the front gate and violently kicked the front door of my home. I have been here, but by the time I reach the door they have fled.

Anyone have any ideas about what might be happening? When it first happened I thought it might be a teenager - but tonight when it happened it was so loud it made me believe it was an older person...

Any ideas greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    CC is a hassle in the city, too many places that you can't carry, and maybe that's not a bad thing. However, protecting yourself at home is another story. I used to have a FOID card many years ago. Thinking about going through the hoops to have a gun at home. Right now the dog, alarm, and high locked fence seems to be doing the trick. It would take effort to get to my front door, they'd have to jump the locked fence, then get through the heavy double locked screen door.

    Be careful of the pizza box scam, when we lived where we had a porch and accessible door late at night someone rang the bell, my husband had been napping and half out of it started to open the door, luckily I was right behind him and looked over his shoulder, there was some dude with a hoodie on (please no Zimmerman paranoia comments, this was before that) holding a pizza box, hand underneath. I reached over and slammed the door, as I did I yelled out I called 911. Of course I hadn't had a chance to, it was just a reaction. Firstly, we didn't order any pizza, and secondly no one wears a hoodie up on a hot summer night. Plus the body posture struck me as all wrong.

    In general, I never would open that door without looking first, but as I said my husband was out of it. I think we got very lucky that night.

Now where do we go besides Home Depot? Any suggestions for a hardware store (that is actually open when people need to go)?

Cats need a forever home!

We have been fostering two adorable black cats that we grabbed from CACC before they were scheduled to be euthanized. Both are male, both neutered and have a clean bill of health. Both are approximately 1-2 years old and very sweet, but still a little shy. Would be perfect in a home without cats as they love each other, but seem to fear other cats. If you want to adopt them, please contact me! These guys deserve a wonderful forever home!

Who is running against Balcer in the next election?

Does anyone know who is running against Alderman Balcer in the next election? We need someone with a plan to build and grow Bridgeport, Alderman Balcer has proven he is not the person to move our neighborhood forward. Back room deals for development at 35th and Parnell, lack of new business, the dollar store strip of Halsted St, empty store fronts and vacant lots everywhere...what has he done? We need new blood and leadership. Does anyone know who is running?

  • Io Octopus

    It is a good idea for Bridgeport to offer what people cannot get online, such as the bowling alley or skate rink suggestions.

    Or... vote Morty for Alderman.

    Morty is really busy with his modeling career right now. But he will be endorsing a candidate: Whomever promises him more trash cans on Halsted! :-)

Where did the patios go?

First I noticed Poncho Pistolas outdoor seating was gone (that was a week ago, so it maybe back and I did not notice) then last night I noticed that Zaytune's outdoor seating was gone. Is anyone aware of this? Or why?

If I had time this week I would just stop at both for lunch and investigation :)

  • jim m bridgeport resident 14 years

    zaytune's were there this a.m.

    As I mentioned above - I really do think that outdoor seating is good for the community. Outside presence, looking lively, all that. This is why the patios are important to me.

finding apt in Bridgeport

Hi everyone,

I'm interested in moving to Bridgeport. I live on the North Side now but find myself fairly often in Bridgeport/Pilsen. I moved to Chicago from LA last year and that area reminds me a lot of parts of LA.

I don't see many postings for Bridgeport apartments on Craigslist, and I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for good ways to locate vacancies. I chatted with someone who works at Pleasant House Bakery and he mentioned walking around the neighborhood looking for "For Rent" signs. Any other good strategies?

Thanks in advance!

The Water Meter is Installed! So Far, So Good

Thanks again for your earlier advice, everyone! The installation took about 45 minutes, and -- amazingly -- no leaks!

I've used about 125 gallons this week, which means I'm on track to use about 1000 gallons in two months if I don't have to water the lawn. (Keep on coming, thunderstorms, LOL)

Of course, you knew I had to videotape the whole thing ;)

    I volunteer at FreeGeek Chicago and second Erik H's recommendation. (Sorry for being so late to the conversation). Laptops start at $75 and with 24 hours of volunteering you get a $75 reward which can cover the cost of one in full. We have minimum standards for hardware that we sell so although not new computers, they all can play Youtube videos smoothly (with adequate internet connections), surf the web on Firefox, play DVDs, burn CDs (and some also can burn DVDs). We test them all and if they can not handle those tasks, we recycle them. Desktops start at $40 and we may soon be lowering the cost of our lowest priced desktops even further.

The Bridgeport Air & Water Show
Saturday, August 16, 5:30pm - 10:00pm

The Bridgeport Air & Water Show is one of the youngest and most unique air shows of its kind (All Kid Powered Activities). Recognized by both the Chicago Parks District & Friends of The Park – Chicago as “the kind of event we like to see neighborhoods promoting in city parks,” the Bridgeport Air & Water Show is destined to become one of Bridgeport’s most anticipated summer events. The citywide support for an event taking place right here in our neighborhood is inspiring to those of us who are working hard to keep Bridgeport safe and a great place to live.

Thriving public parks have an important role in the health and well-being of our community. That is why the Bridgeport Citizens Group is proud to announce that we have been asked to organize the 30 volunteer spots need for this year’s event.

Volunteer Opportunities Include:

10 – Water Volunteers: help teach kids to fish (catch & release)

5 – Air Volunteers: teach the art of getting a kite airborne

Missing Cat

William has been missing since the 4th of July. He lives with me on the 33rd place block of South Morgan street in Bridgeport.
He is a very friendly orange cat with soft hair and a wide vocabulary of meows and chirps. No collar.
If you find him I would be most grateful if you could give me a call: 215-470-6131.
Reward or cookies or artwork to the lovely person who will return him to me. He is the best cat I have ever met. I am heartbroken.
