    So, poverty and one of the highest unemployment rates in the country means nothing? Instead of blaming the impoverished and desperate, so many youth resorting to crime just to eat while unemployment insurance was shutdown after only 26 weeks by a millionaires' Congress, food stamps cut to $30 mo for disabled seniors, no housing options, no jobs programs etc. I don't feel bad for anyone who does not get what is happening to so many RP families, teachers, moms & dads doing their best to survive. And what this mayor has done to the police as well? God'll get you for that

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...

  • 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.
