Trucks on California

Is California a truck route? 18 wheelers all day and night. It's deafening. I would think they would take Western or some other 4 lane north/south street...

  • I've often wondered the same thing. Can feel my building shaking every time one rumbles by. Have also seen the big trucks scrapping against the overhanging branches of the trees. Seems especially incongruent with all the pedestrians and cyclists on California.

  • I often think that this must be what it's like when an earthquake begins, but then I remember that I wouldn't hear the ear numbing noise.

    I hear ya. Have the same issue here.

    I've lived in this city my whole life and unfortunately gun shots in the early morning hours is something that I have grown accustomed to. Although this Humboldt Park neighborhood is going through some extreme changes there are still some gang related turf wars going on. However, it does not compare to what it was like just 10 years ago and I predict 10 years from now, if this gentrification continues to march forward, these shootings will become a thing of the past in the East Humboldt Park Area. Just 20 years ago the Wicker Park Neighborhood was a gang infested neighborhood and look at what it has transformed into now.

  • Swiffer Green Girl

    Of course it was gang related....Really? Ya Think?
