    Frank Lloyd Wright's designs are a hot market again
    When writer Emily Novick and her husband, Steve Goldstein, then a pediatrics professor and physician in chief at Comer Children's Hospital, moved to Chicago in 2004 from the East Coast, they scoured the housing market in Kenwood and Hyde Park, looking for a home that would offer enough space to entertain.

Weekends at 53rd and Drexel

Anyone know what the deal is with the hundreds of high school-aged kids gathering here, mostly on Saturday nights? Just recently moved to this corner and have already twice been woken up by 8 or so police vehicles posted here, breaking up a massive party at the MAC property on the west side of the street. Tens and tens--probably over 150--people come out of this one building and flood the street in no apparent hurry to move along.

All in all, it's been fine with earplugs, but I feel bad for the families and individuals having to deal with this in their building. Just curious if anyone knows: is this a summer thing? Is it business as usual?

  • I've lived on 52nd Street for 14 years and have never seen the activity at 52nd and Drexel that's been there lately. This is also the same area where a 19-year-old young man was shot in the shoulder on July 14.

    I've lived on 52nd Street for 14 years and have never seen the activity at 52nd and Drexel that's been there lately. This is also the same area where a 19-year-old young man was shot in the shoulder on July 14.

    I came home around 8 on Thursday night and there were a group of young men hanging around a building. Hanging around is not a crime, but they just seemed to be up to no good. On Saturday, I drove by about 10:30 p.m.and there must have been 30+ young men and women gathered there. It's not good.

    I didn't call the police when I got home, but thought about it. It seems other neighbors have and I will from here on out. They need to know that this is not ok in an area that has been relatively safe and quiet for years.

    If you know what building they're coming out of, it might help to call the management company and share the info so other neighbors can call as well.

    I'm so glad it isn't just me who noticed this!

  • If you believe someone is breaking any law or ordinance you should call 911 and the UCPD immediately.
    If you think the tenants of a MAC owned building are acting inappropriately you should call their office asap.

  • Always call the police when you see that many kids. I do all the time. If you ignore it, the problem grows.
    Call Mac also, they are notorious for renting to people like that!
