Lakeview groups want to keep Pride Parade in neighborhood

That big hole at the intersection of Lincoln, Ashland and Belmont avenues in Lakeview will be the site of a big Whole Foods.

    Lakeview groups want to keep Pride Parade in neighborhood
    Neighborhood groups met with police and city officials last week to discuss the future of the city's annual Pride Parade, and while community leaders believe improvements can be made next year, they said the overall tone of the meeting was positive.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com

  • I don't think the parade should be as long as it is (over 2 hours). Cut down the time. The partying afterward seems to take place along Halsted; right? Maybe the bars can be restricted from opening early on that day, maybe open at 5-6 pm just on that day.

  • I've only been here for a 1-1/2 years, but as I recall, there's always been "after hours" muggings and beatings along Halsted/Broadway/Wrigleyville. I had a friend who lived on Cornelia and she would tell me how rowdy that area was. So I don't know if this is anything new. Maybe this type of crime is become more prevalent and more frequent.

    Anybody?
