Car break in

My daughter’s car was broken into on the 1800 of Belle Plaine in the middle of the night, as was my neighbor’s truck. Both cars had alarms. We don’t see anything missint unless there was change in the car and the neighbor was only missing change as well. Just wanted to give a heads up. Anyone have suggestions for cheap auto glass replacement. Someone suggested Fernando’s but it looks like theymay be closed today.

  • Sorry about this. Try Safelite - they come to you for repair.

  • Sorry that happened! I had Accurate Glass Shop replace a windshield a couple years ago. They were by far the cheapest and I haven't had any problems with it.

  • gloria gloria

    Thanks! They hit at least 4 cars. Found a place that replaced the window for $60.

Found this beautiful cat with no chip or tag!

Gorgeous tabby that followed me to my home and walked inside. I fed him some milk and chicken but he didn’t eat. I’m not sure what to do.

  • Take him to a vets office and have him scanned for a chip. Vets office will tell you what to do from there.

  • Thank you! He found his home :)

  • FYI please don't give cats milk to drink, they are lactose intolerant. Give them water instead.

Tree trimming on public land...

We have a tree out front that is growing into our home's front. We would like to prune/trim it but are unsure if we are allowed.

Does anybody know if trimming or pruning a tree on the public side of the sidewalk is "legal"?

    Scott Concertman - Is THAT the reason the city trees look so bad? I've seen that whole 'lion tale' effect for several years now - didn't know it had an official name, I just called it a high and tight - all the lower branches stripped off and just a few sprouts left at the very top. Trees aren't hair - if you take away all the greenery, not only does it weaken the tree's architecture, it starves them. I wondered at the logic of it, now I know...there isn't any. I guess we just have to resolve watching the trees we have left die off slowly because of poor husbandry. Which way to the tree museum?

    (BTW, don't mound up soil/mulch around the base of your trees - that's another way to strangle them to a slow death!)

  • The city owned tree in front of my house needed a few branches cut back, since they were resting on my roof. I just used a pole trimmer and trimmed away. Never thought about calling the city. That was several years ago and it still continues to thrive.

North Park Elementary School Celebrates as Chicago High School Acceptance Letters Roll In

North Park Elementary School (NPES), a small, independent school in Chicago’s North Center neighborhood, is pleased to congratulate its 2018 graduating class of eighth graders on their acceptance to the high schools of their choice. Of the school’s 17 eight graders, 13 were accepted to one of Chicago Public School’s selective enrollment high schools, highly-competitive schools that accept only 1 in 5 applicants.

North Park Elementary School (NPES), a small, independent school in Chicago’s North Center neighborhood, is pleased to congratulate its 2018 graduating class of eighth graders on their acceptance to the high schools of their choice. Of the school’s 17 eight graders, 13 were accepted to one of Chicago Public School’s selective enrollment high schools, highly-competitive schools that accept only 1 in 5 applicants. Additionally, two NPES eighth graders were accepted to prestigious magnet programs, Double Honors and Instrumental Music, at Lincoln Park High School. And two NPES eighth graders were accepted to Beacon Academy, an independent school in Evanston that matches a challenging IB curriculum with methods of Montessori.

NPES has gained a reputation over the years for its challenging curriculum and supportive, close-knit school community, both of which school administrators and parents credit for NPES’ long-running track record of placing 100% of its students into the high schools of their choice.

“We are so proud of the ways that we prepare our kids for their lives after NPES. The richness and rigor of our instructional curriculum sets a critical foundation, leading our kids to impressive results with the Chicago testing,” said Dr. Randy Needlman, Head of School at North Park Elementary. “Simultaneously, NPES provides a safe, caring environment in which students can learn to communicate effectively, understand their place as members of a global community, and ultimately become leaders in their high schools and beyond. “

NPES has approximately 240 students, preschool through eighth grade, and a dedicated faculty who develop strong relationships with their students throughout their tenures at the school.

"The entire school community is celebrating our 8th graders as if they were their own children – that’s the kind of closeness we have at NPES,” Needlman added.

  • Neighborhood Dad 27-year resident of North Center/St Bens/Lincol...

    Involved parents/guardians are a huge asset. To each student; to the school; to the community; etc.

    I’m not sure what a “fancy” education is. It’s elementary school. Teach them to read, write, and do math. Some fine and performing arts electives. A language. And encourage/shape them into good kids who will become good adults.

  • We looked at a couple of private schools that I thought were very “fancy” with beautiful buildings and grounds and a wide variety of offerings — and a price tag to match! NPES wasn’t one of these. That’s all I meant. I don’t think any of that “fanciness” is necessary either to have a good education and produce an amazing kid.

Isn't this animal abuse...Uptown (Sheridan near Montrose) yesterday?

I saw a man in a wheelchair being pulled by a German Shepherd.

The dog was really struggling trying to pull plus he was way off to the side and was totally out of balance to pull.

He, also, had put an fairly large orange plastic safety cone around the dog's neck I guess his goal was to balance it on the dog's head for visibility but the cone had slipped off and was hanging from the dog's neck.

Sure...

