Shootings in Hermosa

Hi everyone,

I’ve just moved here, near Pulaski and Fullerton. I work a late second shift job and since the weathers been nice I leave my windows open. I come home, shower, make dinner.

Always always always around 3-4am I hear gunshots ring out in the near distance. Almost on a nightly basis. Is this common in the neighborhood? Will it get worse as the summer months start to come? I was eating lunch last Saturday and heard the shots...

Hi everyone,

I’ve just moved here, near Pulaski and Fullerton. I work a late second shift job and since the weathers been nice I leave my windows open. I come home, shower, make dinner.

Always always always around 3-4am I hear gunshots ring out in the near distance. Almost on a nightly basis. Is this common in the neighborhood? Will it get worse as the summer months start to come? I was eating lunch last Saturday and heard the shots ring out down the block from me, very close.

Police are pretty negligent in this district yeah? I keep reading how bad they are and I haven’t seen any crime reports for shootings around my area. Just curious, stuck in a year lease so I just want to make the best of it.

Thanks!

I'm located at the 2800 block of Lowell. There had been stuff going on, on our block that was never an issue before. But I do not see an increase in police presence. Last week my neighbors tires were slashed, there's noise of shootings on the weekends and yesterday some idiot set fire to some trash cans in our alley. One of the garbage cans caught fire very quick and spread to our garage. Luckily our neighor caught it and put it out before the fire department arrived. We do have damage to the corner of our garage but it could have been so much worse, since our car was parked in the garage. My husband and I are the new Block Captains and I will be speaking with our Alderman about this. I just hope people are aware of the changes going on and they are calling 911 and reporting things they see. We have to stand together as a community or it will get worse.

    Have you been in contact with the police district?

  • Yes, we filed a police report. Who mentioned there has been an increase in crime in the area.

In Home Daycare Hermosa/Logan/Humboldt

Hello! I am near Armitage and Pulaski and am looking for infant care at an in home daycare. Does anyone know of anything affordable nearby that they would recommend? Would love a Spanish speaking program but my significant other doesn’t speak much Spanish so having a care provider who can speak some English would be desirable for when he picks up/drops off.

  • I highly recommend Drops of Wisdom daycare. My son started there when he was 12 weeks and still goes after school (he's in kindergarten). They are near Diversey and Kostner and are bilingual.

    https://www.facebook.com/dropsofwisdomdaycare/

  • catlady for the love of cats, lets get along!

    on Pulaski south of Armitage before Cortland there is a home day care.

  • My kids go to Pillows Cove Learning Center near Palmer and Kostner. They each started there at 12 weeks. The women who run it are so wonderful, caring, and communicative. They are not Spanish speaking.

    They used to be called Caterpillar Cove, but it was too similar to another daycare in town so they had to change it. Here is their website under the old name: http://caterpillarcoveinc.com/

We need more people sending complaints, video, photos, observations. The more complaints the better the police can serve our community. Each complaint creates a "ticket" and the more tickets the police get the stronger they can act. It is important that we in the community provide the police department with complaints so that the police can influence the politicians. Videos are a good way to show the real problem.

So, please, when you hear loud music in Humboldt Park, pick up your phone from your pocket and video record the event. Send it as a complaint to 274637 (CRIMES). Can't be easier.

Also, call 911 to report what you see for instant police safety action.

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.
