Car break-in with no theft

Sometime last night or early this morning, our car was broken into and the glove box ransacked, but nothing appears to have been taken. We could have sworn we locked the doors, but they were all unlocked. Apparently, the same thing happened to a neighbor. Anyone else! This is near Glenwood and Winnemac.

Graffiti/tagging?

I found some graffiti or possible tagging on the fence of our building today--not too legible in the dark but I'll try again tomorrow. Anyone else a target of this around Hollywood and Glenwood?

    Uptown and Edgewater both have performing arts theater, fine dining, casual dining, neighborhood activities, families, public parks, community gathering spaces, and the arts. Both neighborhoods are pretty much the same in having decent recreational options. And there are perfectly good places to live in both neighborhoods. Apparently some think there's a big difference between Uptown and Edgewater. I think they both are nice neighborhoods with attractive amenities and the only real difference is their names. With respect to visitation rights Sarah, you are free to visit and enjoy Rogers Park any time you wish. We are an open, welcoming and inclusive neighborhood.

    Second phase of Metra's Ravenswood station construction plans unveiled - Chicago News Globe
    Nearly three years after Metra opened its outbound Ravenswood station, the transit agency unveiled its 30-month construction plan for the station's inbound track. Metra originally announced improvements to the Ravenswood station and UP-North bridges in 2010. At the time, officials gave an anticipated completion date of 2018 for work on both sides of the track.

    Two Chicago aldermen want to limit release of condo owners' personal information
    Two Chicago aldermen who represent most of downtown want to reverse a state law that makes condo owners' personal information more widely available to their fellow association members. A proposal introduced this week by Aldermen Brian Hopkins and Brendan Reilly would allow association boards to limit the release of owners' names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and weighted votes in Chicago condo buildings and complexes.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com

    being able to contact neighbors in an emergency - like flooding from above - is important. Not every condo has a manager on site - and not every condo has a contact person at night. This ordinance is important and will be appreciated when an emergency arises. There could be an exception for those condos with 24 hour on site contact -like manager or doorman.

  • Some smaller condo associations automatically distribute a list of telephone numbers to all residents for that purpose. This is different and was supposedly quietly stuck into another proposed Condominium Act change. I understand that several state senators and representatives are already starting to work on repealing that one part of the change.

Yesterday's death at the Bryn Mawr Red Line stop?

Hi, neighbors -- I'm just curious if any of you know more details about the man who was hit by the train and died yesterday. The Sun Times names him as "52-year-old James Dillen" -- but that's it. https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/red-purple-line-trains-shut-down-person-removed-from-tracks-at-bryn-mawr/ Does anyone know any more about the circumstances, or about Mr. Dillen?

Thanks,
Michael

    52-year-old man fatally struck by CTA train at Bryn Mawr

    I just feel like the word troubled has negative connotations attatched to it. We never say a person who suffers from a physical illness is troubled. Troubled is usually attatched to people with mental issues not physical.you know people who have behavioral issues are often labeled as troubled. Behavioral issues are generally due to mental health issues. Its a controversial subject.

    One of the reasons Moody's beer garden became so popular was that it was all-ages: you could bring the family and eat outside. Also, the bar indoors was very dark--and, before anti-smoking ordinances were enacted--smoky as hell. So the outdoors became a refuge from smokers too--people still smoked outside, but they could wave the smoke away. (And you & they could see each other and move to a different table).

    I never knew any other Moody's but the one on B'way. I know it's not the end of an era, but it's always sad when a person who established something beloved passes away. May his memory be for a blessing,

    Depends on what part of Edgewater. East of B'way, parking is difficult because of so many apt. bldgs with so few garage spaces. West has more single-family homes and 2-flats with garages, so on-street parking's easier to find. I live less than 1/4 mi. from a Red Line station, and it has almost never taken me more than 45 minutes, even in rush hour, to get as far south as Jackson St. (Track problems & the like can happen on any line). Ubers & Lyfts are plentiful; and many of the city's taxi drivers live here--easy to flag down a cab on B'way.

