Attempted Break-In at Saywer and Belmont - Avondale

Earlier this week (we think Monday-Tuesday), someone attempted to break-in through our basement door. They were able to get past the first door, prying open the lock, but were not able to make it through the lock on the second door (pictured here).

They did break off the center part of the lock. Unfortunately, we didn't realize this happened until yesterday as we rarely go in and out of that door.

Earlier this week (we think Monday-Tuesday), someone attempted to break-in through our basement door. They were able to get past the first door, prying open the lock, but were not able to make it through the lock on the second door (pictured here).

They did break off the center part of the lock. Unfortunately, we didn't realize this happened until yesterday as we rarely go in and out of that door.

Strangely enough, on Wednesday night I was sitting in my car (not running, in park on the street) on a rather lengthy phone call and police came up to my car and asked what I was doing. Never seen them patrol this area before, wondering if anyone else has had break-ins and alerted CPD in the neighborhood.

Chicago Water Meter

Hey Everyone, we purchased our Single Family home a little less then a year ago & we do not have a water meter installed. Our current water bill is just under $500 (6 months) for 2 people. What is everyone's experience with this? Is it beneficial to get the meter installed?

    I moved in my house four years ago. I have two full baths, dishwasher and W&D. I live on a corner lot so when I water in the summer, it's a lot to water. A homeowner friend and my plumber told me as a single person living here, I must get the water meter. It's one of the first things I did when I moved here. The total bill comes to about $25 every two months. Your estimated bill could be based upon a user BLOCKS away not just two doors down. A water meter is a must.

He was in a tree on the south end of the block, giving the repeated yak yak laughing mating call --- (it's a bit early, for that, isn't it?) He then flew north down the alley toward tastee freez.

  • Pipeworks is coming soon. They haven't started building yet. There was a community meeting last year when they presented their design ideas. They will have food.

    Re: Rosie, it is confusing. The website gave me the impression they are open, taking online orders and it has hours posted. Looks very cheery. I hope they get a vegan sandwich or ones with that option. People will be asking for that. It's nice they have a veg. soup.

He tends to wander around the neighborhood aimlessly and laugh maniacally at things that are not there. I’m also convinced he was in my back yard today. But that’s another story in itself...

A 22-year-old man shot in the right leg was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, while a 19-year-old man also shot in the right leg was taken to Norwegian American Hospital.

Is this your cat?

Hi - walking the dog tonight 2/12 my husband came upon a really friendly grey cat around Drake and Schubert. No collar, both ears intact. I read a post from August with a description of a similar cat. Is this yours?

  • Dhe

    Thanks for posting! My heart did jump when I thought it was my cat. I believe someone befriended my cat and took her in.
    Please remind people that a tipped ear on a cat means they are spoken for 😀

  • A tipped ear only means it was trapped, spayed/neutered, vaccinated at the time (which may have since expired), likely microchipped and then released. It doesn't indicate if a cat is being cared for. Some may be tame, so it'd be great to help find a forever home.

Need good roofer

I need to find a capable and honest roofer! The majority of my roof is fine, but the roof over my foyer has a leak that I've paid to have fixed twice to no avail. I need an honest roofer who's not going to try to get me to get a whole new roof (which I can't afford right now), but who's also savvy enough to actually figure out this issue!
Anyone have any recommendations?
Thanks-

  • Melissa Stanley local realtor and business onwer

    Call Pablo 708-574-2207 he is great and very reasonable. Just remember that water seeks the lowest point so the leak could be coming from another part of the roof. I know for experience that finding a leak is not easy and sometime you just have to re-do the roof. Sorry but it is true.

Dibs are not only Unappreciated, but Also Illegal

Hey everyone, I know with the snow this year it's a real pain in the butt to dig your car out from the side of the road. But dibs are tacky, unhelpful, and make our beautiful neighborhood look like a dump. If everyone who dug out a spot left the spot, there would be a spot for everyone who needed one.

None of us own the streets in Chicago and none of us can claim ownership of a parking spot on these public ways. I don't even park on the street, but if I see dibs I unequivocally move them up onto the sidewalk in an unobtrusive area.

Be a good neighbor - don't place dibs.

  • Hopefully Wilmot Realty will make an offer on the liquor store and barbershop that they can't refuse (bangers have to get there fade somewhere ) . They seem to be developing every other corner in the area.

  • Waiting for someone to blame gentrification or the "outsider investment" Maldonado & Company discourage on this shooting.

    It's time for a twenty year plan for Humboldt Park's growth and development that doesn't include Maldonado, his real estate front groups, or the gang banger class that thinks it should be 1970 forever.

    It's pretty easy: remove the cancer of Maldonado & Company, then the gangs follow.
