winnamac coyotes back or never left ?

Saw a coyote walking in front of chappell on Wed night (11th) about 11:30pm . I was walking on the sidewalk and coyote was inside the fence. Was a decent size. Looked at each other and just kept walking.

  • So cool, I never see them. My guess, because they are so good at hiding, is that they never left.

  • I see these coyotes all the time. I only worry when I see two together then I tend to walk a little faster in the opposite direction. They are eating all the rats so I’m good with them. 👌🏼

Farewell Dear Neighbors

It’s been a good run here on Everyblock. May you all do well and be safe. Thank you for being caring neighbors.

    Having seen the conversations from other neighborhoods, I'm grateful that our share of trolls and racists was relatively low. Relatively.

Does anyone own a pneumatic wrench that I can rent?

I want to change the anode in my water heater. I cannot get the old one out. Yes, I have a 24" socket wrench and a cheater bar. It still won't budge.
I hate to have to disconnect the gas line, and water lines, AND remove the blower just to get more room to work.
I need a little help.
Do you have any ideas?
(Yes, trolls, that was your que.)

Any good one person veterinarian offices on the north side?

The type where they don't have a revolving door of different vets coming and going and you never know who you are going to see or hear from each time you go there?

Thanks.

    Lincoln Park Dog and Cat at 2665 N. Lincoln has had the same two excellent vets forever: Dr. Susan Ferraro and Dr. Margaret Post. Dr. Sue took over the practice from her dad years ago. Even though I moved out of that neighborhood, I trust no one else with my dogs.

    "Primed for redevelopment": Cedar Street Cos. leads wave of Uptown luxury projects
    With 710 apartments, Cedar Street Companies' proposed development at Broadway and Argyle Street Uptown stands out, but not just for its size. The complex - along with similar projects by CRG and Praedium Development - is part of a growing number of luxury apartment mega-projects in a neighborhood previously known more for affordable housing.

    We have owned our 3 flat for 15 years and are overjoyed!! How exciting to see the beginnings of returning Uptown to the grandeur it saw in the 20’s.

Western Avenue

Hello all. We are new to Lincoln Square and are really enjoying the area and the community. Has anyone heard of any plans to resurface Western Avenue and perhaps new streetscaping? Compared to Lincoln, Lawrence (east of Western) and some other streets, Western Ave doesn't look so nice.

  • Jill H 38 years in Chicago, 19 in North Center

    There was a plan floated a couple of years ago to have sections of Ashland and Western be used for express buses, with center boarding islands. The plan would have significantly reduced parking on the street and the number of places where drivers could make left turns. It would also have increased driving times. Not surprisingly, businesses and residents pushed back on those features, and those plans seem to have gone away. I also think federal transit monies needed were not available, and probably won't be for the foreseeable future.

  • Years ago there were dividers down many of the main streets the city removed them. Daley put them back with plantings. They can be a safety hazard. We watched an emergency vehicle trapped on a street with concrete dividers. There was 4 lanes of bumper to bumper traffic and no way for the emergency vehicle to get through. Just food for thought.

Neighbor Filling Up My Recycling Bins

One of the people who lives in the apartment/condo building across the alley from my house has decided he prefers to use my city-provided recycling bin to the recycling bins his building pays for. I know who it is because a) the recycling waste contained mail with his and his partner's name on it and b) my garage security camera took a video of him walking across the alley with his recycling over to my bins.

One of the people who lives in the apartment/condo building across the alley from my house has decided he prefers to use my city-provided recycling bin to the recycling bins his building pays for. I know who it is because a) the recycling waste contained mail with his and his partner's name on it and b) my garage security camera took a video of him walking across the alley with his recycling over to my bins. If this were just a one time thing it would not be that big a deal but it seems to have become a regular habit. Our bins typically get full to the point of over-flowing before they get emptied every other week so we don't need other people's recycling waste in them. I tried posting a polite note on their back alley door and bins asking him to please use his own bins, but to no effect.

Any other suggestions for how to deal with this?

  • chizzleking -- Why 311? Wouldn't you want to call 911, to get the police out there in real time?

  • I don’t think 911 is necessary for stealing a cup of coffee from outside Over Easy but I do think it might be chizzleking slingshot worthy!

    Uptown's Vegan-Friendly Detroit-Style Pizzeria Expands to Full-Service Restaurant
    What started as a carry-out spot for a ex-Detroiter to showcase square-cut, caramelized Motor City-style pizza has evolved into a full-service restaurant in Uptown. Longacre officially launches its new dining room with expanded menu with pastas and plenty of vegan options. The restaurant is from the owners of Kal'ish, the vegan-friendly restaurant located next door.

Lost keys

I know this might be a longshot but my fiancé lost her keys last night during the 4th of July at Winnemac Park.

We were there for a few hours and left at 9:45 pm and were situated behind the largest diamond field just west of the parking lot, behind the 1st baseline.

The keys include a key fob and a LOTR keychain. Yes, it is a Legolas key chain exactly as pictured here (front and back). $20 reward if found. Thank you!

People walking dogs

keep your dog off my yard and out of my planting. If you want your dog to dig and tear up the outside do it in your yard. The outside is NOT a dog park. Walk your dog, pick up your poop and go home to wreck your yard. Show respect for the community. You do not have the “right” to be abusive and disrespectful to the community’s work to keep it looking nice because you can’t train fluffy. My yard is not open to your dog!

  • Joeflatwoods, your axe has been grinded dear, put it back in your tool box for another post.

  • future alderman future alderman

    if every dog that walked on my landlords parkway had a "bad poop" by the end of ANY day humans would have to cross the street! everyone wants to say "it's hardly ever"-but when 300 dogs stop on your lawn EVERY DAY just 1% is TOO MUCH-and it's MUCH more than 1%---more like 10%
