Wood statues stolen from Roscoe Village

Hello neighbors,

I had 3 painted wood carvings stolen from in front of my house near Cornelia and Damen in Roscoe Village last night. They were chained securely, but someone cut the chain or unscrewed the eye locking them. If anyone happened to see anything, or sees some wood carvings lying around somewhere, please contact me. They are about 3 feet, 4 feel, and 6.5 feet tall.

I have reported this to the police, but am posting just in case someone might have seen something suspicious. Like a pick up truck riding down the street with a totem pole. I have photos if anyone has questions.

Thank you,
bill carroll

Your questions about Chicago Pride Fest and the Chicago Pride Parade, answered

Addison Street at Halsted Street

Roscoe Street at Halsted Street

Wellington Avenue at Broadway

Cornelia Avenue at Halsted Street

Oakdale Avenue at Broadway

On parade day, between road closures and traffic, your best bet is to hoof it a little. Try Clark and Belmont or Clark and Addison, or, if you’re coming from the lake, Broadway and Belmont.

One more key item to mind: Beware of limited street-crossings. Halsted and Broadway are closed near the beginning of and during the parade, so don’t get caught on the wrong side of the road.

Montrose Avenue at Broadway

Irving Park Road at Broadway

Grace Street at Halsted Street

During parade weekend, the main Pride event (besides the parade) will be the women-centered Pride celebration Back Lot Bash, which runs from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday and offers a post-parade party from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday. Both will be in the parking lot behind Cheetah Gym (5248 N. Clark St.).

Censorship on EveryBlock

I would like to make a formal complaint against censorship here on Everyblock. I made a post referencing a recent crime on Red Line Belmont El Platform - a man was apparently publicly urinating and woman told him to stop, he threatened to kill her, she took his photo then tried to walk away when he apparently attacked her from behind and tried to murder her by throwing her down on the electrical train tracks.

Read full message…

I would like to make a formal complaint against censorship here on Everyblock. I made a post referencing a recent crime on Red Line Belmont El Platform - a man was apparently publicly urinating and woman told him to stop, he threatened to kill her, she took his photo then tried to walk away when he apparently attacked her from behind and tried to murder her by throwing her down on the electrical train tracks. At the time of my post the dangerous criminal was still at large and I attempted to alert others and circulate his photo so that he could be apprehended. The good news is that this dangerous criminal was caught and is now being prosecuted for attempted murder.

Why was my post deleted/censored?

My post did not contain any racial epithets, incitement to violence or suggestions of illegal acts - instead it was just to note a bad crime and encourage regular citizens to help catch a dangerous criminal.

I am increasingly concerned by the amount of censorship on Everyblock and elsewhere in the social media world which is increasingly being dominated by a small group of social media monopolists who only allow one point of view and censor Conservatives, anyone that supports President Trump, anyone that wants our immigration laws or laws against attempted murder enforced.

C'mon!

  • how is that woman who was attacked doing?

    her courage should be commended.

    its ridiculous that we allow behavior to go unchecked. Criminals are emboldened.

  • future alderman future alderman

    remember those kids from arizona who caused a stink last(?) year about their horrible chicago experience because the guy engaged with someone who was obviously a nut? same thing. we all know you shouldn't pee on an el platform. more than a few guys have died from it.

A guide to Saturday's World Naked Bike Ride, which skirts Chicago law a little bit

Past viewing points have included parts of North Michigan Avenue, and stretches Belmont Avenue and North Broadway in Lakeview as well as arterial roads in Wicker Park.

    A guide to Saturday's World Naked Bike Ride, which skirts Chicago law a little bit
    Check your brakes, adjust your seat and take off your clothes. That's right, the annual World Naked Bike Ride is returning to Chicago this weekend, making us wonder: How do they get away with that? After all, riders who bare it all could be in violation of Chicago law.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com

  • what's the point of this stupidity on display?

  • This happened once at rush hour on the Congress/Eisenhower Expy blocking all lanes going west, but I don't recall if it was the naked bike ride or Critical Mass members riding naked. Whichever ... how classless.. They should have all been locked up and fined.

New restaurant?

Anyone know what’s going in to the former Dive Bar space on Halsted just south of Cornelia? Looks like they’re painting the outside in preparation for something.

  • Do we need another restaurant in the neighborhood.

  • I'm curious too, that was supposed to be the reopening of mEAT, but those signs have been down for over a year now. And, yes, we certainly need as much restaurant choice in this neighborhood as possilbe, anything is better than another closed building.

  • Li, if you think you know what the neighborhood needs, by all means....

    go ahead and take the risk and open up your own business.

    or, sit on the sidelines and take e-potshots at those who have the courage, conviction, stamina and work ethic to try.
