Hit and Run last night

Last night (Friday) a little after 7:00pm my husband was hit by a car while crossing the street at California + Cortland. The police came, and he was taken to the hospital with a concussion, broken nose, and pretty badly beat up. We are grateful it wasn't worse. Regardless, the video from the liquor store wasn't enough to see a license plate. We think it was a red Ford SUV. If anyone saw anything could you let me know? Thank you!

  • krw

    And I am so sorry this happened to you and so glad its not worse. Take care.

Church parking

Seems like this makes crossing Logan even more dangerous than usual when you can't see oncoming traffic at all.

  • It's insanity that they allow Churchgoers to openly flaunt the rules, which are spelled pretty simply on the signs. NO PARKING, TOW ZONE. But the Alderman need the church vote, so this nonsense happens, and unfortunately it will likely take somebody being killed before they change anything.

  • How do you feel about the trucks parked, sometime double parked, all day Sundays for the Farmer's Market?

  • Presumably the farmer's market gets a permit and the additional foot traffic might somewhat help with the speeding. This picture is Logan and Maplewood which is an uncontrolled intersection and people tend to be driving 3x the speed limit by the time they're here so zero visibility of the handful of pedestrians trying to cross here is bad. I would think the church wouldn't want their parishioners run over either.

Home repair scams

There are some guys driving around in a big shinny new bright blue pick up truck asking if you want any home repairs (foundations/cement work). One guy comes out of the truck and ask people who are outside working on their house. He comes up to you very nicely like he knows you. He was carrying a black folder we assume to write people estimates. We said no and they left. There is no name on the truck and the back plate on the truck has a darken plastic cover over it so you can not read the plate number. Male 30's dark hair buzz cut.

  • These guys tried this on us about a year ago. Same, exact, scam. Dude acts like he knows you...won't give you a business card...buddy stays in the truck. The black binder too. I politely told him no thanks numerous times...he was very persistent. The whole thing felt off to me. Definitely a scam.

  • so what's the scam part?

Scam? Peoples Energy Bill??

I live at the Drake/Armitage Block and 3 people (one guy, 2 women) just came to my house asking to see a copy of my People's Gas energy bill. Told them no. They told me if they don't look at it my prices will increase sky rocking next month. Is this a new scam going around?

Yet another stray package....

Hello all,

I figured I'd give it a try. If you live in the vicinity of Maplewood and Logan, and received an unexpected package, about 12" x 12" x 4" (cardboard box) addressed to the last name Martin, could you message me? I know it's a long shot, but it was an eBay purchase and USPS shows it as having been delivered to the front door. (And if you're the person who stole it, I hope you have a 16mm film projector because otherwise it's junk to you...)

Thanks,

Jeff

    UPS sent me a message they had delivered my package. I looked all over, not there! I told LL Bean, which sent a replacement. It arrived. Then I got a message from LL Bean saying they had received my return. I asked, what return? Turns out UPS SAID they had delivered my package, but never did. Instead, it was somewhere in their warehouse or truck and they returned it. I wonder if something similar happened to you. I have had packaged delivered by UPS for years, I am friends with the driver even and this has never happened. Best of luck finding your package or at least learning its fate.

    It is likely stolen, but I have had at least one package that showed "delivered" on the USPS website that was in fact at the post office all along. When I asked how this could happen, blank stares. Could be a mixup, but I wonder if there are productivity targets to meet, not to mention the inconvenience of filling out a little card to leave for you....

concern about safety

There is an urgent need for adequate lighting on the North side of the 606 at Bloomingdale and Western. The pavement is very uneven and dangerous to pedestrians. Also any traffic coming from the East trying to merge onto Western cannot see what's coming from northbound traffic on Western. There should be a way for cars to see what's coming on Western, in order to merge without blocking the crosswalk or entering Western since that's very dangerous to the moving cars on Western as well.

    You're quite sure of yourself and clueless about how people navigate. People merge into traffic from alleys all over creation. I don't know what ADA means or why this would be considered a violation, but Western is not a highway or an expressway, and the traffic on Western would be compelled to stop for a stop sign. If you live on Bloomingdale, east of Western there are NOT many ways of getting to where you want to go without a lot of one-way streets, cut offs and lots of frustration, so you shouldn't be dispensing generic advice that in reality is quite meaningless.
    You also just describe the sidewalk problem, without any problem-solving. Stronger streetlights would definitely help some one on foot see the ground and not trip over the uneven junk and get hurt.
    Don't forget there's a lot more bldgs. going up, without parking, which assumes that these folks will be navigating by bicycle or on foot...which means a lot more traffic.

  • ADA means Americans with Disabilities Act - the sidewalk is not wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs plus pedestrians.

Bike stolen (Fyxation Eastside champion with stripes)

Hi Neighbors, if you see this bike anywhere, please reach out. I love this bike, and it was stolen while I was getting married, super bogus. I recently replaced the fork, so the front does not have the stripes that the body has, making it unique. It was stolen from our basement laundry room in Logan Square near Unity Park. It has a black rack and a copper bell.

