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...

    . 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.

  • Rob Lejman Chicago born and raised. North side.

    Thank you

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.

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
