Looking for Garage Parking Rental

Hi Neighbors!

I'm looking for a garage spot to rent in Albany Park near Spaulding and Wilson. Does anyone have, or know of someone who has, a spot available?

Thanks!

  • Hi Emily - Just sent you an email via this site (hopefully you'll get it?).

i haven't thought out the details, because i know we are all from different neighborhoods...but calling it chicago-northsiders or something comes to mind. there are already a couple of NWside sub-reddits, but they are vastly underused. we could at least just start one and see what happens.

your thoughts?

Eugene Field(house) River Dumping

Hi Albany Park Neighbors,
On more than one occasion I have seen someone dump plastic bags with animal parts into the bridge passing over the river here. They simply get out of their GMC walk to the river bridge and throw in a bag of animal parts. This also has happened at Central Park. Has anyone else witnessed this and has anyone got a license plate number? I'm hoping to take information to the Alderman. Thanks for your help!

  • What they're doing is gross & wrong on many levels (what type of animal parts and obtained how, etc...?). Hope you can collect enough info to have them caught and stopped.

  • future alderman future alderman

    i would call 311 today and the alderman tomorrow

  • lin ravenswood downsizer

    Call 911. That is a crime to dump, anything, in the river.

I was walking my dog south on Troy and standing at the intersection of Belle Plaine and Troy when I heard what I thought was fireworks up the street. Soon after a sedan (I think dark green) came speeding down the street and flew through the 4 way intersection. A man was in the front seat and a young child in the back. A few seconds later a black sedan came speeding down the through the intersection in hot pursuit of the first car. A young (teenage I am estimating) boy was standing up in the back with this torso out of the sunroof shooting at the car ahead of them. I witnessed about 6+ shots fired. Both cars turned onto Irving Park from Troy. I called the police and gave them the pertinent details I was able to witness. I wanted to post this to encourage others to be safe and on alert for gun related activity in the neighborhood. I am upset I was not able to get the license plate.

Cook County Towing/Avondale Collision - Open Meeting at City Hall

Neighbors - we've all complained now we must insist the City follow through! Please attend an open meeting at City Hall, 121 N LaSalle, room 805 on Thurs, Oct 5, 10 AM.

The purpose of this meeting is to address the numerous complaints of reckless driving, aggressive behavior, noise at all hours of the day and night, misuse of the lot at Keeler & Milwaukee in accordance with zoning, and overall "junkyard" state of the property occupied by these businesses.

Please attend. Please bring your neighbors. Please call the alderman's office, and more importantly 911 when you see issues happening in real time.

We deserve respectful neighbors in our community and these businesses are infringing on our safety.

  • To address the concerns and take steps towards being better neighbors, AC was advised that they needed to operate inside the scope of their business license.

    To address the concerns and take steps towards being better neighbors, AC was advised that they needed to operate inside the scope of their business license. Their working hours should not go past 6 p.m. They should provide their contract with CCT for review. They are only permitted 15 (possibly 16) spaces on their Milwaukee-facing lot. They should not load out or receive any cars on the Keeler side. Drops on the Milwaukee side must be on the property (street drops not allowed). Signage was required (and subsequently displayed) pertaining to driving cautiously and being quiet. Vendors are to use the Milwaukee-side entrance only to conduct business.

    Per the owner of Avondale Collision, they used to but do not currently have a contract with Cook County Towing.

    I call all this non-progress because the last meeting with Chicago Business Affairs and Consumer Protection it was deemed that AC provided all documentation and signage to maintain their business and continue to operate at Milwaukee and Keeler, and since then we've seen the number of cars in the lot continue to grow again, CCT continue to drop off cars after 6pm + AC being open beyond 6pm. The only "win" I've witnessed is that the CCT are less likely to idle next to my home, but, from the comments here and recent comments on Facebook, it sounds like they have just found new spots to and neighbors to disturb. Please keep calling 911 to report reckless driving, please keep telling the Aldermans this is unacceptable behavior from a neighbor.

  • No contract with CCT...what a joke, I’m going to snap a photo every chance I see a cct truck dropping a car off

    There's been a lot of freakishness forced down our throats by the idiocracy in recent times, but amid it all you may still remember this whopper: "My culture is a very dominant culture, and it's imposing and it's causing problems. If you don't do something about it, you're going to have taco trucks on every corner."

Dear Families and Community Members,

I hope you are enjoying your summer and have taken time to rest and relax.

To help prevent the large fireworks displays that have happened the past few years, we will be locking the gates to the parking lot and back entrance on July 3 and 4, however families may still access the playground through the playground entrance. In addition to these measures, we will have security and maintenance staff posted at our Kedvale location to ensure trucks are not pulling up with large amounts of fireworks.

Disney II does not sanction fireworks displays in our field or play lot, so we ask that you call 911 if you see any fireworks displays being set up.

Sincerely,
Kathleen Speth
Principal, Disney II Magnet School

  • Yes, I will miss the drunk people setting off high-explosives and watching girls urinate in the doorways of the school.

  • They also have a 25 year tradition of leaving an absolute mess in the park: spent fireworks, empty beer bottles, have eaten food and plenty of general garbage. I won't miss the fireworks display at all, and either will my dog. Go someplace where it is done safely and legally.

Gun control activism is risk to bottom line, gun maker says

The maker of Smith & Wesson firearms said gun control activism poses a risk to its business, according to a company filing.

American Outdoor Brand Corp., which on Wednesday reported a 25 percent decline in fiscal fourth-quarter revenue compared with last year, listed the "actions of social activists" as a risk factor in its annual report.

Shares fell as much as 12 percent Thursday in New York, the most intraday in six months, and were down 4.6% to $12.62 at 12:13 p.m. Rival gunmaker Sturm Ruger & Co. fell 4.8 percent to $57.45.

    Cigarettes. Drunken driving. Next: Guns?
    One of the greatest public health triumphs of the last century impressively still gains momentum: Millions of Americans have quit smoking - and more will follow. Smoking among adults hit a record low in 2017 - to about 14 percent from nearly 16 percent a year earlier.

how much did you pay for your wall-mounted AC?

we're looking into getting one of those wall-mounted mitsubishi AC units for the balmy top level of our bungalow. does anyone else have one and, if so, how much did you pay for it? we got a quote yesterday of $5000 to install it, which seemed rather high. getting more estimates, but curious what your experience is. thanks!

  • Waveland_5400 Retired and loving it!

    $5000? It would be far cheaper to have a nice Polish contractor poke a hole in your wall for a through the wall air conditioner. It takes up no window space. We did this when we put our small dormer on the bungalow 12 years ago and never regretted it. They are a bit more expensive than the window units but nothing compared to what you're getting ready to put down.
