  • The neighborhood would be even better served if all the liquor stores were closed.

    I appreciate the support

    To Agent AAW; I, too, would like some classical music, but the spots mentioned are all jazz venues, and things are rough enough for jazz as it is. These places need all the support they can get. For what it's worth, there is classical music to be had in Hyde Park and South Loop, not to mention the U of C series and Orchestra Hall (Symphony Center sticks in my craw.) They're all a short bus ride away.

  • I was just about to post about this story! I hope they catch this guy. I must say though how can any parent knowingly allow their child to take short cuts through the alley? That's almost always a recipe for disaster! Hope the young girl is ok.

Bronzeville is more than a name of a neighborhood

There are signs all throughout the area that it is coming to life, new restaurants, residential housing with hefty price tags, old historical buildings being restored with new purposes. There also seems to be an influx of a diversified population to Bronzeville, which begs me to question what and how do we want our community to be defined, this ain't Lincoln Park, nor is it Hyde Park, I personally do not want to be homogenized into everywhere else in America...

There are signs all throughout the area that it is coming to life, new restaurants, residential housing with hefty price tags, old historical buildings being restored with new purposes. There also seems to be an influx of a diversified population to Bronzeville, which begs me to question what and how do we want our community to be defined, this ain't Lincoln Park, nor is it Hyde Park, I personally do not want to be homogenized into everywhere else in America with the commercialization of where I live. That it is important that our History is preserved in the development of Bronzeville and this is paramount on so many levels. There is a great story here that we can all embrace and celebrate, this is a historic tourist destination. Think South! Mayor, this could mean Jobs, business opportunities, access to same Lakefront, this rich History just waiting to be told, this is where we need to start.

    Thanks Rick for the kind words, but I grew up in Chicago in the 30s and 40s, got tear gassed in Grant Park in '68, lived through McCarthy and the John Birch Society, and I want no part of the American brand of conservatism. I would say more, but it would be extremely impolite on my part. In any case, I accept the compliment, but I really must decline the invitation. Keep on truckin'.

    Alan, that is the kind of racist claptrap I would expect from Breitbart. i don't know what to expect from you. Not much, I'm afraid.

Street Lights Out AGAIN 3500-3700 King Drive

Alderman Burns, where are you on this? Once again as I write this (745pm on September 15), there are NO STREET LIGHTS on either side of the street between 3500 and 3700 blocks on King Drive, the third time this has happened in the last week and who knows how many times in the last year. What are YOU doing to address this issue which is a MAJOR safety issue? Time and time again we contact 311 and your office and the issue still occurs. Your office has done an inadequate job in handling this major concern...tell us, what are you doing to address this???

  • Marc of Bronzeville Homeowner, longtime Bronzeville resident

    Ald. Burns, your link mentions 37th to 44th...what about 35th to 37th? We are taxpayers too!

  • South Loop truth Poliical activist

    Alderman burns us totally non responsive especially now to the new north side of the ward. He is too busy trying to gain favor by voting 100% with mayor pay to play and telling everyone he is Obama's protege. He has to go.