  • Achilles Flaneur ear witness

    Very sorry to hear about this and the timing is especially lousy. A number of everyblock neighbors had similar experiences earlier this year in this neighborhood,myself included. We think the thief used a credit card to jimmy the lock as there was no sign of forced entry and we had only a doorknob lock on our exterior basement door.
    i wish you luck in finding it and best wishes in your marriage.

Suspicious Activity

Hi all,

I think there is a man casing the homes on the 2900 block of Wisner. He rang my doorbell on Tuesday evening, but had left my porch by the time I came to the door. I saw him pacing in front of my house and talking on his phone. Yesterday he rang again. When I answered the door, he asked me if we have Comcast cable and internet. When I answered “yes,” he said “Then I can’t sell you anything” and left. I didn’t take a good look at him. He was an Asian man with medium to heavy build. He was wearing light colored clothes.

  • Bonnie L. Braverman Logan Square Lover

    If you are him again call the police. Don't answer your door unless you know who is behind the closed door. Be very careful and keep us posted.

  • You can also request 'suspicious activity' on you block by calling the police station and police cars will make extra trips down your block. (If you re close to a school, that helps in the call.) Do call because remember 'if it doesn't feel right, than is is mostly likely NOT right.." We watch out for each other..

Gunshots in Logan square?

At about 12:40am early Monday I hear what sounded like gunshots. 1 shot then followed by 7 after. Did anyone else hear this? I call 911 to be on the safe side I told them it sounded like it came from the direction of Diversey and Troy st.

  • bigbadron sorry.

    yeah, i'm trying to figure out what exactly happened. we just got back from a vacation and found out our car was hit. judging by the trajectory, it looks like the shots went north from Diversey. our neighbor said the shots were loud enough as if they were in the alley. regardless if the shots were from the alley or Diversey, the CBS story doesn't make sense. so either they messed up the report, or the guy who was shot was lying about what happened.

Please be careful and keep your dogs and kids away from this building/area.

    Thank you for being willing to help! Sometimes acclimating a cat to a new home can take a little time and needs to be done in a particular way when there are other resident cats. The new cat needs to be confined to a room where she can assess her new surroundings. Items, e.g., blankets, beds, between resident cats and new cat need to be introduced to the others. After some time and the new cat feels comfortable in "her" room, they can be allowed to see each other from a distance. New cat can be introduced to other parts of the house while the residents are confined, etc. It can be a slower than desired process but it can work out. I'm sharing in the hopes you weren't aware like may people and can then re-try the introduction. Thank you again for your kind-heartedness!

    Carla is right, it can often take a ton of patience in bringing in a new animal. I just adopted 2 kittens about 5 weeks ago and it hasn't been easy for me mainly because I, like other humans want things to happen faster than fur creatures actually need. I'm definitely learning patience. I did exactly as Carla says above. It took 10 days to get Sammy kitten to come out from under a dresser in his room. About another week before he was able to leave that room. At least another week before he found his favorite spots to sleep in the house and finally he is playing with the other cats...but, he still runs from me! I've wanted to give up a few dozen times but the two kittens are bonded and at least Sammy is now comfortable with his fur brothers. But gosh, it does take some time. Cats DO adjust in due time. Hoping you give Sparkie more time? Its so hard to find new homes considering there are so so many animals out there needing homes. Best of luck to you!

After watching the tow truck driver, yank the front axle of this sedan from the parking space, dragging this car so he could hook it up and take it, I decided to record the rest of his 25 second rip off..You can see in the video that the driver saw me taking pictures of his grab on the way out...he waved at me. I waved back with a finger salute.

Beware where you park, that's the bottom line here.

Dog Abuse (Dalmatian) by Logan and Western Underpass

African American man with sunglasses and fatigues pulling Dalmatian in a Radio Flyer wagon! He was also carrying a bunch of signs. He was pulling wagon and the dog fell out - poor pup was obviously petrified of him. He picked dog up and then forcefully threw her back in wagon and beat her. I stopped car in middle of western and Logan and told him to stop. He got extremely irate and threatening to me. I had to move car. Please keep an eye out for this pup. Broke my heart that I had to leave her. This is NOT OKAY! What can we do???

  • Barbs hey you kids, get off my lawn!

    CPLS84,
    I misspoke and I do now remember clearly that he called this dog his service dog.

    I am in no way suggesting or condoning the people steal his dog.

    It would be better if the dog COULD sit on the sidewalk, but he can't; he's all cramped up in...

    It would be better if the dog COULD sit on the sidewalk, but he can't; he's all cramped up in a red Radio Flyer wagon. Either way, the guy is somewhat volatile, and the dog does not appear to be comfortable in the situations the guy puts him in. Add on to that that many people have stated he sometimes hits the dog, and something has to be done to help both of them, which is what I said the last time. So don't jump jump all over me.

Surprise Party

All, I'm looking for a good spot to host a surprise party for my girlfriend's 2nd 29th birthday. Does anybody have any good recommendations for places with an event space (hopefully with TVs as there will be at least 1 football game multiple people would like to have on) and possibly deals on drinks and things? Thanks in advance/

  • Whiskey Business, upstairs...

  • Park and field is a good spot. Dedicated party room with a fireplace, full private event menu, plus the ability to go outdoors and use the fire pits
