Unshovelled snow on south michigan

Another year another impossible to get parking lot owners to shovel the snow. As a disabled person it is deadly to walk from 1000 south Michigan to 800 south Michigan. This happened last year and calls to Rebekah Scheinfeld, Rahms new CDOt person responsible did nothing. this year 311 complaints are not addressed nor are calls to will burns. It is criminal that the city treats handicapped seniors like this. I am voting for Fioretti, it's time for a change.

    You are a complete and total jerk. Just because one tells the truth about what a racist burns is they are mentally disabled. Let's discuss it in person.

Traffic light behavior

Hi Chicago drivers,

Does anyone know why (in the past 6 mos or so) drivers are going through backed up yellow and green lights, resulting in their car blocking the intersection of busy downtown streets? When this happens, it blocks lines of traffic for a mile up the street, resulting in a total blockage and even more bad driving. Trying to understand why this is happening, if there are any laws against it in IL, and how to maybe reduce the occurrences of it.

    "that's why I hate driving in the loop" shhhhhhh

  • In the past, we used to have traffic cops at certain intersections that were really bad. No more. I notice this on certain streets, and it's like these people are doing it on purpose. I don't drive but take the bus. I don't know how many times it would take 30 minutes to get through 1 light because of this.

South loop skate park noise

What's the point of living in an expensive building when mayor Emanuel and will burns along with the park guy kelly open a skate park so the neighbors can hear loud violent anti-women rap lyrics pounding. Messages left with cpd no response. Guess this us what mayor pay to play wants.

  • I can't believe they let that wiesel Bob O’Neill, President of The Grant Park Conservancy, convince the city take TIF money and foist the skate park in that space, which is technically not Grant Park. Their only goal is to use it to make inside money when they take it...

    I can't believe they let that wiesel Bob O’Neill, President of The Grant Park Conservancy, convince the city take TIF money and foist the skate park in that space, which is technically not Grant Park. Their only goal is to use it to make inside money when they take it over during Lalapalooza, you watch.

    Combine this mess with the incredibly poor presentation of the headless statues, Agora, and this corner is crapola that would not be allowed near the north side of the park. (Poor organization, wasted space, No landscaping, no lighting, no seating, etc.) They should rip that shiit out and put in another formal space.

    O'Neill needs to be neutered, is this an elected position? And why is Grant Park Conservancy being allowed to represent on Museum Campus and Northerly Island issues when they are not part of Grant Park; that is not legal in sense of the park district by-laws.

    That's what he talks about to gain favor with Rahm.

South loop skate park noise pollution

Mayor Emanuel, Will Burns and the Park District have decided to turn the area around Grant PArk into a place for loud violent, anti-woman rap music played so loud it penetrates into expensive condo buildings. Police and Alderman Burns were notified--no response--I guess this is what Emanuel wants. Now we will have a magnet for more crime and thugs coming into the neighborhood. He must be defeated.

    Go back to Michigan!

    Hey how bout skate boarding with headphones ?? That might work.
    And what if you're a skater that doesn't like rap? Do they take requests ?

Happy Hour Spots

Looking for a good happy hour spot to hopefully mingle with some new people. Preferably a place where a decent amount of people frequent within the 26-36 age range. Would love suggestions on some places to go to. Thanks in advance!
