I live in the building where the young man was shot in front of yesterday and it was absolutely terrifying. Just a few weeks ago my in-laws, who live in the corner garden apartment, had a break-in. And after talking to some of the neighbors break-ins, car keying, and other incidents have been on the rise.

Already I've heard racist commentaries and finger-pointing that just adds to the paranoia. No matter what color the shooter/suspect was, it shouldn't define an entire people.

This incident could also be a part of a gang-related attempt to take over the corner. Whatever the circumstance, I'm hoping that there are others that want to take a positive, community approach to making our area safer.

I love this area. I love it's diversity and the fact that it's generally been a wonderful place to raise my daughter.

I don't have the answers on how to put a complete end to this rise in crime in our neighborhood. But I would love to connect with any neighbors willing to come together to keep our community safe.

Public notices posted at Ravenswood & Peterson?

Driving by this morning, I noticed public notices posted at Ravenswood & Peterson across the street from Peterson Plaza both on Ravenswood and on Peterson.

Anyone know what they say or are about?

  • Most likely this is due to impending construction on the new Metra stop at Peterson. Last I heard, they were planning to break ground this spring.
