Apartment Building Cited Several Times Before Porch Collapse Injured Man

The building at 6250-56 N. Albany Ave. failed multiple city inspections over the years and was issued violations for failing to maintain its exterior porch that leads directly to the front doors of apartments.

Building owner Nasrullah Khan, of SNK-Farms LLC, was reached by phone Thursday but then quickly ended the call without commenting. Khan also owns the building at the southwest corner of Lunt and Western avenues, which had its digital billboard removed after complaints from the city.

    With so many dilapidated apartment buildings in area why would someone call on this one in particular? I can think of 10 buildings in walking distance from my house that are in serious disrepair. Since I have reported building issues in the past, I am familiar with the process...

    With so many dilapidated apartment buildings in area why would someone call on this one in particular? I can think of 10 buildings in walking distance from my house that are in serious disrepair. Since I have reported building issues in the past, I am familiar with the process and it is extremely time consuming if you see it through. As for the alderman office having access to inspections, they're on the city's website. Should the alderman know of a building that is unsafe, I say YES, IT'S HER JOB!

  • dj long time RP home owner

    My point exactly, JR, is that if you can see 10 then there are many more buildings in disrepair in the city and you expect the alderman to track them all? It's easy to blame "authority" figures and if it's posted is he/she to follow each case? And what responsibility do you have if you monitor this website? Any? None? Precisely. Was she even in office when these issues first arose? How about laying blame where it belongs - the city building dept? They have been negligent for years.

    You're right lets correct you

    Let's get a couple of laws straight:

    Bicyclists are permitted to ride two abreast down the road in one lane.. WRONG

    9-52-050 – Bicyclists must ride single file, exceptions; bicyclists may ride two abreast when riding two abreast does NOT impede the normal and reasonable movement of traffic.

    Bicyclists are entitled to the full use of a lane. And again WRONG

    9-52-040(c) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (e) of this section and bicyclist upon the roadway at less then the normal speed of traffic at the time and place shall ride as near as the practicable and safe to the right hand side of the roadway

Ravenswood shooting: 'He had so many friends, and that was his downfall'

...friend and the friend's girlfriend drove a red Jeep to a Dunkin' Donuts at 6249 N. Western Ave., prosecutors said...

This article has 5 other Chicago locations (Show)

Police said Hassell, 21, was shot once in the head at a close range about 6:35 p.m. Sunday in the 2200 block of West Winnemac Avenue. Officers responded to a call of a person shot and found Hassell in an alley on the block.

Hassell, of the 5700 block of North Kenmore Avenue in Edgewater, was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

Smith took his friend's phone and called his mother, asking her to pick him up at Lawrence and Ashland avenues, and the friend drove him there, prosecutors said. 

Police interviewed the friend and his girlfriend, and Smith, of the 7800 block of South Greenwood Avenue, turned himself in to the police on Wednesday, prosecutors said.

Smith is on probation in an unlawful use of a weapon case, in which he was arrested about 8:55 p.m. on May 2, 2012, in the 1600 block of West Howard Street, according to prosecutors and police records.
