    This is an interesting article. I, for the most part agree with the comments made by people that were interviewed. People are very nice in WGP and it does have a lot of quiet moments, but it could be much better. I've been here since '05 and have never witnessed a serious crime. My biggest peeves are the garbage, unkempt properties, open-air drugs sales that are allowed to go on day and night and ignored by the CPD, gang activity and the amount of loitering that's allowed to happen. And of course Alderman Jason Ervin...the lazy Alderman who must not realize how physically disgusting and filthy the 28th ward is. Especially W. Madison Street.

    Overall, it's not so bad but the dysfunction gets a little overwhelming at times.
