How do security deposits work in Chicago? Need to get old one back before starting new lease?

If I am leaving a place, when can I get my security deposit back? I'd like to use my security deposit from my old place (the one i'm in now) and put it towards the security deposit on the new place because I don't have a lot of spare funds sitting around. Is it possible to get the security deposit back before the move out date on the old place in order to make this happen?

Congress Pizzeria - Closed

I went here a few times when I first moved to Logan Square over 25 years ago- never thought it was that good- however, they stayed in business a long time. Wonder if the landowner sold the spot for what appears to be development .

New Condos? Just what we need, right?

  • 5 years from now the entire intersection of Mil/Western/Armitage is going to be all high rise TOD. At that point this building will fade into the background.... Don't be shocked when we see a 15 story luxury building in the Walgreen's property. Or the vacant MB Bank parking lot. Or at the vacant CVS parking lot. or in the (insert name) vacant parking lot.

    I forgot to mention the seemingly unlimited supply of $1 million+ single family home buyers in the neighborhood.

  • Michael McDonough Resident of BelCragin

    When l grew up in the neighborhood, the northwest corner of Armitage and Western had the Oak Theatre Margies was always where it remains to this day ,and a little restaurant called Snacktime was on the sw corner and Top Notch was on the ne corner.The site that the most recent construction on Milwaukee and Armitage used to have Purdy,s Tv shop

3450 W Diversey - huge fight, gangbangers, squatters in building

Hi, I have not heard much about this troubled building lately, but last night there was a fight of some sort resulting in blood on the sidewalk, a broken window for one of our neighbors (a 100 year old window) and an arrest. I will speak with the police tonight at 10pm when the officer is on duty. I was wondering if anyone had any details. Please share. Thank you

  • Kapel, there is nothing illegal about being in a gang, in fact it's actually a constitutional right found under the freedom of expression clause, what's illegal is taking part in criminal activities which most gang members do!!! This is why there's really no way to desolve/ abolish gangs in of themselves!

If you live in Darwin's attendance boundary you are eligible to vote.

Local School Council (LSC) elections for Darwin Elementary, and all CPS Elementary schools, are this Wednesday, April 18th from 6 AM to 7 PM.

If you live in Darwin's attendance boundary you are eligible to vote. I'm including an image of Darwin's boundary but you can also confirm your local school's boundary using the 2018 LSC Election site (http://cps.edu/ScriptLibrary/Map-LSCElections2018/index.html). Type in your address to find the school boundary you are within or type in "Darwin" to see Darwin's enrollment boundary.

All you have to do to vote is go to your neighborhood school between 6 AM through 7 PM with an ID confirming your address within the boundary. You'll be given a ballot and allowed to vote for no more than 5 candidates among both parent and community representatives. Voting for more than 5 candidates will spoil your vote!

I have served as a parent representative at Darwin for two years, where my daughter attends. During my tenure I have asked critical questions about the school's operation and the principal's policies because these decision affect the education of all the children in the school - including my daughter's.

I'd like to ask for your suport for another two years. It's a lot to ask people to take 20-30 minutes out of their day and vote in an election that seems removed from their lives but what happens in your local school really matters to the neighborhood: excellent schools that parents want to attend change the neighborhood for the better.

I've been privileged to work with the following other candidates and wholeheartedly endorse voting for them as well.

For Parent Representative: Jeffrey Young (myself), Erin Rensink, Dawn Herrera Helphand

For Community Representative: Kate Carolan and Amanda Mcbee.

Thank you.

    Contrary to the above, I've read that community members need 2 forms of ID with at least one that confirms residence in the attendance boundary. Acceptable forms of ID include:

    Driver's License

    Voter Registration Card
    MediPlan/Medicaid Card
    IDPA Card
    Permanent Resident Card
    Matricula Consular

    Hi Mookie, welcome to Palmer Square! I can suggest a couple of options:
    1) HAPS- If you are living on Palmer Square and own your property, there is a small group called Homeowners of Palmer Square (HAPS). Its bylaws are fairly restrictive, so it limited to owners of property within the 3000-3200 blocks of Palmer. Addresses on Kedzie and Humboldt on Palmer Square itself are also part of the group. I can connect you if this is an interest.
    2) Logan Square Preservation-- this group is the larger Logan Square group that advises on issues in the neighborhood, Palmer Square included. They do have a separate zoning committee.

