    well, big, i have lived here, in the same location, for 40+ years.

    when i came here logan blvd itself was peaceful (tho Kedzie blvd and Wrihgtwood w of the square were the badlands) - but people who walked even 1 block n or s of logan put their lives on the line because it was a shooting gallery with scumbanger corner boys peddling their poison on street corners and gang signs tagged on the fronts of buildings, and of course up and down the alleys.

    with investment, the scum were driven further away (score one for gentrification!) ... but never out. they were always there. they are always there.

    so sure, if there's no gunfire outside your front door don't worry about it, big. if armed robberies and armed assaults are not occurring on or around your block then h3ll - don't give it a second thought. and even if they are, big, you are free to ignore them, secure in the solitude of your own home.

    the people who post here (and who should also be dialling 911) do not do so to boast. what an insult to them to suggest that is their motivation.

    they post here and elsewhere as a Neighborhood Alert to let others know what is happening, where, when, and how often.

    my point is that social media postings are not enough. this increasing level of gun violence on OUR streets requires us to take an activist approach to the problem. march. protest. make our voices heard. city hall and CPD HQ respond to that when it's on the 10 o'clock news.

    and yes, it is increasing and it is spreading to parts of the community that have been peaceful for 30 years.

    there are 2 ways to boil a lobster:

    1) drop a live one into a pot of boiling water. it will thrash around and make a fuss because it knows it is in jeopardy. this is the equivalent of moving to the area around 69th and Paxton or Roosevelt and Sacramento - two particularly lethal locations. from the moment you park there, you know you are in the wrong place if safety is of concern to you. i know this because i have worked those areas - in the middle of the night.

    2) but drop the lobster into a pot of cold water and turn up the heat - it gets cooked without ever knowing what happened. this is the equivalent of living in LS. this is the equivalent of thinking the situation isn't an imminent danger, whatever is going on will go away, and it's not on your doorstep so why should i worry.
    so, big, if you want to stick your head in the sand, that's your choice to make.

    but i love LS. i care dearly about my neighbors. i know, understand, and have studied crime patterns city-wide for decades. the street shootings in LS have increased over the past 12-18 months. moreso over the past 8 months - just as they have become more brazen. the most recent ones have nothing to do with us - they are warring scumbanger factions and we are just caught in the middle.

    it is a trend.

    and since even a handgun bullet can travel through open space for up to a mile - perhaps 1/4 mile in a dense city environment - no one who ever HEARS gunfire should EVER feel safe. if you can HEAR a shot then it CAN reach you.

    i want my neighbors to realize that and to start raising holy h3ll NOW before the water in this pot gets any warmer.

    and if you don't like what i have to say, just mute me, because i will not stop saying it until people wake up.

Gunshot at Cortland and Armitage

Does anyone have any info on this? I thought I heard a single gunshot around 5:30pm on 1/9 but second guessed myself and didn’t call the police and now the police have the street cordoned off at Cortland and Albany with detectives looking around. Quite a bit of police activity.

  • LarryB Dog owner / wine sipper

    There was a family store at the SW corner Dickens and Albany run by the Pold family. The group I ran with hung out there and Palmer Park in the 1960's. Pretty quiet back then. Haven;t been there in a long time. I wonder if it is still a store front.

Recent string of shootings 1900 Block Sawyer Ave.

Our block had two drive by shootings (thank goodness no one died) within 7 days of one another that the Alderman reported as gang related. No problems on the block that I'm aware in the previous 2 years we lived here. Anyone know what's changed lately in the area where we'd see this sudden increase in drive by shootings?

  • Michael McDonough Resident of BelCragin

    Thats just it,they don't aim they just drive by while pulling the trigger. They don't care.

    Pink Squirrel Goes Retro in Logan Square
    Walking into the Pink Squirrel (2414 N. Milwaukee Ave., Logan Square), you'd think the spot had been here for decades. With vintage-style booths, a few bowling lanes, and old-fashioned glassware, the cozy bar leans heavily retro. During a recent visit, people packed in the Logan Square bar eating frothy ice cream cocktails as oldies played on the stereo.

1900 blk Mozart

9:30 pm, about 5-6 shots fired, then police activity. Anyone know what’s up?

  • I live on Mozart and heard a woman at the end of the block speaking with the cops. She said they looked outside after hearing the shots and saw 4 people running down Mozart towards Armitage. I think she was also describing a dark sedan driving by but didn't say it was speeding away or anything. Best bet, at this point, seems to be a gang-related shooting.

I would like to touch base with the owner of a vacant piece of land near our home. Google maps gave me the address for this piece of land, and I found a name associated with ownership for that address via a website that is not an official city of Chicago website.

In looking up the address on the city of Chicago website's tax portal, I can't find the owner's mailing address to reach out to him - or even a pin number for the address (the message I get is, "No records have been found for this property location. Please try again."). I can't even verify the name I have is the accurate name of the land owner.

