UPDATE: Homeless Man by the river behind Riverside Square was removed by the City and CPD......

I noticed this as I was going to the gym this morning. It looks as if he was forced out by somebody or the City finally intervened. There was yellow Chicago Police tape up in the entry way to his camp. Hopefully the City found him a place to stay. He had 16 trash cans before at his camp..

Looking for a Rental in Bridgeport!

Hi all! We are looking for a condo-quality rental in Bridgeport, and I wanted to see if there were any landlords that may have vacancies at this time. We do, however, have a couple of dogs, both of which are senior and non-destructive. Ideally, we would like all the frills -- two bedroom, W/D in unit, dishwasher, central heat and AC. Our lease ends May 31st, but we would be willing to take possession as early as May 1st. Thank you for your consideration!

  • dversdzn Bridgeporter

    Jen, shoot an email to Kim Campbell (kc@forthgrp.com). She works for the management company that takes care of the building I live in (Union Lofts, 3500 S. Sangamon). I believe there may be a couple of units for rent in the building but Kim would know for sure.

    Good luck.

  • Jen

    Hey, thanks, dversdzn! I will totally reach out to her! And lofts sound swanky. ;-)

Storyclub Update

Well I attended this month's Storyclub Tuesday night. It was great, again. They actually ran out of chairs. Next month I"m bringing my own. The only drawback still, is the narrator who feels he needs to scream and swear at the audience in between performances. I don't know. Maybe he's nervous and doesn't know how to express himself... hmm..
Anyway, that aside, try to come to the next one. It's the event's 1 year anniversary celebration and the Northside Storyclub is coming to share/compete.

Oh and it's a BYOB, if your so inclined. But it's only an 1 1/2 hours long so it's definitely doable without. Either way is acceptable. Enjoy!

Blue arrow on trees

Does anyone know what this blue arrow means? I'm assuming a utilities of some sort. Any info? Thanks!

  • Jason Marshall Pilsen - Harrison Park resident

    I believe the arrows lead to the smurf village ;)

  • Kathy Long time Bridgeport resident

    maybe a dying or diseased tree or tree trimming by the electric company

  • Thanks for your inputs. It's been bugging me so I did some more research and tracked down a # to Streets & San Forestry Div. Man at the office said that blue paint usual means water main location. Makes sense!

How do you feel about the firefighters?

The media have been reporting on a new contract with the firefighters, and I am wondering how you feel about the ones in this city.

Personally, I doubt that we are getting our money's worth from these city employees. First, they work 24 hours on and 48 off -- who really believes that they are working 24 hours? All this schedule does is allow them to sleep on the city job, then go out and work another one since they...

The media have been reporting on a new contract with the firefighters, and I am wondering how you feel about the ones in this city.

Personally, I doubt that we are getting our money's worth from these city employees. First, they work 24 hours on and 48 off -- who really believes that they are working 24 hours? All this schedule does is allow them to sleep on the city job, then go out and work another one since they are so rested.

Second, why does the city not share data on the amounts, types, and outcomes of fire department calls? At least with the police, we can get an idea of what kind of reports are being made, but where can we go to find out what the CFD has accomplished? How many fires have you had in your neighborhood? I know of only 3 in the past 19 years, at least 2 of which were the residents' fault -- failure to clean out dryer lint, and putting things too close to space heater.

I would rather have the city put money into creating a video game that shows kids, teens and adults how to prevent a fire, what equipment to have in the building to deal with it, and what to do if one starts.

Perhaps some of you will be CFD boosters, and I welcome your stories. But before you laud them for their bravery, please think about all the news stories where the individual who saved someone in a fire was a family member, neighbor, passerby, or even the cops on patrol.

  • If you want to save money for the city cut the number of alderman we have way too many and most do way too little

    I'm no firefighter but I know some ... have visited several firehouses and I have been in firefights for over 24 hrs ... 24 hours with only brief periods to catch your breath ... and when you DO catch your breath its only smoke and death .... 24 hours with only water ... no food ... no sleep .... no nothing .... but fighting ..... its not easy and its not fun ... My feeling is that it takes every minute of 48 hrs to recuperate ... only to fight again .... 48 hrs is not a lot of time to recuperate after 24 hrs in a hellish inferno ... There ARE times when fireman can go to work without getting wet but YOU NEVER KNOW!
    I have over 40 yrs working with military personnel including 6 in recruiting field ... 1 (1986) as the top recruiter in Chicago ... I've enlisted people for 6 years (now 8 is the Military Service Obligation.
    Some never left the States and got a 4 year college degree in their spare time .... Some 'bit the bullet' in less than a year ..... When you apply for Police or Fire OR enlist in the Military ..... you JUST NEVER KNOW!
    POLICE and FIRE are WILLING to RUN IN when everyone else is RUNNING OUT!!

What is going to be built here?

Does anyone know what is going to be done at 3124(approx address) S Shields Ave. It seems like they are doing to tear down the factory/warehouse there...I don't even know who owns it now...Advance something or other....(is the name I think) Anyway I live on that block and am curious as to what is going on with all the excavators and bulldozers they are using there this week.

  • We own property down the street from this location & would welcome new homes w/open arms. The property has been an eyesore for a number of years & we could not get the owner to clean it up. It's better vacant than what was there.

  • i live directly across trom this site and they are definitely digging a huge whole and getting a foundation for something started. perhaps they will build homes like the ones on the opposite side of Stewart (ST/alley/whatever it is) If they build that then the people will all have their own garages and parking on Stewart street behind their residences also. So the parking should not be to problematic, except the property taxes will go up again.

What about a hotel instead of a heliport?

Jumping off the Balcer/heliport thread, what about using the site instead to put up a mid-level hotel, like a Choice or Marriott property? There is nowhere for folks from out of town to stay nearby that is decent and reasonable. If we have guests come into town they end up going downtown or out by Midway. Our apartment is too small to accomodate overnighters. The location is convenient to Bridgeport, Sox Park, IIT, Chinatown, Pilsen, Mercy Hospital, the loop, UIC and the West Side Medical Campus, with great public transportation available, especially if they keep the proposed water-taxi stop. Just wanted put the idea out there for consideration.

  • Ro Bridgeport tailor's granddaughter

    Isn't seeking investors for growth and business part of the Alderman's job? Shouldn't he find out if the people of the community want to have a mid-range hotel/motel here and then work to find a delveloper? If not at the Halsted site, how about where the Wrigley factory was? Is there anything definite about what is going to happen there? The project could include a water-taxi stop by 35th St. That would be great for Sox Games. If only I had the capital....

    Starbucks was offered the corner of 35th and Halsted before Oscar's took it. They wanted NOTHING to do with this area! Amen Ro.....The Wrigley area is NOTHING but bars. Yeah it is. Ask them if they are really truly busy in the off season? Do you want this area to be like Wrigleyville....All Bars? NOPE! We already have people urinating in the street already. Water Taxi? Only water close by is the River. How do you propose that? They still need a way to the park! Do yeah really want a notel MOTEL? Might attract the wrong element. In the past week we had 2 hooker busts already! How about what Halsted used to be? mom and pop shops. Decent shops not junk dollar store nonsense. A really nice place to sit and eat a good meal. Not so hard.

Clutch Replacement

The clutch on my 2007 Subaru Impreza just bit it. The quote from Firestone was 1300 and seems excessive. Anyone used anyone in the neighborhood for clutch replacement they can recommend? Approximate cost?