    There may be other groups as well that others will suggest.

  • Thanks Cori! I am a homeowner but do not reside on the square. Maybe I can look into the second option? Thank you!

  • Logan Square Preservation meets at 7pm, the third thursday of every month at the Norwegian Lutheran Minnekirken Church at 2614 N Kedzie, on the square. The April meeting is this thursday night and guests are welcome. Zoning is always a hot topic and new development plans are popping up all over. So if you are free thursday, stop by. You can also visit the website, www.logansquarepreservation.org

Pharmacy on Fullerton next to Farrel's gym

Any idea what the pharmacy is between Farrell's gym on Fullerton at Kedzie, and Fishman's?

It's almost totally bare, never anyone inside. Every time I walk past I wonder how they use such a high traffic space for a faux store front.

  • i wish someone would re-develop that corner, would love to see the one story office & retail buildings along the boulevard get built up to have housing above and hold the corners better. Except for maybe the Parson's building, that one does an job because it's so active and has a nice massing of mature trees assisting

  • they have a website alphacarerx.com for that store but all the images are stock internet photos. it looks like a mail order pharmacy so why the storefront? open 9-5?

Lost keys with library tag

Hi, I lost part of my keychain last weekend either near Sunnyside/California or near California/Diversey. It's just a ring with a black Honda key and a house key on it, with a Chicago Public Library card tag as well. Just thought I'd check and see if anyone picked it up - it was a week ago, but thought it was still worth it to check.

  • Did you check with the library system to see if anyone turned them in...I think if I found them, that is what I would do...

  • Do you have a valid phone number or email address on file with the library. They will usually try to contact you if keys are turned in to them, but sometimes the contact information is outdated.

  • A.S. a.s.

    Unfortunately, I already called a few nearby libraries last week when it happened - should've mentioned that. They didn't have anything in the system about it being turned in. Bummer.

Moving to LS - Parking Advice

Considering moving from Bucktown to Logan Square near Kedzie and Fullerton -- just wondering if anyone has insight in to the parking situation in this area.
From our apartment tour, it seemed like Kedzie had free parking but it seemed very busy/we had to park a few blocks away.
Is this typical? Do y'all have to drive around for a while to look for parking spots? Any tips? Anyone renting out a spot close by?
Also, curious about neighborhood safety - thoughts?
Thanks!

    I bought a condo on Kedzie near Wrightwood a couple of years ago and love the neighborhood! (It was a completely random decision, I moved from Old Town and was very unfamiliar with the west side.) It's quiet but close to restaurants and nightlife, and I've never felt unsafe. I walk and take the public transportation for the most part. A good friends live a mile south on Sawyer and i always walk to/from her place, even late at night. You just have to be smart about side streets and such at night.

    I have a car which basically just lives on the street, I only keep it because I own it. I do qualify for a zone 100 buffer permit, but about half of the side streets west of Kedzie aren't zoned...I've never had a problem and I've had a couple of temporary roommates that had cars and no permit. I think a little more South of you has a lot of street options as well, just get off the main streets and you shouldn't have a problem. Street sweeping is the biggest pain I've encountered.

Anyone want some dirt?

I have a bit of dirt to get rid of, from potted plants and a small veggie garden that died. Maybe ~16 cubic feet, by my estimate. Any suggestions for what I should do with it? I figured I would take it to a city park and put it around the trees, but I don't know if that would look suspicious or be illegal. If anyone on Everyblock wants it, please direct message me.

  • Watch the movie "The Great Escape." Put dirt in sacks hidden in the legs of your pants. When you walk around Humboldt Park, pull the strings of the sack and let the dirt pour around your shoes. Kick it around and don't let the guards see you.

  • All dogs should be walked on a parkway, not the owners front yard. Very simple to understand one side is private property and one side is public property. Being adamant that a dog doesn't understand which is which is a total cop-out and you are being a selfish dog owner who cares nothing of your neighbors space, your dogs habits or your own entitled nature. Grow up, d3!

