Hit and run

My daughters Jeep was hit in front of a family members home. We know it was a silver Nissan . Neighbors are going through their tapes and hopefully we will get the plate #. If anyone has info on this please have the person come forward before it becomes a hit and run. It happened on Thorndale and Newark. The Nissan has damage to the bumper and headlight we have the debris from the Nissan. TIA

  • I hope you find them. My minivan was a hit and run also, like a sideswipe, but it was parked in my driveway. So figure that one out. We never caught who ever did it.

Cozy Corner on Harlem?

Any information out there as to what is going on with this place? Seems to be stuck in limbo.

  • A recent comment elsewhere on EveryBlock indicated that Cozy's website said it was opening in February.

    At least the parking lot has less drama going on compared to the Higgins/Nagle location.

2 questions

Hi Neighbors
I was wondering if anyone knows when Cozy Restuarant will open on Harlem at the location where Sally's use to be -seems like they have been working on for about a hear -you would think there would be not much of a transition ?
Second -there is a plot of land next to Marriott on Higgins that looks like there tore down entire building -are they rebuilding something there or perhaps trying to add on to Marriott? Live in the area and want to keep up with what's going on in the hood.
Thanks for any info you can provide.

  • See DNAinfo article dated 12/8/16 titled "299 Luxury Micro Apartments Proposed next to Cumberland Marriott".

  • Silver Neighborhood blogger

    Thanks again -Cindy -read 12/8/16 article-and thanks everyone for all information !

No thanks for these folks

Thanksgiving Day at about 11:30AM, I was walking our small poodle mix dog by Oriole Park, grateful that our dog had survived an attack by an unleashed German Sheperd, in October. I spot two irresponsible dog owners playing fetch with their dog which was the
Same situation that lead to the attack on my dog & myself.
Apparently, they did not read the new park postings re. Unleashed dogs in the park. Or as one neighbor previously pointed out, they think city odinances don't apply to them.

Its our business because we're the ones who get hurt, due to their arrogance.

    @Phill How do you know this? are you one of the suspects?

  • Phil, if you knew enough to comment you would understand how a dog thinks. A dog on a leash encountering a dog off leash can easily become dangerous. The dog on leash feels trapped and may act defensively. This can be interpreted by the dog off leash as a threat. Next thing you know, dogs are battling...with their teeth.

    @Phil said, "well mannered (well trained) dog that can play off-leash"...

    ...well-mannered in your world includes attacking other dogs???!!!

New dog walker safety signs - Thanks

In the newly constructed wooden kiosk by the playground, off of Oriole & Gregory.
I was surprised and pleased that the two signs dealt with continuing problem of
owners not keeping their dogs leashed while using the park.

Early in Oct. , our dog & I were attacked by an unleashed dog. We raised our
concerns with the park district, the alderman & the police. Last week we attended
a police CAPS meeting that had this issue on the agenda.

Hopefully, the appearance of the new signs, is a result of the issue being taken
seriously. Thanks to those responsible !! Hope that our neighbors & fellow dog
owners will do the same.

    People who don't leash their dogs if caught should be put in a cage along with their dog and a pit bull!

  • PennyPenguin Chillin' out on EB

    That is excessive force and is frowned upon.

    Why is it excessive?
