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.

  • JeannyB Old Apartment renovator, architect,

    Unfortunately I don't live in the 32nd Ward although I have to be in that area quite often.I will try to contact Scott Waguespak and CDOT to look into this..There's already 2 stoplights on double staged corners of Wabansia and Western but either a stop sign and/or better lighting is a necessity. Right now for a motorist it's pretty much of a guessing game (especially during rush hour) and it's treacherous for a pedestrian just crossing Bloomingdale on the East side of Western. Here's hoping?

  • In this article described about the safety about the traffic.this traffic safety informations are very useful for all people.i must follow this instructions.thanks a lot for sharing this post.i hope you include more post. http://cadvilpos.com/

    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.

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.

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

Do Not Block Sidewalk

1807 N. Paulina,
Please do not block the public sidewalk. Today a client had to drag her son's wheelchair back towards Northshore Pediatric Therapy to cross to the other side of the street because your car was blocking the sidewalk. And you have giant rocks around the parkspace so she couldn't even "off road" it. If your car is too big to fit into your garage then your car is just plain too big.
Please remember that many Chicagoans are not able bodied and cannot squeeze around your vehicle to use the public sidewalks. We did not phone the police today, but will do so in the future.

  • That isn't too far from Tasty Treats World Headquarters. The house next door has the same problem. What kind of architect does that? To save the cost of a beam? Keep calling it in. If he keeps this up the cop who gets the call may remember and escalate or make it a point to drive down your block and ticket this guy when on patrol. As someone who once had to attend a wheelchair bound person something like this would mean war.

    Thank you neighbors. Good advice.

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

Flasher (and worse) on North Avenue between Hoyne and Leavitt

Tonight at about 10pm while walking on the southside of North Ave just west of Hoyne, a man in a black Acura sedan stopped in an alley as he approached North avenue. As I walked in front of his car, I noticed that he had exposed himself (and was engaged in an activity I can't say here). I continued walking down North. 20 feet or so later, he pulls up next to me on North, before speeding away. Gross.

    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.