Is this a fair price??

Hi all. I need your collective advice. I am tearing down a 1 car garage&replacing w/a 20x20 double car. All new foundation etc. just got a quote of 16K. Is that a fair price? I paid 9K for the same thing just 4 yrs ago. Did I get a super deal then&is this a “normal”price?
Thanks!

  • House-Frau Homemaker, mom, animal lover

    I guess most contractors are void of customer service skills. When things are flush it’s kindof a “screw you, I don’t need you”attitude. I get things go up, I really do but 9K to 17K?! That is almost 100%(Apples-to-Apples on materials&work&company)What they MUST remember is when things aren’t so great, all those folks they blew off are gone&as the saying goes “What goes up, must come down”.

  • @Blonde in Logan square - I'd like to know who you used as well and same question, actual brick or cinderblock?

    Question to everyone else too - has the city required drywalling the interiors?

    Our apartment is only the first floor of the frame bungalow. It is in the Hermosa Park area. Near Fullerton. It’s a 1000sq. Ft. 2 bedroom with 9 foot ceilings.We are in process of rehabbing so won’t be for rent prob until July or August. We intend to rent for one year and then move there. So upgrades are nice. But in a farmhouse style. White cabinets , maple natural floors , great fixtures. Butcherblock countertops ( real from Chicago Butcherblock)
    Not your typical apt. Original vintage living area and dining with built in. Full basement with laundry. New back porch and front porch . And cute yard . Across from park.Parking pad in back. Will build garage later. I will send photos when finished. Rent will be in 1300-1500$ range. If anyone is interested let me know.

  • There's a current EB thread for Jefferson Park bemoaning the deplorable conditions at the Metra/Blue Line/CTA hub in Jeff Pk on Milwaukee Ave. All requests for action are met with deflection or silence (in the case of the Alderman who's adding 100's of apartments within 3 blocks of it) and get no action. Could be a fun romp to give that some coverage. https://goo.gl/sS3mji

Fires Started Last Night

Some time last night someone started a fire in my recycling bin, which caused my fence to partially burn down. My neighbor saw the fire around 4:30 AM and called the fire department.

When the fire department arrived, they told me that there was another fire at the other end of the block (I'm on the 3400 block of Parker) and another nearby on another block (didn't catch the location).

Basically, it looks like someone started multiple fires... for reasons?

I'm wondering if anyone saw anything unusual last night around Parker/Kimball/Diversey/ Milwaukee?

  • Sorry it happened to you. Lets hope its not a repeat of what happened years ago when people decided to set garages on fire. Do your neighbors have security cameras installed on their garages? Check with them and if they do, hopefully you can get a picture and take it down to the police station. Am surprised I didn't hear the trucks and I live right on Drake.

  • Man, that stinks and I'm so sorry this happened to you.
    No one should have to worry about arson, but it seems to be trending re. recycling bin fires. We don't put our recycling out until the morning of scheduled pickup, but not everyone has that option.

Beat 1421 Meeting Tonight

I really wanted to attend tonight’s community meeting for Beat 1421 but unfortunately can’t make it. If anyone is going I would love to hear details about what is discussed - specifically crime and recent activity in the area - as well as what they are doing to resolve the issues. There’s been quite a few posts here lately (feels like more than usual) about shootings/gun shots around Cortland/Mozart/Fairfield and other streets in our area so I’d like to know if those concerns are discussed and what they are doing to stop or deter this activity. Sad I can’t make it to express my concerns directly. I appreciate any info in advance!

  • JSK, you can always go into the station and talk to officers in the CAPS office at another time.

  • In the same boat as you, looking forward to hearing feedback from the meeting.

  • Agreed - also interested if it was discussed.

What is going on at Albany/Whipple '606' entrance?

Heavy trucks are speeding down Whipple with this; no excuse as they can barely get down the street...

    I'm pretty sure it was for the Cubs game home opener.

    Otherwise I'd say they were searching for more of Hillary's emails. ; ) lol ; )
