  • Johnny Baths has the correct idea. Milwaukee needs to be a heavily traveled corridor for the expansion of Chicago, and has all of the infrastructure it needs, it just doesn't have enough trains during the rush hours.

  • Yes, more Blue Line trains to accommodate peak commute ridership demand. However, O'Hare - Loop Airport express trains Daley pushed for CTA would use Blue Line track corridor, making local Blue Line service even worse. Unused Block 37 Superstation wasted $250,000,000 for this plan. http://chicago.curbed.com/2017/2/10/14566198/ohare-downtown-transit-rail-line-express-train

Check Out Gorgeous Photos Of The Congress Theater's Terra Cotta Facade

Last month, Nordstrom journeyed inside the theater, 2135 N. Milwaukee Ave., where he found a collection of old objects that he said tell the story of the tradesmen who built the movie palace in 1926.

    Check Out Gorgeous Photos Of The Congress Theater's Terra Cotta Facade
    LOGAN SQUARE - It's hard to tell just how intricately designed the Congress Theater's facade is from the street. So urban archaeologist Eric Nordstrom climbed the historic theater's scaffolding to get up close. What he found was incredibly detailed Italian renaissance-style terra cotta, featuring faces with "unsettling frozen" expressions, eagles and symbols, all of which left him awestruck.

    These are gorgeous photos of this old movie palace. You would never see this level of detail from the street ... such beauty hidden in plain sight.

Logan Square Hit-And-Run Victim 'Sent Flying' At Kimball And Wrightwood

"I remember rolling off the hood, hitting the ground and the car just took off," said Pallardy, who has lived at Kedzie and Lyndale avenues for about eight years.

Logan Square Hit-And-Run Victim 'Sent Flying' At Kimball And Wrightwood

    Logan Square Hit-And-Run Victim 'Sent Flying' At Kimball And Wrightwood
    LOGAN SQUARE - Police are searching for a driver who hit Richard Pallardy while he was walking home last week and then drove off. Around 9:10 p.m. Feb. 10, Pallardy was walking home from an evening swim at the Kosciuszko Park pool when a dark-colored car struck him and "sent him flying" at Kimball and Wrightwood avenues, according to Pallardy and police.
    https://www.dnainfo.com

  • Wow. Thankfully Pallardy is young and able to bounce-back from his injuries (his words). Stinks that he's going to take about $4K in medical bills on the nose due to the incident.

  • catlady for the love of cats, lets get along!

    Wrightwood is crazy! Many people take Wrightwood as a short cut or faster route to get home but the drivers are nuts! They do not make complete stops, ride your arse so you can drive faster, or just drive around you! So needless to say unfortunatley I am not surprised this happend to this poor guy.

    My husband and I were the victims of a hit and run while walking down Wrightwood at Central Park a year ago. A truck plowed into us making a left turn onto Central Park. It happened so fast, I was only able to get a partial plate as they sped away. I bounced off and was lucky to just have some soft tissue damage, but my husband's elbow was broken in pieces.

    Two surgeries and thousands of dollars in medical bills later, the driver was never caught. I had a police officer actually ask me why I seemed surprised since there are so many "illegal" immigrants living in the area, which I thought was kind of a leap to make. Another officer said even if I had the full plate, we didn't get a good look at the driver, so it would be hard to prosecute.

    It's maddening that this happens all the time and there's just no recourse. I live two blocks from where we were hit and I have near misses all the time because people drive way too fast and act like stop signs are optional.

    One tip I can offer is that if you have a car insurance policy, even if you get hit as a pedestrian, you can file a claim for medical and liability (if the driver ran). It's a nightmare to wade through insurance/medical bills, but that did help us offset our out-of-pocket costs.

    Good luck to Mr. Pallardy. I feel your pain!
