Internet Service Providers

Moving to Albany Park from Rogers Park next week and need to get internet setup. What Internet Service Providers do you use? I currently have RCN and am sad that it is not available in my new area. I've already checked with AT&T and they can only provide 10MBPS. I need at least 50MBPS. Thank you.

  • Try to see if Verizon Fios , Spectrum Charter and WebPass from Google is available in your area

  • We’ve had xfinity for several years w/o problems - except you do have to threaten to cancel every year or two

Water - digestive issues?

Hi all,

I've been living in Albany Park for 3 years and developed digestive issues after about a year of living here. At first I thought I had a bacterial infection from traveling overseas for a brief trip, but when I spoke with doctors they told me I hadn't been out of country long enough and I likely got something here in the U.S. I have wondered if it something in my environment, because my roommate developed similar symptoms within...

Hi all,

I've been living in Albany Park for 3 years and developed digestive issues after about a year of living here. At first I thought I had a bacterial infection from traveling overseas for a brief trip, but when I spoke with doctors they told me I hadn't been out of country long enough and I likely got something here in the U.S. I have wondered if it something in my environment, because my roommate developed similar symptoms within months of moving into my apartment.

Has anyone experienced the following symptoms after moving/living here:

bloating (after drinking water, or eating certain foods*)
gas pain
constipation
diarrhea
naseua (after eating certain foods*)
headaches
weight loss

*My roommate and I have both become much less tolerant of dairy, gluten, or any foods that have fructose and take more to digest (ie: apples, brocolli, as opposed to bananas, potatoes). I no longer drink milk, or eat yogurt, cheese or bread. Neither does my roommate. See "fod-map diet" online.

I am curious if there is an issue with our water or something else in our environment.

Please let me know if you've experienced anything similar.

Thanks!
Albany Park Resident

  • Yes, Rebecca L. It's also common for the intensity of many "sensitivities" and "reactions" to increase with age; what may have escaped unnoticed in childhood can become an issue to be dealt with in later years.

  • I was wondering this same thing! I’ve had digestive problems and food intolerances develop since moving here 3 years ago, but figured I was just getting old 😄 hmmmm

As promised, information from 2012 CAPS Beat Meeting. Check out the flyers below. Notes from our Beat Officers 20 District Police Station Our Beat officers remind us that increases seen in Service Calls and Incidents rise during the warmer months in Chicago. Thefts are up over last month – again they STRESS: 1) LOCK YOUR CARS ON THE STREET. TRIPLE CHECK! 2) Do not leave items visible in cars – headphones, charger cords, change, sunglasses, even empty shopping bags 3) Don’t leave your purse in the car in the garage. 4) LOCK your car AND the GARAGE it’s in! Bank ATM skimmers are back and in our area. When using an ATM: 1) Make sure you swipe the correct Door Access reader – some thieves have put a second swiper on the outside of the door to make you think you are swiping the real one, the door doesn’t open and they have your card information. 2) At the ATM – tug on the piece protruding from the ATM. If it’s fake, it will come off (call 911 to report it). If it’s real, you can’t pull it off (they promised me) 3) Cover your hand when typing in your pin, even when no one is around. Thieves mount cameras to record your pin number as you enter it. 4) Report a lost card right away even if you think it’s at your mother’s house! It may not be.. 5) Get text alerts on your phone for all Debit and Credit cards and monitor every charge. Shred Credit Card applications and offers! Don’t give any information like your Social Security number, bank information, etc, over the phone to someone who called YOU-whether an individual or company you do business with, call them back on a number you have direct (not one the person on the phone gives you) A few reports of stolen items are happening nearby – 2000 W Berwyn a car was stolen-Lock those cars (this one was but many reported are NOT) 2000 W Farragut had a burglary (the landlord and repairman left the door unlocked after leaving) 1) Lock all doors and windows when you leave, go to sleep, etc. 2) Close shades to avoid having your 65” flat screen, and a purse on the table, visible to people outside
