FOUND: Keys

Hi, I came across a set of 3 keys on the corner of Leavitt and Division. It looks like they may have been out in the elements for awhile. In any case, if they are yours, drop me a message.

Moving? Free Boxes and Packing Paper

I've just unpacked and have 8-12 boxes of various sizes and very much professional packing paper all clean and in good shape. Instead of landfilling all this valuable stuff, I'd love to donate this to someone who could use it all.

Contact me to come pick it up after 6PM or on the weekend some time!

Police activity on Rockwell and Bloomingdale

My neighbor just mentioned there were about 15 police cars and a fire truck on Rockwell and Bloomindale last night (Sunday). Anyone know what happened?

  • Curious about this report. Hopefully someone has some intel! I can't seem to find anything reflecting this in a news search (at least yet).

St. Hedwig Church Restoration photo

Took a shot from a good angle showing scaffolding on the restoration of St. Hedwig's west bell tower. That's a lot of scaffolding and it has survived some pretty high winds this season. The new roof looks nice. That scaffolding will all be gone by the end of summer.

Looking for sports to play

Are there any pick-up games that happen regularly? I would like to play sports as opposed to straight jogging as a way to stay active. Soccer, flag football, ultimate frisbee, softball... I guess basketball if that's all I can find, but don't say I didn't warn you (meaning I'm bad).

Alternatively, a more structured league would be okay as well, depending on the price. I know there is the sports complex off Western by the Target.

Thanks!

  • Michael Bucktown Resident

    You can very often find pick-up basketball at Wicker Park. Less frequently, a pick up soccer game at the same park...

  • Check out playerpong.com for teams who need subs - many rec leagues

  • robin in WRP Tired, very tired

    Most parks have weekend softball leagues

  • Oh well, the Bucktown boundary lines are blurred... goes for other 'hoods in the city too. The point of the video is: Bucktown rocks! Nice work, Steve. I'm sharing this with friends.

  • thedom Chicagoan

    Nice work Steve...good quality, would love to have seen more about the history and maybe some random people on the street.

    To nitpickers: Really? Neighborhood boundaries down to the side of the street? Please get a life.

Theft on Dickens and Damen

Just a heads up - My catalytic converter was stolen on 7/17 while parked in front of 2034 Dickens.

  • I had the same stolen at 2400 W. Cortland. Mechanic in the area told me he alone has had 3 cars come in this past week with stolen catalytic converters.

flurry of stolen catalytic converter!

Hiya, Last night my catalytic converter was hacked from the underbelly of our Honda CRV while on the street at Dickens and Leavitt. This morning at Dickens and Hoyne I spotted another victim with the same make and model year car...same metal shavings on the street and same void under the car. Just an FYI to anyone driving 2005ish CRV ! I've read this is common in Chi.

  • @RedVetteJen nice link to cat clamp...thanks. Also today went up the the muffler shop on Western and MacLean...they were finishing up a car that had the same theft, same night up on N. Campbell. That makes three that I know of in one night...Two on Dickens one on Campbell...others? Park it in your garage if you've got one!

  • Mel. B. Hopeless Romantic with a flair for Sci-Fi

    I just had my converter stolen from Damen and Dickens on the 17th. What did everyone pay to get theirs replaced? I'm curious to see if I over paid

Friday evening oddness

All right, something odd just happened. A kid in his early 20s opened our front gate, took a picture of the front door, then ran away so fast I didn't even see where he went to. The dogs barked at him before he left and I slammed the door. Anyone else have this experience? Any meaning to glean from it?

  • Something about the house number? Can only speculate without info on what your door looks like.

Any recommendations for a mechanic?

I live near the Western blue line stop and am looking for a reasonably priced, honest mechanic. Any recommendations are much appreciated!

  • Kathleen P Bucktown Lady

    We've used Nal's for years but they're so busy. When I called this week they said they couldn't take us until next Wednesday. So I called Bucktown Auto on North and Josh was awesome. Helped so much, was lower priced than expected and the car was fixed that day.

  • Santos at Division and Hoyne. Great work and super honest. We had engine work done somewhere else before we brought it to him because we still were having problems. He turned down $2500 worth of work because he said the other mechanic should have fixed it. Reasonably priced too.

Looking for 1 bedroom, dog friendly apt. for around $1000

I work in Bucktown and am looking for a 1 bedroom, dog friendly apt. I am a responsible pet owner (I keep him clean and pick up his poo) and my big boy is a mutt (mostly lab) and lazy.
I would like to stay at $1000 and need by mid-August. Hopefully an apartment with a nice size modern kitchen with some counter space. (I am a pastry chef and like to work on new desserts at home.) Please let me know if you have anything or know of someone that I can contact.

Thank you.
