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.

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.

    Review: WISHIN' CONTROL at The Comedy Clubhouse | PerformInk
    By Jonald Jude Reyes When problems grow weary on a person's mind, sometimes the last string of hope is to just wish. "I wish I would win the lotto," or "I wish the right person would come along," or "I wish Kevin James would make another Mall Cop!"

    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!

Red light violation: Division/Damen

Neighbors, has anyone else received a red light violation from turning south and Damen from heading east on Division? I stopped at the light, had my blinker on, then turned. A few weeks later I got a red light violation. There is no "no turn on red" sign so I am stumped.

I tried to fight it with the city with the pictures of the intersection and they declined my contest without any explanation. This seems like a total scam.

Any tips or advice for fighting this?

Hello neighbors: Something to look out for in near Damen / Thomas / Hoyne /Haddon areas of 60622: This evening while I was walking my dog, a man in a white Volkswagen sedan moved his car up to block the crosswalk I was trying to cross. He was looking straight at me and jerking off. Appalled, I turned and walked the other way. Then I get to my house not even a block away and another different man in a white Nissan sedan is doing the same thing in his car in front of my house not even 5 minutes later. Two different dudes, two different white cars within less than a block away from each other. I did not have my phone on my so I did not call the police to report either incident and I was too grossed out to go back out the car parked in front of my house to get the plate number. If you are in this zone of 60622, perhaps keep an eye out and be safe.

    Mute, according to Illinois Statutes and City Ordinance no matter what size of taser it is considered possession of a weapon. But a small pocket size taser or mace would be a misdemeanor. But I don't know any Police Officer that would charge you if you were being attacked and you used it. Mace is sold practically everywhere. You want to get the stream and not the spray. The stream does exactly that. The spray goes all over and could spray an innocent. The stream is like a water hose and goes directly at your target. There is a saying that says it is better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6. The mace sells for about $10 to $15. I don't think you are the kind of person that would be walking down the street and be subject to stop and frisk. It is better to be safe than sorry. If you were my sister I wouldn't hesitate to get her both to protect herself. Stay safe Mute