Sure looked like animal abuse to me but I'm not sure of the rules regarding service dogs, if in fact this poor dog was a "service dog."

If I see him again should I report it - to the Humane Society or ???

  • Becky - would you have a moment to contact the Anti-Cruelty Society? They have field service investigators. I've never worked with them but here is an excerpt from the ACS website .... "if you see any of the above signs or observe unusual or suspicious behavior involving an animal, contact our state approved investigators at 312-645-8090 or email abuse@anticruelty.org". This could be a good resource. Thank you for caring about this dog's well being.

  • Neighborly1~ Values community.

    This really needs to reported. Please call and report info and give description and location.

Litter

Is anyone else as annoyed by the amount of litter they see outside? When I walk around our neighborhood, I see countless bottles, cans, cups, wrappers, straws, etc on the sidewalk and the street. This is also true for our parks and schools. I've even found several beer bottles at Coonley over the past few weeks. I try to do my part and pick up 3-4 pieces of trash anytime I am out for a walk with my kids or to/from the L. I just can't understand how rude you have to be to throw garbage on the ground.

  • Neighborhood Dad 27-year resident of North Center/St Bens/Lincol...

    K - London did that in the 80's to combat the IRA. I doubt Chicago does it for bombs. Although I'm sure they use it as a reason. It's simply cost cutting. Fewer cans, theroretically fewer staff to empty and maintain them. Seems shortsighted but it won't change.

  • on the south side the trash can is just open you car window and throw it out.

Furniture donation?

In an effort to make our spare bedroom less of a hoarder's cave, we are looking to get rid of some furniture we've outgrown (mostly baby's room furniture). We have a glider chair, changing table, and a few other pieces that are clean and in usable condition. Anybody know a good place to donate where these could go to new moms or families who would appreciate them?

  • Just a heads up, I contacted Humble Design Chicago and they are no longer accepting furniture donations.

  • Thanks for the update, Katie! I reached out to my contact at Humble Design Chicago who confirmed the warehouse is pretty full of big furniture items but they remain in need of the following household goods, if anyone is looking to unload:

    -Kitchen- any small appliances (microwaves, toasters, crock pots), dishes, pots/pans, baking sheets, cutting boards, utensils, placemats, etc.
    -Bathroom- towels, trinkets, shower curtains
    -Knick Knacks- vases, candles, baskets, book ends, etc.
    -Linen- sheets, comforters, bed skirts

    Can confirm, heard them while watching TV, looked out my window facing that intersection and saw the fireworks in the air. No problems.

    Deceptive Practice in North Center
    These guys manipulated my 74 year old mother into giving them cash for a repair to the exterior in the alley, costing her $150. The larger build man even entered the house. My mother was alone at the time. They claimed to be workers from the project next door.

  • Yes these pictures Barbara C sent to me directly. She did say that she wasn't sure if the vehicle was an actual business or if a license plate was stolen, but they are two pieces of supporting evidence and she confirmed that these two people are the same people that did the same thing to her.

  • Thinkin' Square Active Neighbor Certified

    Has anyone contacted the #? I googled it and it appears more than a dozen or so folks report it as a spam phone number, so it’s likely a fake pamphlet to disguise their crime. That should actually add some additional charges (conspiracy to commit fraud) to their rap if they get busted.

Hello Neighbors. On Monday, April 2nd at the NorthCenter Chamber of Commerce - 4054 N. Lincoln, Alderman Pawar has arranged for a meeting with the owner of the property at 4101-4105 N. Lincoln (Currency exchange, convenience mart and vacant laundromat) to discuss the proposed redevelopment plans. My understanding is that the current owner's son would like to build out some of the property, re-do the façade and add more residential units above the commercial properties. I am not certain as to whether the currency exchange or mini-mart would remain as tenants. The proposed changes sound promising, but I have concerns about the scope of the project and whether it can be accomplished, as well as the finished product, based on what I've seen as a neighboring resident for the last 10 years. I think this is valuable opportunity to learn more about the project and raise any questions/issues with the developer and alderman, so please feel free to attend the meeting.

Gas fireplace (insert) repair?

20 year old insert has finally stopped functioning. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

  • becky, I have a gas/wood burning fireplace/insert I'd let go for cheap if interested.

    never used. purchased for a rehab job that never happened.

  • We used FireFixer for a fireplace check-up and full cleaning to get rid of an awful fumes smell on our gas ventless unit. I believe they do repairs, too. It was totally painless and their scheduling/process was easy!

  • Andrew Linc Sq Lifer

    dont risk it. get a new one. American Fireplace on Western is one idea.

Plaster removal

Looking for vendors to remove plaster ceilings. Anyone have a recommendation?

  • El Rosario Demolition...708-268-8062...plaster removal (and also pulls all of the nails.)

  • John North Center homeowner, vintage home restorer

    Hey lin, that is exactly what we're doing and also why. The sound is already a massive problem as is with the plaster ceiling. We eventually need to remove all the plaster to do electric and plumbing work and will replace it all with drywall but the ceiling is going first. My perception is replacing plaster with plaster is cost prohibitive. It would cost orders of magnitude more.
