Attempted stabbing- 900 block of S. Racine

Early Saturday morning 3-4 a.m, I was waiting for someone to let me into an apartment (forgot my keys, oops) when a hooded man wearing all black approached asking if I was alright (rightfully so, as I was alone in the wee hours of the morning) Then he pulled out a boxcutter and began trying to stab at the back of my head. As soon as I screamed, he ran away. As soon as I was able to get indoors,...

Early Saturday morning 3-4 a.m, I was waiting for someone to let me into an apartment (forgot my keys, oops) when a hooded man wearing all black approached asking if I was alright (rightfully so, as I was alone in the wee hours of the morning) Then he pulled out a boxcutter and began trying to stab at the back of my head. As soon as I screamed, he ran away. As soon as I was able to get indoors, I called 911 and they sent out a car to patrol the area but had no luck finding him. Be on the lookout for a man wearing a black fur-lined coat with a scarf wrapped around his head and sunglasses. Not sure if he will try this stunt again, but thought I'd get word out.

Morgans Bar and Grill

Hey!

I may have missed it, but does anyone know what happened to Morgans?

Thanks!

  • 25th Little Italy

    Morgan's closed because they couldn't compete with the new bars that opened in the area. UIC did hold their lease, but the decision had nothing to do with UIC.

  • Interesting...good to know! Hopefully, a great new place will open there soon!

    Thanks

Viaducts in the City Need to be Addressed

There are 300 Viaducts in the City of Chicago.

As you are well aware, the viaducts are a mess for both safety and health.

Michelle Fennessy a Chicago resident has taken on this viaduct issue in a big way.

We have been in contact with City Hall, Streets and San, Department of Health, the Railroads and even will go to Warren Buffett whose company Berkshire Hathaway has the controlling interest in the BNSF railroad. There is a meeting set up...

There are 300 Viaducts in the City of Chicago.

As you are well aware, the viaducts are a mess for both safety and health.

Michelle Fennessy a Chicago resident has taken on this viaduct issue in a big way.

We have been in contact with City Hall, Streets and San, Department of Health, the Railroads and even will go to Warren Buffett whose company Berkshire Hathaway has the controlling interest in the BNSF railroad. There is a meeting set up with the Mayor in early January and we want to present him with the petition signed by as many folks as possible. Whether you are a resident of Chicago, in the suburbs, out of state, please sign. And please forward this to as many people as you know. The link to the viaduct petition is chicagoviaduct.com You can also post on your FACEBOOK PAGE!

We won't stop until these viaducts are safe for all. We all can't forget Natasha McShane, the Irish exchange student and Chicago friend Stacy Jurich who were badly beaten with a baseball bat under a Bucktown viaduct.

Lights need to be fixed, broken glass and pigeon droppings need to be cleaned up along with routine maintenance.

In addition cracked walls, ceilings falling. Certainly don't need someone hit by this.

The link says it all...would appreciate anything you can do to spread the word.
