Drivers Chucking Objects At Your Car After You Honk At Them For Safety Reasons

Has anyone else experienced this? Ever since I moved here from Detroit, I started experiencing this...me honking at a person, because they are about to hit me, and them instantly getting pissed, when it's very obvious I was not in the wrong and just saying , "hey I'm here I don't think you see me!

Ever since I moved here from Detroit, I started experiencing this...me honking at a person, because they are about to hit me, and them instantly getting pissed, when it's very obvious I was not in the wrong and just saying , "hey I'm here I don't think you see me! Ive had multiple people do this, almost get out of their car, one did once, screamed at me and threaten to beat me up...the last two people have just gotten in front of me anyways, then slowed down or pulled over...opened their window up and throw some hard object at my car.

It is very dumb, dangerous, and traumatizing.

I can't help but wonder ever what the other person is thinking.... especially since they usually have another person in the car watching them throw a temper tantrum baicslly...when they were in the wrong...

affordable snow removal service/person?

hello neighbors!
We are a new business at the corner of Avondale and Pulaski and we are looking for a more affordable option for our snow removal. We're interested in a professional service for heavier snow falls (over one inch) and/or a local person who could just (perhaps with a snowblower?) take care of our sidewalks during light snowfalls. We've gotten lucky so far this year but there is still (purportedly) a lot of winter days left!

Neighborly Litigation (Chadha v. NPES)

Many on this forum talk about litigating, be it for some unneighborly thing or other. Well, here is your chance to read the behind the scenes workings of the Chicago Way in its entirety (link below - get some popcorn and settle in) and VOTE.

This is the culmination of 7 years of attorney fees and a waste of our taxpayer-funded court's time/resources, in my opinion, of course.

Link: https://chadhavnpes.weebly.com/appeal-brief.html

    Appeal Brief
  • Update: Chadha: 95; NPES: 84; Deadlocked: 33

  • Update: Chadha 129; NPES: 106; Deadlocked: 41 - And our "Progressive" Alderman of the 47th Ward had no qualms about being honored recently by the school that engaged in this.

Breakroom / Finches / Ravinia Brewing

Does anyone know when Ravinia Brewing will open? That carcass of a store front is just sitting there.

  • I sent Ravinia a message and this is the response I got:
    I wish I had a better answer for you, but unfortunately there are a variety of issues to work through at the Montrose spot that continue to put timing and planning up in the air. It is a wonderful spot and a wonderful neighborhood which we are really hoping to make work - but some thing are simply out of our control. Keep checking back with us and hopefully we'll know more soon!

  • Eric Pepeson NW-side deplorable, based-stickman, commie-crusher

    That's too bad, ya' know I always wanted to open up a nice restaurant & bar. That building would a make a good dirty neighborhood strip club with a nasty lunch buffet. Maybe put some of those slot machines in the back and patrons can also bet on the ponies with an OTB. Forget about all those fancy microbrews, only Schlitz or Old Style for a buck and a quarter each. It will be the classiest establishment on the NW side. Call it "Deplorables"

Old issues of National Geographics

Howdy neighbors- I have about 5 years worth of magazines that I want to get rid of. Wondering if this is something a school wants or any crafty folks. 2006-2010 are the approximate years. They also have the fake leather book box that they are stored in.
Anyone... Anyone... Bueller? If not then I will just take them to the Village Disco...

  • Hi there! I would be happy to take some of the National Geographics off your hands. I send care packages to troops and those magazines are requested and very well received. Let me know if I could grab some. Thanks!

Witness a hit and run at 3818 N. Kimball Avenue at 11:00am on 12/28/17?

Hello. Did anyone witness a car crash at 3818 N. Kimball Avenue at 11:00am on 12/28/17? My car was parked there and there was a hit and run. I obtained the police report and that report states that a witness saw a black Mercedes driven by older man hit two cars (including mine) and drive off. Security footage would also be great, of course.

  • Chris H Kimball Ave Homeowner

    Thank you very much for the response. I appreciate it. Does 11:00am sound right for the time of the crash?

  • MetroCyclist Food Crazy 9YR Inde Park/Albany Park Resident.

    Yes 11 am, that sounds about right.

Frozen pipes or water main frozen?

I woke up this morning to no water in my house. Called a plumber for frozen pipes. Since I have no water at all they said I’d have to work with the city. 311 said they’d send someone out - no timeframe given. Has anyone dealt with a similar issue? I’d like to get an idea of what to expect.

Possibly related - I saw water spewing out of a sewer grate around the corner from me (Montrose & Western) last night. Also reported this to 311.

Hit and run

Hi neighbors. Hit and run at 4135 n Drake. Dark 4 door suv was Nb drake but lost control, made a u turn and fled sb drake. At least 2 cars hit, 1 appears a total loss.

  • @bob, in that case, you incur the loss, depending on the amount of loss, you may be able to deduct something off of taxes.

    then your option is to find the responsible party and see if you can sue to recover losses incurred.

Plumbing ID help please

Hi, can anyone tell me what this is? It is a metal cover about four or five inches wide with a large nut and a small hole, that is connected to my bathroom's clean water supply. Thanks!

  • Phill Lucille, give me strength.

    Nice little tiles, they don't make those anymore.

  • Spam Alert, thanks, I have limited knowledge so assumed erroneously it was connected to the water supply. Philip and Johnson K, it does appear to be a drum trap. Thanks a lot everyone for the info and terminology!

Dog barking outside at 3:30am!

This dog has been barking for over an hour at 3:30am. I can’t believe that it wants to be outside in the cold. Who does that to their pet? I’m on the 4200 block of mozart. I can hear it all the way here. Poor thing. I wish the owners would let him in.

  • If it continues and/or you somehow figure out it could possibly be animal abuse or you just want a well-being check done, you can call Anti-Cruelty Society and someone will go check on the dog - you don't have to give them your name. I had to do it years ago and you can do it online on their website as well.

  • I don’t know if it is a common occurance because I just happen to wake up at 3:30am & could not go back to sleep. The barking was far and not my neighbors- maybe a block away. I just wanted to put the word out that if the actual neighbors...

    I don’t know if it is a common occurance because I just happen to wake up at 3:30am & could not go back to sleep. The barking was far and not my neighbors- maybe a block away. I just wanted to put the word out that if the actual neighbors of people with dogs would stand up for the poor animals when they recognize somethings are not right - it’s cold out and that Dog was letting its owner know it wanted to come inside. Plus- how could the actual neighbors sleep through that barking? It is freezing at night. I just wish I could know who it was to report them.

Christmas Tree Disposal

Do you know the proper way to throw out a real Christmas tree? Can it be put in an alley next to the garbage/recycling cans?

My neighbor asked me this question and I'm curious what the answer is.

  • Holly 15 year East Lakeview Resident.

    I live in the Dakota building and we had 5 trees thrown in the alley. They sat there for weeks. If you are gonna buy a tree be responsible and know how to dispose of it properly.

  • Hopefully everyone can recycle their tree this year. One spot in North Center:

    January 7 and 14, Sunday
    9: AM – 4: PM
