1812 milwaukee

That old bordered up building looks rejuvenated with the new sets of doors and the boards off. Any news on if someone bought it?

  • Michael Bucktown Resident

    gerigirl, what are you talking about? Is there some subtext you could bring forth?

    The building looks quite nice now~ It's unfortunate that many building owners are content to allow their property to look like garbage until they see an opportunity to make some money...

  • gerigirl I live and breathe this city!

    Michael....I was referring to Ben Stevens and his reference to Polish doing great work, I have long admired the labor that went into creating so many of these older buildings and how they standout from present dwellings, if I went off track from original thread....sorry!

Wicker park park

Does anyone know were there 20 cop cars at wicker park's park around 10:30? I was walking outta work when i ran into that mess!

  • Bger East Village neighbor

    I think the police response shows just how much they feel they are under attack every day by the bad guys. And the response is meant to reassure all cops, and to show us, that harming a cop will have serious and immediate consequences. Not saying I agree but just my take on the response. I agree that it was overkill and that we need to rethink who is hired, how cops are trained and what needs to be enforced and what level of force is justified.

  • When Police show enforce it is only for one of their own. They are saying passive aggressively that we matter and you don't. That is all.

Odd activity at 2429 W Cortland?

I've noticed a lot of comings and goings at this address and money exchanged as people leave. There is also a girl sitting on the front porch--it may be different girls or the same one--at almost all hours. It feels sketchy, but I can't put my finger on it. Brothel? Drug den? Nothing to worry about? Any ideas are appreciated.

  • Please call Joe Morenos office and file a 311 on line complaint. There are a number of people from the block doing so.

  • Ap

    Kelly, I will file the online complaint. Do you know if we have a "text tree" for our block?

Mailbox?

I can't seem to find a new mailbox. Looking for one that mounts in my fence. Does anyone have any recommendations for online or local stores?

  • Our box from Lowe's is metal and locks - didn't need to weld either, we were able to secure via a bracket (that we unfortunately didn't get from Lowe's). I like the idea of having access from the back, but I don't know if it's want to cut up our fence for it and then be stuck with only that mailbox option until the end of time.

  • Why not consider a nice locking mailbox on a post like they use in the suburbs. We did that at our home on the west side; just inside our locked wrought iron fence and within easy reach for our mail person. Our mail person had no problems delivering our mail and smaller packages into our mail box. We were even able to have a beautiful clematis growing along side the post in the summer and draped it with an evergreen swag during the Christmas holidays

Late night license

I hear the owners of the new bar (owners of owl) are going to be seeking a 5am license. Any thoughts on crime levels and general "trouble" after owl opened up? I think once that goes in it could open up some more business on that desolate block. Thoughts?

Aldi Proposal

They changed the unit count down to 101 units and added more retail space and changed the footprint. This project is huge and can change that strip of milwaukee. Thoughts from anyone at the bucktown community meeting tonight?

  • Michael Bucktown Resident

    Another great comment, JeannyB: "if you rent a car for whatever reason you'll still need a parking spot."

  • The TOD ordinance wasn't passed because of CTA renovations, but because 35 percent of all trips in the City of Chicago are transit based. Buildings shouldn't be developed on the assumption that 100 percent of their uses will be exclusively car users, especially in those areas where transit options are highest.
