LBP, still located in the Ravenswood Manor neighborhood, now offers dance education to more than 300 students, aged three to adult, through classes in ballet, pointe, jazz, hip-hop, tap and more. In addition to a year-end Annual Recital, LBP students have the opportunity to perform in two full-length, professional-style ballet performances each year, including Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker and an annual spring ballet, such as Swan Lake, Romeo and Juliet, or Coppèlia. Le Ballet Petit is also home to the Living By Performing Dance Company, which performs competitively around the region and nationally.

Anyone hear shots fired near Whipple and Cornelia a few minutes ago?

Looks like police were called out but anyone have other details?

  • EN

    Thanks. I am a heavy sleeper and woke up to the last 3 shots but I was not even sure that they were shots at first because they were so loud. Then I looked out the window and saw a police car shining the flashlight around. Next time I'll just call right away. Thanks!

Hello EveryBlock Albany Park, I am on the board of directors for a 14 unit condo association. In 8 years we have had 3 management companies that have been horrible at managing projects, new roof, tuckpointing, cleaning of sewer lines, contracting for landscaping and managing assessment collection. We have a 3 member board and currently we are nearly self-managing. Our building is not socially toxic and is majority occupied by owners. We are looking for relief and work with a company that is detail oriented and is competent at managing projects i.e. getting estimates, and seeing that projects are done in a timely manner. Basic management of finances collect assessments, budgeting and property tax appeals. Your feedback on your experiences would be greatly appreciated.

Food Dumped in the Curbs

Springtime in our neighborhood apparently means the return of people dumping food in the curbs between the sidewalk and the street, or at least dumping more than usual.

In particular, someone on the west side of Sawyer between Waveland and Grace and around that corner on the south side of Grace between Sawyer and Spaulding makes a habit of dumping piles of meat scraps in the grass in those areas.

Today I found what looked like the remains of a...

Springtime in our neighborhood apparently means the return of people dumping food in the curbs between the sidewalk and the street, or at least dumping more than usual.

In particular, someone on the west side of Sawyer between Waveland and Grace and around that corner on the south side of Grace between Sawyer and Spaulding makes a habit of dumping piles of meat scraps in the grass in those areas.

Today I found what looked like the remains of a pork roast in a neat pile. Given this weekend, I'd expect to attribute this behavior to alcohol-induced stupidity, but this has happened in that location multiple times. I don't know if there's someone working in the area who dumps their uneaten lunch or if a neighbor in the area thinks they are feeding strays, but I wish they'd learn that this just attracts rats and presents a danger for the neighbors with pets.

I clean it up when I find it, and have reported it to city services, though I don't know what they can do about it. The one neighbor who has seen me cleaning this up didn't know why it happened, either.

Please keep an eye out. And please, dump your food scraps in the garbage. Thanks.

Found Keys

I found a keyring with 3 keys on it next to my car. Anyone know who lost them?

  • I lost my entire purse with several different key sets. One set of keys had Master lock keys on them I believe there was just 4 keys on that ring. One set I believe had 2-3 keys on a big safety pin like keyring and I believe it also had a blue chinese good luck charm thing. Another keyring had 3- 4 keys with a red/white/blue/ ribbon. And then another plain keyring with just gold 2-4 gold keys on them.

Commercial vehicles on residential streets

Has anyone noticed the large amount of commercial vehicles parked on the residential streets lately. Clearly these vehicles are not being used for personal use. I keep seeing all these vans and trucks that are parked overnight every night. I thought they were supposed to only park on business streets. Normally i wouldn't care but last night I counted 33 of them on my walk back home! Correct me if I'm wrong but I see everyone on here always complaining about parking......this would surely free up some spaces. Maybe we should contact the alderman?

  • Havana own in Albany Park 30 yrs

    My experience with vehicles that display "Truck" plates just recently, I called 311 and Alderman and that particular vehicle was ticketed and never parked on my block again. This van had no company logo and no windows at side/ back. I believe there is a difference in the law between passenger vans and commercial vans.

  • Sorry folks I'm old and it usually takes me a minute to get back on the computer. I took a stroll around the neighborhood last night and there were scrap trucks, vans with logos, vans without logos but had ladder racks and pipe racks. Can we call on those enormous...

    Sorry folks I'm old and it usually takes me a minute to get back on the computer. I took a stroll around the neighborhood last night and there were scrap trucks, vans with logos, vans without logos but had ladder racks and pipe racks. Can we call on those enormous vans?? I think they are called sprinters? I try no to complain but parking is always a pain in the but and I'm not about to add another handicap spot on the block. those are just not fair!!! Also the peoples gas trucks are fine.....I'm not referring to them. Maybe someone can send a text message to the alderman? I'm not to good with this stuff.
