To Flee, or Not to Flee

Consideration for the quality of housing, transportation, recreation, education, affordability, security and more go into selecting a place to live and raise your family.

Security is probably the highest concern of any parent. Fear of one's environment is the demon that has always crippled our spiritual growth and peace of mind. We can always run and flee in search of that fundamental right to be free of the ugly bully who might live next door or down the street, or stands insidiously on the corner. Participating and getting involved with your neighbors and organizations is one method of giving your community what you want to receive from your community.

  • SIR SEL OF NORTH LAWNDALE AND BEYOND I'm a community filth and fear fighter

    Don't want to mislead you. Rochelle, or anyone else, but I'm not an official resident of the No. Lawndale community. However, my interest and involvement in North Lawndale are equal to any concientious effort to contribute to the quality of life, as it is in any predominately African American community in Chicago. Stay public and engage in efforts to alter the attitudes and direction of our youth.

15th and Christiana

hello everyone,i am wondering if anyone can give me some insight about the area as me and my three kids are moving that way soon.Any info good or bad will be greatly appriciated.Thank you very much.

  • A friend recently moved from that block because she said there was an increase in gang activity. I don't mean to add any unnecessary fear but just wanted you to know. Yes there is crime everywhere. I would suggest looking on Chicago Tribune's crime map or another site to see the type of activity that happens around there.

  • Thank u,I recently been doing research and found its the highest crime rate,I acted on impulse and do to low income it was affordable but now I'm having second thoughts,I just needed to move out my in laws place.

Progressives, parents react to Karen Lewis decision not to run for mayor

WBEZ interviewed people regarding their thoughts on Karen Lewis' decision not to enter the Mayoral race.

Here's the link.https://soundcloud.com/wbez/progressives-parents-react-to-karen-lewis-decision-not-to-run-for-mayor#c=0&t=0:00

My comments come in at about 3:15.

  • Amara who?

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    Valerie - that was not my intention! I have a tremendous amount of respect for Karen Lewis; I heard her speak last year in Evanston and was blown away! I am saddened by her illness, and sending lots of positive, healing energy her way. That said, I never took her seriously as a candidate for mayor

    Antonio - Amara Enyia is running for mayor. I believe that she is the best candidate for mayor since Harold Washington

This council has a great deal of power under Senate Bill 51. The problem is companies almost never show up. They have to have something to advocate for. This is the council that decides rather companies receive waivers for BEP participation. There are many other issues that they deal with. My only suggestion is that when you go to the council have your company in position to do business. Make sure you are in good standing with the state. It is always helpful that you are certified with CMS as a BEP company.

    Of course they just relocate! We all know that. The issue is that there was an open, flagrant, drug structure on City property and a Park. There are all kinds of government workers providing service to those grounds. WHY???? Didn't city workers shut this drug dealing hut down?

    One is also naive to think...that our government is powerless to clean up this mess. Look at other neighborhoods with normal functioning economies and compare it to the vacant, empty, violent, blighted, dirty areas of the south and west sides.

  • Once again, if one goes to the "West" side(Austin neighborhood), it is not dirty, blighted, empty, and vacant. Actually, much cleaner than Cragin where I live. I go into the Austin area every day, do home visits. Now, violent, yes, according to police reports.

    Yes, the government can help, but it can't do it all itself.
