New Plaza on Archer and Pershing?

I'm not sure if that is what they are building on the corner of Archer and Pershing, but what if they do. What kind of pros and cons is our neighborhood looking at?

Traffic 47th & Keeler

Hello, the traffic in the morning is crazy. Crossing 47th street down Keeler is merely impossible. There is a sign that clearly reads " do not block intersection", but nobody seems to care. Is takes me 15 minutes to cross 47th street because nobody wants to let me through. Mind you, I don't like to be an aggressive driver. I think having stop signs on the intersection of 47th and Keeler can help, or at least traffic patrol. Who can I suggest this to? Thank you.

  • Best thing would probably be to contact the school administration or attend a board meeting if they have them, and bring up the issue. Or, let the Alderman know.

  • Mary on the block mommy mode

    Thank you all. I will definitely be addressing this to the alderman and school administration.

Homeless man archer and pershing

Why is this Homeless man out all year around. How can the city help him? How can we help him?
I drive by every morning on my way to work. I don't know how to help him.

  • John W. More equal wealth based on more equal work

    He is seriously mentally ill, and there is very little that anyone can do, under the current state of the laws, which allow even those with no grip on reality to make their own decisions on how to live. At least as long as they are not committing any crimes....

    He is seriously mentally ill, and there is very little that anyone can do, under the current state of the laws, which allow even those with no grip on reality to make their own decisions on how to live. At least as long as they are not committing any crimes.

    He has been around there for years. I think when it becomes unbearably cold he may find a place indoors, but otherwise, that is his life.

    It does seem rather odd to me that he spends a lot of time on Archer, as he does not panhandle. At least not that I have seen. Maybe people just help him out without being asked. Years ago I knew some older people who would provide some assistance, and in the hot summers we would freeze water in plastic bottles and give it to him.

    I think the only thing that non-professionals can do is to educate themselves about mental illness.

  • Guadalupe Garcia LongTime Brighton Park Neighbor

    He's been part of the neighborhood landscape for a long time. I have never known him to be violent, beg or act erratic. Some folks have no support system and fall on unfortunate circumstances. Some choose to live this way for reasons that are beyond our understanding. I imagine a meal, a warm beverage, cold weather gear or even a kind word would not be unwelcome. My brother speaks to him on occasion and he once offered my brother a sandwich.

    Great looking out for one another.

  • He use to be staged at the abandon building next door to Dunkin Donuts on Archer. One time he was removed then the entrance way was covered with a chain link fence. The homeless man returned and parked across the street, near the gas station.

    Yes he's been there so...

    Yes he's been there so long, I believe almost a decade or more.

    Whenever the winter weather gets dangerous, I call for him to be taken off the street for his safety. I'm not sure if others call, but he always finds his way back.

    It will be interesting to see what happens when the new shopping strip opens up where the old Archer Bus Barn was, maybe he's just a fixture to the neighborhood.

SRO Building on 38th and Archer

This building has 20+ units. The number of garbage cans cannot support the tenants. A building on this size should have a dumpster. It's mouse season. I live next door to the building and am concerned.

  • Bonasera Pro communist pro euthanasia

    ? I'm trying to picture this building? Where is it exactly? It's not the 3 or 4 flat that was converted into individual rooms, and has a bunch of ppl living there...

  • It is across from the gas station and Laundromat. No fence.

Cigar tubes?

I am looking for a few (1 or 2 dozen) metal / aluminum cigar tubes, any ideas?

  • C. W. concerned home owner

    A few years ago, I needed cigar boxes and went to a tobacco shop. One store gave me boxes for free and another wanted to charge me for them. So if you go to a tobacco store just ask one of the people who work there. Good luck.

Attempting kidnapping-CPD does not care

My daughter was walking to school at 4:50 pm to go see basketball game and when she was approached by two men in Gray SUV told her get into vehicle One was in the driver side and one was in the back passenger side it was in the corner of Pershing and kedize daughter ran to Davis school and talk to office personnel they called police and still waiting for them to show up its now 6:43pm wife it's on hold CPD.

  • was thinking about the chicago police. i"ve always thought that the CAPS program is what really helped us the most. and the officers themselves were great. it seems thou that the funding for that program has been cut over the last few years. they dont have the resources to support a good program. that is policy that comes from the top. what ever the big vision from our leaders is, it isn't working.

  • archer and kedzie archer and kedzie

    I got a letter from Davis about this incident and it really concerns me I hope somethings done about it. Thankfully she's ok

    To be honest, it doesn't seem to be a quality job. It's pretty uneven and still unpainted last I drove that way. We'll see how long it lasts. On a positive note, it was resurfaced quickly (unlike Western!). Let's hope Damen and the east leg of Western are next!

Boycott the Sun-times

Bruce Rauner used to own a piece of the sun-times, now after not endorsing candidates as their policy, they come out and endorse Rauner, and fire a reporter for not writing good things about him. They want to keep us stupid, and are worse than Fox news. I'll never give them a dime of my money again. I remember when the tribune endorsed Bush (jr.), look at the big hole that got us in. that was the day we canceled our subscription. If you want real, accurate news, just look online.

    Since the monopolistic powers that be prevented having a question of term limits on the ballot in the upcoming election, I am starting a new movement called DIY Term Limits, with DIY meaning Do It Yourself.

    For legislators, 10 years in the same legislative body is enough. They need time to get familiar with the legislative body, become a committee chair, and have some influence. Then they need to move up or out.

    For those in executive positions, two terms (even if one is not a full term) are enough.

    I think I might make up some DIY Term Limit Shirts for the city elections....................
