Old dude outside of Windy City Movers

Anyone know anything about the old dude pounding Old Styles outside Windy City movers on Clark? He's there everyday, rain or shine. Never asking for money or bothering anybody, just drinking.

  • He is associated with the place. Lately he sits on the couch inside the front window. I've been walking past him daily for almost two years now. He used to be exclusively PBR, but lately I've noticed he's drinking Busch as well. Perhaps the moving business is falling on hard times. =)

Signs of hope as Uptown struggles with violence

In September 2013, McGhee, 40, and three of her four children relocated to the city’s South Shore neighborhood. On Monday, her second oldest, Christopher McGhee, 22, was shot and killed steps from his former home, in the 4500 block of North Magnolia Avenue, according to Chicago Police.

He attributed the decrease in crime, particularly in hot spots like the corner of Sheridan and Lawrence avenues and the corner of Sheridan and Wilson avenues, to joint efforts by the 19th and 20th police districts and local neighborhood organizations.
