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.

    . 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.

    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.

    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.

White and grey cat found in Logan Square/Humboldt Park close to Mozart and California!

I found this beautiful little baby on my porch when I left for work this morning! Not sure if M/F but I tried to get pics of their markings. Looked sort of young. No collar or tags but could be microchipped? Poor little raincloud seemed tired and hungry. Didn't run away from me and came to the water bowl to drink, but wasn't trusting enough to ask for scritches or try to snuggle me. Does anyone have suggestions of pages where I should post these pics? Please share this and let me know if any of your friends are missing their fur baby!

  • You could try the Facebook pages for Bucktown Community Group or Ukrainian Village Neighborhood watch. Both are very active. Hope the kitty finds its way home!

Found cat

A gray cat with a little white at the throat and light gray green eyes. S/he's been hanging around my property for about two weeks. Looks healthy and not starving. She's afraid of me but I just put food down for her and she approached and ate as soon as I walked away. Don't know if s/he's feral, abandoned or lost but want to do something. If you've lost a gray cat please reply. I have a photo but won't post right now

    Summer did you post to the Bucktown Community News Facebook site? That site has great coverage. Also Chicago Northside Lost And Found Pets page on Facebook. I live in the area so I will keep my fingers crossed and my eyes open for you. Sorry he is missing I have 2 indoor cats and I would be beside myself if mine were missing. Hang in there sweetie and hope you find him.

  • @WendiChicago Interested in local news

    Also, post signs with pictures in a six block radius around your house. Put some of her litter and old clothes that smell like you around the door to your house or apartment. Make sure all the shelters know she is missing, too. GOOD LUCK!!!

  • Also you might want to set a trap outside. Put some food like can tuna and sardines with a blanket over the trap. The smell might bring her around. Someone suggested this to me when my inside cat got out. It worked. Good luck. I was crazy when my cat got out. Please keep us posted.
