Howard "L" Station Cleaning

I was wondering if anyone else noticed how nasty the Howard station is lately? I know it's NEVER spotless and many "L" stations never are but I feel like it's been in rare form. Everything is filthy and smells of urine among other things.

Does anyone know if the cleaning has been halted or lessened due to the budget issues? Is there anything that we can do to address this? It's terrible that people have to travel through this day in and day out.

    The worst about the Howard station is around the Howard station.

  • NYC is funkier...DC is cleaner...but every transit system is going to get a little dirty now and again.

It's hooker season again

They seemed to disappear as winter arrived. Just noticed they are drifting back into my neighborhood again. Two of them were actually sitting on the back steps (leading to the basement) of my building just before noon on July 4. I came back a couple hours later and there was a wet nap and an unused condom in a wrapper lying on the steps. Nice. Saw another one ambling down my street with a couple of male friends the next morning just before 6:00 a.m.

My question is, what's the most effective way of getting these, ahem, ladies out? Police? (311? 911?) Alderman? Any other suggestions?

Over 400 residents voted this weekend at the Art Round Trip Festival to select the logo design that will adorn some of our new bike racks in high traffic areas. Four proposed designs were up for final consideration.

Rogers Park artist Robert Hansen's depiction of the sun rising over Lake Michigan (below) garnered the most votes.

New bike racks were one of the projects approved by the voters in previous 49th Ward participatory budgeting elections and I arranged with the City to set aside a portion of the money allocated to include a distinct logo design for some of the racks in high traffic locations. The four finalists were among over 40 proposed bike rack designs submitted for consideration. All the artists were required to either live in Rogers Park or have a studio located within Rogers Park.

A committee of representatives of the Participatory Budgeting Leadership Committee and the Rogers Park Arts Alliance narrowed down the submissions to four finalists.

To view the four proposed designs up for consideration and the votes they received, visit:

If need be, the winning design will be modified slightly to ensure the functionality of the bike racks.

Congratulations to winning artist, Robert Hansen, and many thanks to the over 40 artists who submitted proposals to the competition. It's a testament to the vibrancy of Rogers Park's artistic community.

    Are they installed? The bike racks were voted on and won in 2010. In 2014 a design was voted on and choosen. Bike Racks (Artistic). PENDING. The PB Leadership Committee decided that the designated funds will be used to manufacture “custom racks” that include an original Rogers Park inspired design within a standard staple rack. In addition, traditional staple racks of a matching color will be purchased and installed. A beachscape-inspired design by a local artist was selected in a community-wide vote. The racks have been scheduled to be manufactured and installed in 2016.

Street Prostitution on Clark from Glreenleaf to Estes

WTF is going on here? Driving home from work tonight, Friday, 07/07/2017 at about 6:30 pm, I observed the usual colony of prostitutes already gathering on the Northwest corners of Greenleaf & Clark, and Estes &Clark and migrating between the two corners along the west side of Clark street in that 7100 block of North Clark street. Even more aggrevating were the two bicyclye cops southbound on Clark along that west side of the street, one male, one blonde haired female, who continued along past these women oblivious to this urban decay which they are sworn to intervene. Our 24th district isn't doing its job and our local elected officials are a disgrace.

  • Why are there so many people here who feel it is okay to make fun of others? Take Omar for example .Everyone should be able to state their opinion without the fear of others picking what they have to say apart.

    Go ahead, nit pick your way through my comment...

  • ah yes, that Omar, such a nasty individual... Viciously attacking poor innocent people who are just trying to "state their opinions"--for example, the "opinion" that the drug recovery home is actually for prostitutes and child molesters.

    So you think no one should be accountable for saying offensive and factually wrong things on here, HAune?
