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?

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.

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.

Hey neighbors I just wanted to clue everyone in to what happened on Thursday night/ Friday morning on Kenmore Avenue between Foster and Berwyn. There was an attempted and fortunately unsuccessful drive by sometime between 9-11 pm on our block with multiple shots fired. The suspect who was a member of the Latin Kings was apprehended in the same location the following morning between 8-9 am as he returned to try to finish the job. He was armed at the time of the arrest. I wanted to post about it as a reminder to keep your head on a swivel and that we as neighbors have to look out for eachother.
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.
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.

I recently signed a short-term sublet here for the summer after trying to do as much research as I could and surveying the area when I went to visit the unit. However, a building nearby, the Darlington Hotel, is apparently a shelter/drug trade haven? For some reason, given the non-activity during the day and run-down nature of the building, I assumed it was just abandoned.
Any info or tips I should keep in mind as a petite single woman, aside from the usual requisite city vigilance? Or is it/will it be extremely bad (given summer is on the horizon) to the point I should look for another subletter?

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...

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?

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
