In Maydays , two Chicago-area high-school students from different worlds meet at a Model United Nations conference and quickly become more than Facebook friends. Alicia and Daniel explore the city, from Pilsen to Winnetka, and watch the many worlds within Chicago come together and clash at the 2012 NATO Summit as they learn just how much divides us and what it takes to come together. Fanfare for Marching Band features Chicago?s own beloved musical collective Mucca Pazza as they form a ragtag musical militia and embark on an inept invasion to engage an immobilized public.

Finding teardowns in Chicago

A recent suspected teardown, at 1923 S Allport in Pilsen (25th Ward, 19th place for teardowns from 2006 to now). The demolition permit...

This article has 1 other Chicago location (Show)

The South Loop, represented by the Near South Side community area, has had 0 suspected teardowns from 2012 to now. There was one teardown in the entire time period, where a three-story commercial was demolished at 1720 S Michigan Ave and replaced with a 32-story residential tower.

  • So Steven Vance, because you feel 'teardowns.' are good for a article you wrote about the Allport dilapidated, unsafe, abandoned, had been for sale, nobody was buying building is a real good example?

  • Erik H Loyola & UofC alumnus, Chicago Loot Drop charity

    I think the article shows that teardowns are more common in places where there's a lot of construction and investment. The article's mostly a survey of data, but it strikes me that the areas with a lot of teardown activity are really hot markets for real estate.

Pilsen Violence update

Good morning. I was again woken up by the sound of a gun being fired. I'm posting this message for all Pilsen residents to be aware of any nearby shootings. I highly recommend checking out the Twitter page @Chicago_Scanner. If you ever hear gunshots, the account usually reports within seconds a near location followed by the exact location and what happened.

Good morning. I was again woken up by the sound of a gun being fired. I'm posting this message for all Pilsen residents to be aware of any nearby shootings. I highly recommend checking out the Twitter page @Chicago_Scanner. If you ever hear gunshots, the account usually reports within seconds a near location followed by the exact location and what happened. I learned within seconds of hearing the gunshots that someone on 923 West Cullerton was shot and quickly driven to the hospital. If anyone knows any websites or accounts that can quickly give you information about gun fire happening around, please share it. I'm new to the neighborhood and love it too much to let the violence go unnoticed. Thank you.

  • Bonasera Pro communist pro euthanasia

    Good job omar... Since you're new to the neighborhood these shootings might be new to you. If you would've lived here back in the day (late 80s early 90s) there were so many shootings back then u would've been tired of posting

  • kae grad student, dog lover, pilsen res.

    Hey Omar--welcome to the neighborhood! The best advice I've gotten is to call 911 and report. As robin said, the police resources will be allocated to your area based on volume of 911 reports. Hope the violence doesn't deter you! I've been here a little over 3 years, and truly love the neighborhood.