    I grew up in NYC, and to get from Queens to Brooklyn on the subway, you had to go through Manhattan. (My husband's commute to college--no dorms at CUNY schools--was 2.5 hrs. each way every day). The NYC subway system is deteriorating due to budget cuts. I lived in Seattle, and drove to law school in south Tacoma-->1 hr. each way). Be glad you don't live in DuPage or Kane County and commute into the Loop. And don't even ask about Los Angeles or the Miami-W. Palm I-95 corridor.

    We Chicagoans don't realize how lucky we are when it comes to commuting from a residential 'hood to downtown.

    I don't think this is entirely true. While we are all responsible for our individual actions all things being equal, we aren't making those decisions in a vacuum.

    When government policies are in effect that encourages certain behaviors or does not adequately punish certain behavior, then I think the government policies are also at fault in some proportional value.

    IE. If violent offenders don't believe they will be held accountable for their actions (either low risk of being caught or low level of sanctions), there is less disincentive to take certain actions. Thus the potential benefits could outweigh the potential risks even in a rational equation.

    Put another way... if robbing a passerby of their paycheck will net me $1000 and there is a 5% risk of being caight or adequately punished, a subset of the population will take that risk.

    If there is a 50% chance of being caught (or shot in self defense) and a 100% chance of being incarcerated if caught, even a hardened criminal might not take the action.

    Just my humble opinion...

  • Mute Truth is not determined by majority vote

    Yes i get it but a certain type of person who only refrains from commiting a crime like murder in the first place because of laws has alot more to do with things outside of our leaders control.

Empty commercial spaces 1200-1400 Devon Ave

I moved just south of Devon Ave off N Wayne Ave a couple of years ago and have noticed that many of the commercial spaces on Devon Ave in my area remain vacant in both older and newer constructed buildings, leading the drag to have a certain gloominess. Does anyone know why this is? Are there just one or two landlords responsible that hold these spaces?

  • SocioloGina Researcher in my 4th Yr in Chicago

    Laura_M, I can see why you would think that. But actually the whole Arcade building, which is a historical property and has housed PP for years, is coming down now and will be replaced by some condos, etc. So that housed my dentist, a coffee shop, and other businesses as well.

    39,000 homicides: Retracing 60 years of murder in Chicago
    The spike in violent crime that has plagued Chicago since 2016 has even more gravity when viewed in comparison with six decades of homicides in Chicago. Since 1957, the city has had homicide totals of 700 or more nearly half the time, 27 of 60 years, and has been lower than 500 a third of the time, 19 of 60 years.

  • Mute Truth is not determined by majority vote

    Yea i seem to remember when i lived at wilson and seeley i saw the tax bill for the building and it said lakeview. Having neighborhoods inside of neighborhoods is a bit confusing to me. Such as ravenswood which is a part of lincoln square etc. Why do we need all these neighborhood labels?

  • Jersey Joe Recent Transplant

    I like the discussion style here. We start down one topic and end up with a completely different one. How about we agree that Andersonville is no more than a state of mind? And that this criminal selected a neighborhood with a poor clearance rate. Like the bank robber, Willy Sutton said: I could rob a bank in Andersonville with one hand because no one will catch me. That, and there are a lot of good coffee shops around.

Any idea when the water will be back on at Granville Beach?

Went to get my mail around noon and there was a literal waterfall coming out of the ceiling in the lobby. The picture doesn't show the true niagra falls of water that was flowing.

  • It was freezing and we bought this window seal kit from Lowe’s, which did wonders...and a space heater. Most of the cold came through the Ac vents and a lot came in through the windows, I think cause they’re old.

  • Yeah we covered up all our air conditioning vents with thick plastic. I just carry a space heater at this point from room to room. I will definitely try the window seal kit! And my water is back on but it is brown so I will let it run for awhile. Thank you for the great tips! xLaura
