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.

Hit & Run of elderly Latino man Tue 11/13/17 approx 9p on W. Armitage near N. Central Park/Eastbound lane. CPR was performed in the field and in the Ambo, but I suspect man died since no resp or heartbeat noted, and he was lying as still as a statue on the ground w/no chest movement/respirations or consciousness. The driver got this man good.

The police took statements but no one saw what happened except after the collision they saw the driver stopped then take off. No driver or car discription was provider either. However, one witness said the man flew up and over loosing his shoes in the process.

It was sad and humbling watching someone die in front of you in the middle of the street.
Call CPD in Lo Squ or Hermosa if you have any details about this accident. I havene't seen the story in any social media or news outlet to date. Sad.

Found Dog (Logan Square, Milwaukee and Talmand)

Found a pup wandering the Chase/Bubbleland parking lot this morning at 10am. He’s about 50lbs, Black/white/grey with white paws. Seems like a shepherd/lab/hound mix. Had a collar but no name/contact.

Let’s find this little buddy his family!

  • Thenk you for taking him in! Any luck finding the owners?

  • let us know if you do find the owners. Those ears look very familar to a dog I see on Dickens/Mozart area.

  • TWP

    Thanks, Tim. We took him to Animal Control and they said he had a chip. Still no clear whether they've tracked down the owner, but I'll update when I hear more. Interesting that you've seen a dog so close to where we live.

  • heather, that's terrible. i'm off tomorrow and i'm going to try to speak with the mail delivery person -- chances are these folks are following right behind them.

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.

Suspicious Activity

Hi all,

I think there is a man casing the homes on the 2900 block of Wisner. He rang my doorbell on Tuesday evening, but had left my porch by the time I came to the door. I saw him pacing in front of my house and talking on his phone. Yesterday he rang again. When I answered the door, he asked me if we have Comcast cable and internet. When I answered “yes,” he said “Then I can’t sell you anything” and left. I didn’t take a good look at him. He was an Asian man with medium to heavy build. He was wearing light colored clothes.

  • Bonnie L. Braverman Logan Square Lover

    If you are him again call the police. Don't answer your door unless you know who is behind the closed door. Be very careful and keep us posted.

  • You can also request 'suspicious activity' on you block by calling the police station and police cars will make extra trips down your block. (If you re close to a school, that helps in the call.) Do call because remember 'if it doesn't feel right, than is is mostly likely NOT right.." We watch out for each other..

Stray cat problem

I have a stray cat that consistently sits on top of my car parked in my carport. Normally this wouldn't bother me but it's using my hood as a bathroom and a scratch pad. I intend to trap and bring to animal control unless someone has another suggestion.

  • PAWS has traps available. You can put a refundable deposit down and pick up the trap. You can then take the cat (in the trap) to Paws in Little Village for neutering or spaying. The cost is $40. That includes rabies shot, revolution flea and tick as well as a microchp and ear tipping.

  • There is a Facebook group called Chicago Community Cats..lots of very cat savvy on it who deal with strays and ferals.

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.

Trees damaged at former MegaMall teardown

Antunovich Associates were the developer here, Houston 7979 Parking is listed as the owner. Fences leaning on trees and falling all over, exposed roots on most of the trees on the lot along Linden, lots of garbage piling up and there are now some trees knocked over.

  • I agree it's a mess and the fence should be fixed before the whole place becomes a dump. Those maple trees are not part of the final design so don't get too attached to them.

Dog Owners Be Warned!

Please be aware there is rat poison in front of 2247 N Spaulding. This building is located on Spaulding between Belden and Palmer. The poison is in and around the planter boxes, right next to the sidewalk.

Please be careful and keep your dogs and kids away from this building/area.

We spent all night at the emergency animal hospital because a homeowner chose to be thoughtless and place poison in such a public space.

  • Hi Barbs, If you're responding to Mike’s comment - it’s not rat poison at that address.

  • If you see rat poison, instead of calling the city, just get a broom and sweep it up. It's not that difficult. Don't treat the 311 system like the front desk at your hotel. Just do it.

We tried to have Sparkie come live with us, but she’s afraid of our cats. We are trying to find Sparkie a new home with no dogs where she is the only cat – lizards, fish, and birds probably OK. She is a sweet girl who loves snuggling with humans of all sizes, she just doesn’t like roommates with tails. If you don’t think you can be her new person, please feel free to pass this post to anyone who you think might be interested.

    Thank you for being willing to help! Sometimes acclimating a cat to a new home can take a little time and needs to be done in a particular way when there are other resident cats. The new cat needs to be confined to a room where she can assess her new surroundings. Items, e.g., blankets, beds, between resident cats and new cat need to be introduced to the others. After some time and the new cat feels comfortable in "her" room, they can be allowed to see each other from a distance. New cat can be introduced to other parts of the house while the residents are confined, etc. It can be a slower than desired process but it can work out. I'm sharing in the hopes you weren't aware like may people and can then re-try the introduction. Thank you again for your kind-heartedness!

    Carla is right, it can often take a ton of patience in bringing in a new animal. I just adopted 2 kittens about 5 weeks ago and it hasn't been easy for me mainly because I, like other humans want things to happen faster than fur creatures actually need. I'm definitely learning patience. I did exactly as Carla says above. It took 10 days to get Sammy kitten to come out from under a dresser in his room. About another week before he was able to leave that room. At least another week before he found his favorite spots to sleep in the house and finally he is playing with the other cats...but, he still runs from me! I've wanted to give up a few dozen times but the two kittens are bonded and at least Sammy is now comfortable with his fur brothers. But gosh, it does take some time. Cats DO adjust in due time. Hoping you give Sparkie more time? Its so hard to find new homes considering there are so so many animals out there needing homes. Best of luck to you!

Lincoln Towing Grabs a Car!

The Lincoln Park Bandits (Towing) in action on a Sunday AM at the Dollar Store next to The Cozy Diner on Milwaukee/California.

After watching the tow truck driver, yank the front axle of this sedan from the parking space, dragging this car so he could hook it up and take it, I decided to record the rest of his 25 second rip off..You can see in the video that the driver saw me taking pictures of his grab on the way out...he waved at me. I waved back with a finger salute.

Beware where you park, that's the bottom line here.

Dog Abuse (Dalmatian) by Logan and Western Underpass

African American man with sunglasses and fatigues pulling Dalmatian in a Radio Flyer wagon! He was also carrying a bunch of signs. He was pulling wagon and the dog fell out - poor pup was obviously petrified of him. He picked dog up and then forcefully threw her back in wagon and beat her. I stopped car in middle of western and Logan and told him to stop. He got extremely irate and threatening to me. I had to move car. Please keep an eye out for this pup. Broke my heart that I had to leave her. This is NOT OKAY! What can we do???

    I am in no way suggesting or condoning the people steal his dog.

    It would be better if the dog COULD sit on the sidewalk, but he can't; he's all cramped up in a red Radio Flyer wagon. Either way, the guy is somewhat volatile, and the dog does not appear to be comfortable in the situations the guy puts him in. Add on to that that many people have stated he sometimes hits the dog, and something has to be done to help both of them, which is what I said the last time. So don't jump jump all over me.
