At Least One Pedestrian Dead, Others Injured After 5335 Sheridan Accident

Reports are still a bit unclear, but witnesses say a red Ford was trying to get around a bus heading North at 5335 North Sheridan avenue around 11:12 a.m. this morning. Somehow the red vehicle did not make it around the bus and instead plowed into  two-three parked cars at a high rate of speed […]

    It's one lane. The problem is the faint legacy striping leads what used to be the right lane at an angle directly (pretty much merging) into the parking lane. If you drive following that striping, you'll do exactly what this car did.

  • Nope, Sheridan gradually squeezes down to one lane + parking before Balmoral (heading north) ... this is a bit dangerous because people are driving dangerously.

Officers found a man, thought to be in his 50s, unresponsive on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound to the head in the 1500 block of West 72nd Street about 12:45 a.m., according to police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Lewis, of the 4700 block of North Hermitage Avenue, was taken to Presence Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, where he was pronounced dead at 3:58 p.m., authorities said.

About 1:15 a.m., a 47-year-old man got into an argument with a mother and son in the 6200 block of South Rockwell Street, left the apartment, then returned with a gun and shot both people in the chest, police said.

The shooting happened in the 5200 block of West Quincy Street, police said.

Two 16-year-old boys were standing on the sidewalk in the 2400 block of West 63rd Street when a white van drove past and someone inside fired shots, police said. Both teens were shot in the leg and taken in “stable” condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

    Mark:

    Ask RAGE in Englewood. Ask Valerie Leonard and Mark Carter in North Lawndale if blacks are being displaced?

    I see you did not mention Bronzeville. The line of re gentrification is already at 35th Street. Three buildings directly associated with the Black Metropolis Historic District located north of 35th Street are currently being developed by white folks with the cooperation of black elected officials. The historic landmark buildings are the former 2nd Ward Democratic Headquarters building 3433 South Indiana, Unity Hall 3140 South Indiana and the Defender building located at 2400 South Michigan.

    In addition, some of the elitist leadership in the GAP organization conspired with and enabled De LaSalle High School, to destabilize and then demolish the historic Pickford Theater building, formerly located on the north east corner of 35th & Michigan Avenue.

    if you did not know the historical value of the Pickford Theater, that is where Mary Pickford and Oscar Miceaux produced movie pictures at the turn of the 20th century.

    Pickford Theater Building - Landmarks Illinois
    www.landmarks.org/ten_most...
    Landmarks Preservation Council of Illinois
    3459 S. Michigan Ave., ... Completed in 1912 as a movie theater with accompanying office retail space, it is one of the rare survivors of the ... the showcase for early silent movie dramas produced by pioneering black filmmaker Oscar Micheaux.

    As African Americans in Chicago, If you don't know and embrace your history, you might be destined to repeat it!

    From a Destination Marketing perspective, Bronzeville history is so strong and culturally significant that we should not compare our historic neighborhood to Wicker Park or Lincoln Park. Neither one of those upscale elitist neighborhoods on the north side of Chicago has the 100 documented history of Bronzeville.

    Just another reason why black people in Chicago will be celebrating the Great Migration Centennial in 2016!

    Virtually,
