Really that bad?

Good morning everyone! I read EveryBlock daily for Portage Park / Six corners. Lately I have been seeing more and more comments about the area going downhill. Is this the case?

It seems things are happening that are positive in the Six Corners area. New small businesses etc. (onviously with the exception of the bank hole). The neighborhoods still seems quiet and contain a very tight community feeling which is hard to find. What are your thoughts?, I am interested!

    City plays the race card to get things done and people arguing ,go walk at midnight down some of the side streets and wake up . It's not about race its bad elements and crime.The alderman should not have police protection for them or their families if it is safe like they assume it to be wont be a problem.

  • Sue Portage Park-er

    I did report the one on Long & Byron via the website, also the one north of it on the building east side of Long.

Sudden increase of bums, crack addicts, in general riffraff & playground danger

I have been walking in portage Park in the last couple weeks and just noticed the sudden uptick significant Lee of bombs, crack addicts, and generally downtrodden rituals sleeping at the park benches in front of businesses throughout the neighborhood.

I have been walking in portage Park in the last couple weeks and just noticed the sudden uptick significant Lee of bombs, crack addicts, and generally downtrodden rituals sleeping at the park benches in front of businesses throughout the neighborhood. Has this happened because of the increase in Texas? What's going on here ? Or neighborhood are used to be nice and clean for years ago when my wife and I moved. What to do Nallon seems like a neighborhood is going the way of Rogers Park Or uptown… Never hurts where we used to live and move because of that same reason. Also and I should probably start a new post for this one how come portage Park playground playground is so trashed? I've noticed it becoming increasingly damaged and no one seems to care park district isn't doing anything in terms of upkeep or maintenance the other day I was there with my daughter and they actually had police tape around the monkey bars it's actually dangerous for kids.

  • To contact the park director, I emailed the address on the Portage Park Website. I included my phone number in the email and he called the next day.

  • paul in jefferson jefferson park resident

    Ask him to tell me what the writing on trash can facing playground means, is it a sign in another language or a bums language or maybe a no hate club for kids?

Attempted Kidnapping

I saw on WGN news that there were 3 attempted kidnappings- one of which was right at Addison and Cicero. A 14 year old boy was waiting for the bus and a white SUV asked for directions then attempted to lure the boy into the car. Be on the lookout!

Feral cat

I am trying to trap a feral cat so that she can be spayed. I have a trap that she has avoided. Any cat trapping experts out there? Or any inventive ideas? I seem to be able to trap possums just fine😏

  • Congratulations!

  • That's great! I'm so glad you were persistent. I hope she can find a home, but at the very least, she will be spayed. We successfully trapped a feral who ended up living happily in our home for over 10 years. Even though he was feral, he adjusted and loved our other cats. He warmed up to us in his way after a long time. Good luck!
