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.

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

  • The danger of this intersection is the bridge abutment blocks the view of northbound Western traffic seeing cars exiting Bloomingdale which means those cars won't see what is about to hit them. Bloomindale is narrow making it like a bob sled chute which will lead to vehicles at relatively high...

    The danger of this intersection is the bridge abutment blocks the view of northbound Western traffic seeing cars exiting Bloomingdale which means those cars won't see what is about to hit them. Bloomindale is narrow making it like a bob sled chute which will lead to vehicles at relatively high speeds "merging" into north bound Western traffic who don't know they exist until the last moment.

    Egressing Bloomingdale into Western was made in a time where safety was not a concern. Cars didn't have seat belts, people smoked in airplanes, bars, restaurants, whereever, no one cared. The younger generation cares about these things. In a scenario where cars are only concerned about hitting other cars, pedestrians are always an afterthought. .

    So Hoping this girl might be Shayna missing from Skokie. Her family saw a camera video from where she was lost while with a sitter that showed she was picked up, so it's possible she ended up in Chicago. I did contact Shayna's mom and she is going to contact you as she looks like her girl. She is not on facebook and I believe her grandson who lives in Texas is trying to help her set up a facebook account to comment on on the hospital's post. Her phone number: (224) 766-6566 https://www.facebook.com/LostFoundPetsChicagoIL/photos/a.1940701626149048.1073741828.1753317621554117/2028868947332315/?type=3&theater

  • Ev

    Thank you so much for posting as this lead to Shayna, missing from Skokie and she is back home with her mom tonight Sunday 11/19/2017. Your post helped me remember a lost post I saw from pawboost and the rest is history. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, you gave Shayna and her family a Thanksgiving miracle!

  • Oh this is so great! How great you found the owner! I bet the family is so relieved. Thanks for taking her in, and to Ev for the followup. Thanks for letting us know how it turned out.

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.

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.

Looking for an electrician to replace an outdoor outlet. Any recommendations? It's a small job.
Thanks!

    Hi Tina - our family business is AIK Restoration & Repair. For scheduling, please send an email to aikrandr@yahoo.com https://www.yelp.com/biz/aik-restoration-and-repair-chicago?sort_by=rating_desc

  • Thanks, Robin. Someone is supposed to be coming out today to replace the outlet . If that falls through, I will contact ASAP -looking to have it done today, if possible

  • Not sure if you were able to get someone to take care of your outlet, we just had Aurora Electric come out and take care of some outdoor outlets by our patio and deck. They did a great job and the electrician that came to our home was very professional and respectful. Heck, our dog even liked him! Here is their site, www.AuroraElectricInc.com

    Protect Rental Property Assets with an LLC
    Real Estate has always been considered a safe investment since the supply is finite and the demand grows with the population. Even though we have seen some swings in the real estate market over the past decade, the theory still is held true by many.

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.

  • 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.

Share Christmas/ Sponsoring a child or family

Hello!

Does anyone know of any good local organizations that have a share Christmas program; meaning any program where you are able to donate gifts, and/or sponsor a family/child for Christmas?

Thanks!