Has anyone run into a situation like this? Do you have suggestions for how I might touch base with the land owner? The land is NOT city owned, as verified by the Alderman's office. Thanks in advance for any help.

  • Hi all - thanks for your help here (specifically Brad and Maplewood John). Apparently the CTA runs under this land, so it’s “property class 0” (CTA owned, to my understanding). I’ve been in touch with the CTA to try to get a response for my inquiry.

    I’d also like to flag that property ownership is incredibly public! This isn’t a strange concept!

    Thanks again!

Peoples Gas Pricing | Survey

Hey Loganites-

I get a monthly email comparing my gas usage with similar homes to ours. Apparently, we are super inefficient compared to homes of similar size. We live in a north facing, late 19th-century brick cottage home with radiate heat. Most of the home is original, as there is no real insulation between the brick and the original plaster. Windows are fairly new and our house is around 1900 square feet. Our December bill came in around $270.

What are you gas bills? Thanks!

  • nearthehighway Logan Square resident since 2002

    you can rent a infrared thermometer with a screen that will show you all the 'cold spots' in your house. Its pretty cool! It becomes very clear where your problems are.

  • I pay to heat 3 residential units (don't ask why) and I am always surprised when I get those usage letters telling me how well (or not) I am doing compared to my neighbors. According to those, I must leave the front door open on one unit and hardly heat the others!!! Neither of which is true so I am also curious as to how they make their comparisons...by the way, I keep my house at 68 in the day and 60 at night.

    And put up a parking lot…

    My business was a 20 year tenant in the building immediately north of the parking lot that was once the Olson Park and Waterfall. At the time of the waterfall that building (2850 N Pulaski designed by Alfred S. Alschuler) was the ILG Electric Ventilating Company of Chicago. It closed in 1990 or 1992. At the same time as the construction of the waterfall and park Mr ILG bought land in NIles in 1934 to create a park for his employees and built the Leaning Tower at 6300 W. Touhy. The family later donated some of the land and the tower to the YMCA. The Y deeded it to the Village of Niles and the Village recently refurbished it. It would be interesting to know if there is any records of interviews with Mr. Olsen and Mr. ILG discussing their two highly unusual public spaces.

Strack and Van Til closing Elston location

Strack and Van Til is closing its Chicago Logan Square location by the end of April. Usually my third or fourth choice, but a shame nonetheless. What will replace it I wonder? Ha Trader Joe's?

  • The original plan for Chick Fillet was the old brewery lot next to Home Depot where Value City "furniture" is now. Supposedly Proco Joe didn't like some of the views of their CEO and created a scene for publicity and used his famous third world thug tactics to halt them. The site across from Popeyes is a better location for a drive through so Moreno may have benefited them.

  • Chick-Fil-A and Popeyes are different. Chick Fil A doesn't do proper fried chicken, just cutlets and nuggets. I find them vastly overrated, but to each their own. There are several others in town now as well, so if you really, really want to pwn the libs you can just go downtown and have at it.

    Hi neighbor,
    I have a ‘98 CRV that was stolen from the 2900 block of Albany last year. It was abandoned within a week and landed in a police impound lot. It appears that the car was borrowed to move some landscaping brick. Aside from a little sharpie graffiti on the dash my rig was Ok. I will say, though, that I am the one who found it. The police had it in their lot for a day and never notified me. I recommend manually entering your vehicle info into the towing lot database everyday to see if it pops up. Don’t leave it up to the police or you’ll end up paying for several day of impound time because they didn’t notify you. I hope your ride turns up like mine! Keep your chin up. -Hatie

Missing Cat

Our backyard cat got into a fight with another feral cat last weekend. She seems like she got injured and has disappeared. We hoped she would come back (she sometimes disappears for a couple of days), but we haven't seen since Sunday. Any news on a sighting is appreciated. She is super friendly (often mistaken as an escaped indoor cat).

Scylla is a female tabby, just about a year and a half old, smallish (but has her winter belly for sure!). She has some orange markings on her back. Please see attached photos. She was last seen around Rockwell/Lyndale on Sunday 1/7.

Recommendations for replacing building entry doors

Greetings, neighbors-

Asking for recommendations again. Our building's two entry doors are in dire need of replacement. Years of "wear/tear", weather and handling has caught up with these doors and now they are falling apart. I am looking for an expert matter that can replace these and hope it can be replace with auto door closer that will close these doors quietly and prevent these from being slammed. I have a neighbor that releases her frustration on these doors.

Please advise and again thank you all. Your recommendations have been life savers.

  • We went to American Thermal Window Products for our two entry way doors and are very happy with the results. americanthermalwindow.com

  • KPG Logan Square resident since 1987

    We also used American thermal for a back door on a crooked porch. Others said they wouldn't or couldn't do it, but American Thermal had no problem and it's been two years now with no problems so far. They are very easy to work with. A little bit pricey, but it was important to get this door secured.

    If your doors face south it's best to go with steel doors, if not wood always makes a home or condo building look beautiful.
