Divvy station at Clark and Wrightwood is empty, again

The Divvy station at Clark and Wrightwood seems to have an issue. It was completely empty Friday, and again last night, and this morning. Either it is broken, Divvy is ignoring, it, or some combination. I just sent a message to Divvy. Does anyone know if it's actually broken, or just somehow getting missed? It was full Wednesday and Thursday mornings last week.

    I think Divvy takes about 60-70% of their bikes out of service during the winter for maintenance and storage during the slower months. It could be that they haven't replaced the bikes for the Spring/Summer/Fall season yet.

    probably so, and they're advertising they're hiring

    still no divvy stations anywhere near here...

Hanig's Footwear - Clark/Diversey

I saw a "Lost our Lease" sign on the window of Hanig's Footwear (Clark/Diversey). Does anyone know what's going in there?

Updates on Crime/Vagrancy at Clark & Diversey?

I've been noticing a lot more people loitering against the Walgreens wall at Clark and Diversey since Panera Cares opened up. In addition, it seems like there are more homeless/drunks passed out in door entrances along Diversey after 9 or 10 PM each night. Is this being addressed at all? I haven't heard of an increase in crimes as of yet, but I definitely feel less safe walking around the area now.

  • Too bad this big corporation is not paying taxes, not supporting Cook County Hospital, Medicaid, mental health clinics, DCFS, public housing, police and all other city/county services needed by this population. Public institutions are suffering drastic budget cuts, the last thing they needed was another business to stop paying taxes....

    Too bad this big corporation is not paying taxes, not supporting Cook County Hospital, Medicaid, mental health clinics, DCFS, public housing, police and all other city/county services needed by this population. Public institutions are suffering drastic budget cuts, the last thing they needed was another business to stop paying taxes. Learn something from our alderman who has for-profit restaurants. He pays a lot of taxes, employs a lot of people, provides food/meeting space to many nonprofit organizations including seniors and other groups, fundraises for many institutions/nonprofits around here, all without fanfare. Keeps his restaurant open on Christmas eve for people who have no where to go. This is only a partial list of all that he does.. Our alderman is not wasting $$ buying national TV commercials to promote himself. He is very humble and quiet about it. He is the big philanthropist around here: pays full boat taxes which support all of these institutions that aid the disadvantaged population.
