Church parking

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

    NO! to bump outs They can only be installed if PERMANENT parking lanes are dedicated Logan. You can't have a bump out without dedicated parking lanes. The accidents caused by that would, themselves, be very serious. And the LAST thing we need is 24/7/265 parking on the blvd.!

    The BEST solution to the blvd. parking situation, IMHO, would be:

    * to REQUIRE CHURCHES (by ordinance)
    * to have orange-vested parking monitors
    * with safety (light) wands
    * standing posts
    * at each end of each row/block of parked cars
    * on every block where cars are parked
    * from the time the first car parks to the time the last car leaves
    * with mandatory $500 fines per violation per side per block
    * strictly limit church related parking to Sat. & Sun. 9 am-2 pm
    * have the city tow trucks on the blvd. at the end of the permissive parking period
    * and REQUIRE each church to carry additional personal injury insurance coverage of $5 Million/$10 Million and property damage coverage of $250,000 specifically to cover deaths/injuries/property damage caused or contributed to by church-going parkers.

    The monitors can direct traffic around the blockages ... and like crossing guards, stop traffic to assist peds trying to cross the street.

    OR - close the main blvd. to ALL vehicular traffic on Sat. and Sun. ... with the tow trucks standing by.

    BTW, Cyclists - PLEASE ride on the frontage roads (which are called "parkways," I believe). And when you ride the parkways, PLEASE hug the NON-PARKING side of the street and NOT the parking side where the cars are.

    Cyclists tend to wear dark/black clothing at night, with no lights or a little dinky light. You CANNOT be seen, especially when you are riding up against the parked cars under the dim streetlights. You are nothing more than a shadow at night. Also, be aware that a person's (driver's) night vision greatly diminishes with age. You don't have to be 99 years old to suffer from this - vision weakening and eye diseases begin as early as 40 years of age.

  • Gil! Thank you for your comments. If only they could be put into action.

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.

  • JeannyB Old Apartment renovator, architect,

    . I still think a more intense street light would be necessary for the pedestrians though as repaving would probably not last due to Chicago climate and the fact that it's somewhat under a viaduct (the 606) which always has bad pavement anyway. That would be better than a stop sign, if it would stay visible. Right now you can see a little portion of coming traffic thru the posts, but not everything....and you're not totally sure of what's coming and how fast.
    Where should it be placed exactly? T He more detail you tell the city, the better.

  • Artist girl Artist and Muscian

    I didn't say a stop sign, I said a convex traffic mirror that would show approaching traffic reflected in it. It would solve the problem. You would place it to the right, on the north side of Bloomingdale, where it meets Western, and turn it so that it shows approaching traffic.

Ronny's Bar Project/Golden Teardrops Happening?

Anyone in the know know what happened or is going to happen with the Ronny's bar conversion that was planned by some of the Longman and Eagle/Parsons folks? They were going to totally rehab Ronny's bar. I see they initially applied for permits back in June and July...as referenced below...but there seems to have been no activity since. I'm curious if they're still going to move ahead. It would be nice to have that eyesore renovated.

    (Near the ends of these types of projects, there are so many things left in the hands of the city, city inspectors, it's hard to know when to post an update, as we ourselves wait for all of the unknowns to reveal themselves. I hope the gap in responding wasn't too frustrating!)

    That said, I'm please to report that we are officially open!

    Please do stop in, if only to poke around and see the place. And ask for me while there, if I'm around I'd happily meet any of you in person and discuss the project in more detail.

    Thank you all so very much for the continued patience and support in bringing this business to life. It has been a long, long process - for sure - but we are very happy with the results and are so excited to share it with the neighborhood.

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.

  • so what's the scam part?

    what happens next?

  • Scam is they either do the work, and its super shotty, and they have your money, or they will case your house. Classic scam and has been going on for a long time. Google scams like this, not hard to find.

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!

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.

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..

    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.

  • I’m so sorry your car was hit! The story had it wrong - The shots definitely happened on Troy, I think the guys were heading south, two cars shooting at eathother, as cars windows were shot out from the front and back.

Trees damaged at former MegaMall teardown

Antunovich Associates were the developer here, Houston 7979 Parking is listed as the owner. Fences leaning on trees and falling all over, exposed roots on most of the trees on the lot along Linden, lots of garbage piling up and there are now some trees knocked over.

  • I agree it's a mess and the fence should be fixed before the whole place becomes a dump. Those maple trees are not part of the final design so don't get too attached to them.

    Why ruin a good view of the blue line as all eight cars disappear into the subway and give way to eight more ascending out from it ?
