City Busts 6 Massage Parlors For Prostitution In ‘Operation Hot Towel’

BACP officials said 11 parlors were issued cease-and-desist orders, and 10 were shut down, including Seven Heavens Spa, at 1026 N. Ashland Av., which allegedly reopened after the city ordered it closed.

    City Busts 6 Massage Parlors For Prostitution In 'Operation Hot Towel'
    CHICAGO (CBS) - Chicago police and city officials have been cracking down on massage parlors running afoul of city regulations, and have busted six business for prostitution. The Chicago Police Department and the city's Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection called the effort "Operation Hot Towel," because when undercover cops investigating prostitution were offered sex, they would ask for a hot towel, and other officers would swoop in to make arrests.

Always Wanted To Live In A Church? These 30 Are The Answer To Your Prayers

Swing by 1056-1100 N. Ashland Ave. and observe all that's left of the five-story Art Deco church that stood there for decades before it was sold for $1.58 million last year.

This article has 11 other Chicago locations (Show)

At 2900 W. Shakespeare Ave. in Palmer Square, two- and three-bedroom condos with 18-foot-tall ceilings and huge steel trusses inhabit Sanctuary on the Square.

With nary a minute to spare, St. Boniface Church, 1358 W. Chestnut St., was saved from demolition in September. After sitting vacant for 27 years, the dilapidated century-old building is set to become a music school and residential building.

The church, 2900 W. Logan Blvd., closed one year ago after it lost Nuestra Señora de las Américas, which covered half the bills before it vacated the church space. But preservationists said it was an important piece of Chicago history, designed by Elmer C. Jensen in 1906.

The future of this 105-year-old church at 1650 W. 17th St. remains in contention, as parishioners fight the sale of the St. Adalbert Roman Catholic Church building to the Chicago Academy of Music Conservatory.

Also under fire is the $1.25 million sale of the "last great synagogue" last year, when Cedar Street bought Agudas Achim North Shore Synagogue, 5029 N. Kenmore Ave.

The church requires significant work after suffering major water damaged and a boiler that will soon need to be replaced. Revenue from the apartments would allow the congregation to continue worshipping at Grace Church, 3325 W. Wrightwood Ave.

Developer John Liu joked last year that he'd made a "very bad decision" in ruining his "very peaceful life" when he bought Shiloh Baptist Church, 4840 S. Dorchester Ave.

Liu is also the brains behind the latest attempt to redevelop St. Stephen's Church, 5640 S. Blackstone Ave., which he purchased for $650,000 in late 2015.

It's been a long two years since neighbors expected The Belfry condos to be complete. The former St. John Church and School, 913-925 N. Hoyne Ave., was set to become 19 condo units by summer 2015. Instead, the project has experienced unforeseen delays.

There hadn't been much news on the space in the years following, until 2215 W. North Ave. was put on the market in March. Listed for $2.19 million, the Romanesque church built in 1892 is a city landmark, and its front facade cannot be altered. 

    Always Wanted To Live In A Church? These 30 Are The Answer To Your Prayers
    LAKEVIEW - For some, going to church is like coming home. And for others, that's true in an even more literal sense. With congregations around the world in decline, empty churches are being put to new use in scores of ways.

    Want to make a big statement to your art-loving mom this Mother's Day?
