Police Warn of Boystown Robberies Ahead of Pride Parade

The robberies have happened in a several block radius: From Roscoe to Belmont and Racine to Halsted--all in the early morning hours.

    Police Warn of Boystown Robberies Ahead of Pride Parade
    A warning of strong-arm robberies has been issued in Chicago's Boystown neighborhood just days before the annual Pride Parade, an event that draws tens-of-thousands of people
    http://www.nbcchicago.com

  • That makes no sense.

    Are we to assume all these robberies (that are ongoing now) are going to subside AFTER the parade?

    I don't think so.

    Lakeview is a target regardless

    trying to connect these crimes to the parade....what's the angle?

  • I would guess the angle is that more people will be coming into the Lakeview neighborhood from outlying areas and may have their guard down, not thinking to worry about robbers or pickpockets. And along with crowds who are relaxed and having a good time come the robbers and no-good-nicks looking for an easy mark.

    Former Riverview Park Worker Builds Miniature Working Model Of 'The Chutes'
    ROSCOE VILLAGE - Once upon a time, the magical kingdom of Riverview enchanted all who passed through its gates. Fifty years after it was razed, the defunct North Side amusement park, which sprawled across nearly 75 acres off Western Avenue, continues to cast a spell over Chicagoans of a certain age, who speak of Riverview with a fondness that borders on reverence.

This reminded us of some other great parking lot makeovers in Chicago. There’s Gino’s East pizzeria, 2801 N. Lincoln, which transforms an awkward triangular parking lot into outdoor seating during the warm months. Heritage Bieks and Coffee. Image: Google Street View

And when Lou Malnati’s pizzeria recently replaced the Golden Angel diner at 4340 N. Lincoln last year, they replaced the 13-spot parking lot with outdoor seating and additional greenery. (What is it about Lincoln Avenue and pizzerias that encourages parking/seating swaps?)

    Eyes on the Street: Swapping Parking for Customer Seating Is Good Business
    More and more, merchants are beginning to understand that their bottom line depends less on the number of vehicles they can park than the number of customers they can accommodate. As such, we're seeing a positive trend towards restaurant, coffee shop, and bar owners owners choosing up asphalt for cars to provide seating for patrons.

    He caught a break last week when a Florida man refused to press armed robbery charges against him after a Boystown hold-up. But Derrick Robie apparently didn't learn any lessons. Robie, 19, was arrested again in Boystown Sunday morning, now charged with theft for allegedly taking money from a beggar's cup at Halsted and Roscoe.

  • The alleged crime is no surprise in Lakeview. However, all tourist, and I guess residents as well, should be aware that Chicago is a big city, the crime stats are all over your smart phone, and TV. So use some common sense when wandering around any neighborhood, alone or not. Especially in area like Halsted that seems to have skyrocketing crime stats. 4:40 in the morning, alone, Really?
