New Store at old Bucktown Beanery

Anyone know what, if anything, is going in at that location at Damen/Webster? Looks likes work is going on.

  • AMG

    I believe it's the new Red Eye space. When I was in for my appt in December, my doc mentioned they were moving there.

  • Tankboy It wasn't me.

    Yup, Red Eye, the optical peeps. No pins intended.

  • Just to clarify.
    The presentation to the Wicker P&D was strictly informational.
    They presented pretty much what you have already seen in the media.
    They were a last minute addition to an already full agenda.
    A large portion of our agenda was already dedicated to chewing out a developer on another project and we barely had time to ask questions ourselves.

    When anything progresses, we will let you know.

  • Here's the tactic of the developer in a nutshell. The land is zoned low density where the building currently cannot be built above a certain level. S/he submits a design that is way beyond tolerable density. Their real goal? Somewhere in the middle and higher if they get it. I...

    Here's the tactic of the developer in a nutshell. The land is zoned low density where the building currently cannot be built above a certain level. S/he submits a design that is way beyond tolerable density. Their real goal? Somewhere in the middle and higher if they get it. I don't mind the project, I mind the size and future density. That area on Milwaukee was once a void between Damen and Western. Too much too soon would make it a horribly dense extension of Milwaukee that currently exists southeast of Damen & North. They also are proposing this in winter so the thought of summer traffic horrors are away from your mind.

Chimney Sweep / Inspection Service

Can anyone recommend a service for a chimney sweep / inspection? We have a wood burning fireplace that we would love to use, but want to make sure it's safe.
Also does anyone know what the ballpark cost is for a cleaning/inspection?

Thanks in advance!

Wabansia Creeper

I just wanted to remind everyone to beware of your surroundings when walking at night. This past Saturday I was walking home around 1am. There were people out and about so I didn't feel unsafe until a guy did something that really freaked me out.....
He was walking east on Wabansia and I watched him cross the street so he could walk on the south sidewalk. I can only assume he saw me turn onto the northside sidewalk of Wabansia...

I just wanted to remind everyone to beware of your surroundings when walking at night. This past Saturday I was walking home around 1am. There were people out and about so I didn't feel unsafe until a guy did something that really freaked me out.....
He was walking east on Wabansia and I watched him cross the street so he could walk on the south sidewalk. I can only assume he saw me turn onto the northside sidewalk of Wabansia because after a few feet he crossed the street again so he was walking right in front of me. I walked behind him for about 2 blocks when he turned the corner and I kept walking straight. When I looked back just to check my surroundings I saw him following me. Needless to say it made me very uncomfortable so I kept an eye on him. I don't know if all the turning around made me slow down or if he sped up because the gap between kept getting smaller. I eventually made the decision to stop and wait for him to pass. As he walked by me I noticed that he was watching porn on his phone and pleasuring himself while he walked. He ended up turning north onto Paulina and I rushed home as quickly as possible to call the police. I don't know if they ever found him but it's a definite reminder to always be aware of your surroundings.

  • Whoa! You are so dead on. I am a long time WP resident and I wouldn't think twice about walking home down damen alone. Your account makes us all aware that we need to be aware ! Any time of any day! Thank you for the reminder! Stay safe out there!

  • Last night I couldn't stop thinking about that 25 yr old girl who got assaulted in Bucktown. I realize now how bad my run-in with the Creeper could have been. Like I mentioned in a previous post, I'm pretty sure the Creeper wasn't the same guy that assaulted this girl....

    Last night I couldn't stop thinking about that 25 yr old girl who got assaulted in Bucktown. I realize now how bad my run-in with the Creeper could have been. Like I mentioned in a previous post, I'm pretty sure the Creeper wasn't the same guy that assaulted this girl. However, I decided to call the police yesterday to make a formal report (since I didn't leave my personal information on Saturday). It might not lead to anything but at least I tried to prevent this guy from getting any bolder.....

    Alicia is right, be aware of your surroundings at all times, regardless of the time of day. This guy looked so normal that I wouldn't have given him a second glance if it was 7pm.

Lost Dog- $500 Reward

Hello Neighbors!

On my walk to the el this morning, a man handed me a flyer, as he is trying to find his lost dog. I told him to post on Everyblock but I don't think he quite understood me as his English didn't seem that strong. Anyways, see the pic for the dog named Paul, along with the owner's contact information.

  • Jen

    Poor Paul! If you have a chance post it on Lost Pets- IL on Facebook. I'll try to remember to do it tomorrow too
