    John Napier: You may have personal reasons to feel that the Washington administration made life more miserable, but I challenge you on your unsupported statements about Chicago crime. I took time to check your assertion. Washington was mayor from April 1983 to November 1987.
    Consider this: "In 1983, [under the Washington administration] the Chicago Police Department changed its procedures for keeping crime statistics after an internal audit showed that the department was under-reporting crime by as much as 40 percent in some cases...The number of reported crimes nationwide rose 4 percent last year [1985], but the increase in Chicago was less than 1 percent, law enforcement officials said Thursday...The upsurge in the national [crime] figure ended three consecutive years of declines...according to the Uniform Crime Report for 1985, issued by the FBI in Washington." [Chicago Tribune, April 26, 1986]

    In 1983-1987 the number of homicides in Chicago ranged from 666 to 744; in four of the five previous years the number was above 800; in the five following years, 1988-1992, the homicide rate rose precipitously from 660 to 943. Crimes on the rise in Chicago from 1982 were robberies (peaking in 1991) and motor vehicle thefts (peaking in 1986). (all figures from CPD annual reports).

    Another perspective from the DOJ Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics, violent crime NATIONALLY rose in all categories from 1983-1986. Uniform reporting data used by DOJ for this report was not available before 1985 and the CPD does not report an aggregate "violent crime" number. However, it is clear from DOJ stats available that that the number of murders in Chicago peaked in 1992, robberies in 1991, and aggravated assault in 1991. They did NOT peak under Harold Washington.

    So, John, I'm not doing any homework related to your other assumptions about budget cuts and service cuts until you can show me that you're doing something other than just speaking from hearsay.

Thinking of Moving to West Town

Hi, my best friend and I are considering an apartment in West Town and we wanted to know how safe the neighborhood is. We want to be somewhere that walking wouldn't be a problem day or night around Chicago and Damen Ave. Have there been any problems in this neighborhood?

  • gingervitis I like warm hugs.

    Exactly Keroleeen, I also suggested North of Lake (and Ashland, where the stop is) because of the green/pink line.

    There's also the blue line just north of Chicago, on Damen!

    Also city buses are great around here. Takes you to great areas within 10 minutes North on Damen and if you take the 66 Chicago eastbound takes you straight downtown.

  • I moved to the area about 5 years ago, from East Wicker Park, and have been extremely happy with what feels like living in an actual neighborhood. I know my neighbors! No question, it's still a city, but I feel quite safe walking around at odd night hours (and FWIW,...

    I moved to the area about 5 years ago, from East Wicker Park, and have been extremely happy with what feels like living in an actual neighborhood. I know my neighbors! No question, it's still a city, but I feel quite safe walking around at odd night hours (and FWIW, I am a woman and often by myself). The streets south of Chicago Ave are wide and have many trees - plus they somehow are amazingly quiet - even just a block away from Chicago!

    I love this neighborhood and plan to stay. Amazing coffee shops, cool indy stores, yoga studios, upscale restaurants, a wide variety of bars, and as many taco joints as you could ever need. There's even a circus school just off of Damen (south of Grand). The 66 Chicago bus runs all night and can take you to the blue, brown, and red line. And parking has always been pretty easy.

    Let's get a couple of laws straight:

    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

    Four years later, court rules city right to issue man $100 red-light ticket.

    More than four years of legal back-and-forth over a $100 traffic ticket came to an end Tuesday when a state appeals court found the City of Chicago was correct in citing a man who ran a red light in Lincoln Park in September 2010.

    Bohdan Gernaga ran a red light at the intersection of North and Halsted on Sept. 21, 2010. Two months later, he was issued another red light ticket at the same intersection, according to a state appellate court opinion.
