    @jaye els - "No go zones" as you termed them are not unique in Chicago. Certain towers at the Robert Taylor Homes, Cabrini Green and even a couple of buildings on Lake Park were virtually gang run for long periods of time. When I was at the U of C in their Emergency Department (back in the day when they were a Level 1 Trauma Center) we had to do ride-alongs with the CFD paramedics as part of the paramedic certification process. There were certain buildings to which we were called where it was essential to wait for CPD back up (in force).

    The point I am making is that gang activity and gang control of certain areas is not new - just as high homicide numbers are not new. The difference between 2015 and 1975 or 1985 is that the incidents were confined to specific geographic regions and all the chest thumping and hand wringing taking place on EB now is that some of this stuff is taking place in communities such as Rogers Park, Albany Park and Mayfair.

    Likewise, Rio now cares about cleaning up the favelas because they will be hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Would anyone know of a Patio brick layer in Irving Park to level older bricks into a patio in Irving Park? Can you recommend anyone?

  • I would check out Aztec Stone Design. They did a great job on our patio and front walk. They have done jobs in Irving Park that you may be able to go look at. Edgar is the owner and his prices are very reasonable. They are also on yelp. Good luck!
