Shooting around 10:50pm Monday

We heard gun fire near Kimball and Montrose. I believe someone was shot on the 4400 block of N. Bernard. Does anyone have any details about this incident?

  • Chicago Tribune on June 19, 2018
    Most recently, a 30-year-old man was shot in the torso while sitting in a vehicle with two friends around 10:45 p.m. in the 3400 block of West Montrose Avenue in the Albany Park neighborhood on the Northwest Side, police said. The shooter had approached on foot.

Moving Sale

I'm downsizing from a single-family home to an apartment and have a ton to sell. I tried the "letgo" app, that was a disaster. I couldn't participate in the Bowmanville Sidewalk Sale so now I'm reaching out on EveryBlock to see if anyone is interested in a ton of garden tools, chairs, hose/reel, etc. I also have a great Pro-Form treadmill, CycleOps wind trainer, queen futon and wood unfinished frame, shelving/cabinet, sofa table, etc. Text me if interested in finding out more and I'll be happy to share photos either here or in text. I may resort to a garage sale. 773-405-4210. I live in Bowmanville.

  • Catherine, my plants are outside in garden so likely not what you’re looking for and unfortunately, no recliner.

  • Catherine NO!

    Ok, thanks.

Internet Service Providers

Moving to Albany Park from Rogers Park next week and need to get internet setup. What Internet Service Providers do you use? I currently have RCN and am sad that it is not available in my new area. I've already checked with AT&T and they can only provide 10MBPS. I need at least 50MBPS. Thank you.

  • We’ve had xfinity for several years w/o problems - except you do have to threaten to cancel every year or two

  • See if AT&T fiber is available at your new location. It's $80 a month, no taxes or fees. It's internet only but then you can get subsribe to Hulu, Netflix, YouTube TV and Amazon Prime TV etc. Won't need dish or cable.

    I have fiber and normally get 800mbps upload and download speeds, makes other providers feel like 4800 baud modem from 1980's.

Outstanding Nanny Available

My nanny of 2 years will be available starting in June. I am the mother of 5 and a former educator with high standards. Our nanny is wonderful. She also helps with light housekeeping. Her primary language is Spanish, but she communicates well using Google Translate. My youngest son is bilingual because of his fantastic nanny. In the 2 years she has worked for me she missed only 2 days of work do to illness. She is extremely reliable, trust worthy, punctual, loving and patient. I am happy to introduce her to a new family.

Help? Anyone know this car?

There was a '85 Toyota 4 Runner with MI plates and a for sale sign in the window parked on Francisco just south of Wilson. Even though it was there for a few days we procrastinated and did not call. The phone number on the sign had a (312) area code. We would love to talk with the owner if it is still for sale.

Found cat Albany Park 5/12/18

Hi everyone. I found a cat near 3008 w Ainslie next to Ronan Park. No microchip or collar but seems friendly and not a stray. If anyone recognizes this cat please let me know so I can return to owners!

  • Hanna Hanna.

    I actually saw that ad about Luna but it’s a boy cat 😢. Poor thing though, so they never ended up finding Luna?

  • Sher Jeff Park resident since 72'

    I forgot to mention...did you try looking or maybe posting to this site?

Man Heard Screaming This Morning

Hi all. At the corner of Ainslie and Drake.

Was up at around 4:40 this morning to get ready for a trip out of town. Had the windows wide open for the fresh air when I heard a car drive by followed by a man shouting, screaming, or something. He sounded like he was on the south side of Ainslie, just below my window, headed east. He went on for a while, I listened until he eventually got too far...

Hi all. At the corner of Ainslie and Drake.

Was up at around 4:40 this morning to get ready for a trip out of town. Had the windows wide open for the fresh air when I heard a car drive by followed by a man shouting, screaming, or something. He sounded like he was on the south side of Ainslie, just below my window, headed east. He went on for a while, I listened until he eventually got too far away to hear anymore.

Not sure if he was saying anything specifically. I thought he might have been saying "poder," but my roommate got it recorded on her sleep talking app, and the playback was pretty clear and more incoherent than I thought as it was happening. This roommate also swears that she heard sirens afterwards, so maybe the guy was reported or received some help?

Did anyone else hear this? It was loud enough that I definitely would have been woken up had I been asleep to start with. It was very strange considering the neighborhood is usually very quiet until 7 or so. Does anyone know what happened?

  • I have heard a man screaming and walking like this during the warmer months many times. The hot spots seem to be the streets surrounding Gross Park to California ave. When my windows are open it is terrifying.

River Park Improvements

Vera O., Park Mgr. told us last week that
reconstruction of the long demolished
Tennis Courts (6) with lights at River Park.. will begin by 5/3..!
And, the other improvements adjacent like a Soccer Field should be soon followed.
Remember. The $70 million Deep Tunnel one mile dig under Foster Ave.
at the River has been due to finish April
2018...but appears to be quite late.

But, good for the Tennis and Soccer areas. New ,clean sports areas with active players keep the troublemakers
further away.

  • Is the pool still there? I just glimpsed at the construction when I was driving down Francisco yesterday. I couldn't see it, I guess it's covered. I'm hoping for an indoor Olympic sized pool that only I can use :).

  • LincolnSquarePoppy Lincoln Square Resident

    Pool is still there but won't be open until CPS is done for the school year - need the high school lifeguards to keep us all safe!
