Hello All My South Shore Neighbors

Hello Neighbors,
Glad to connect with some people that are concerned about where they live. I was wondering about that shooting on Tuesday night. I came home from work and seen the crowd of people in shock. I think its time we start seeing more police presence just like Hyde Park. I know we don't have the commercial business like them bit, this is troubling to have a shooting so close to a street like South Shore. I am going to the Alderman office to see about more police walking the beat again. Any other suggestions is greatly appreciated.

    Hello I am a Court Advocate in the 3rd District and the Police were over there yesterday investigating and found out what is really going on. There is a building on 72nd South Shore that is a problem. The building has major issues and the police are working with the city to vacate this building. We are planning on attending court when we get the date.

On a related note; if anyone has any old toys their pup has lost interest in, consider giving them a second life by donating them to one of the dog parks... also any grocery bags for the bag dispensers would also be greatly appreciated.

Owner of 7758-46 S. Kingston -do you know him/her?

Hi,

To my understanding, someone has purchased the building and wants to actually take care of it and be a responsible landlord. Once the old tenants were kicked out, the block was much better...quite, less litter, no yelling, less ppl hanging out on the corners, etc. Now it seems they are renting again and the chairs are on the sidewalk now with folks loitering, yelling down the block, drinking, and tossing trash in the street.

Hi,

To my understanding, someone has purchased the building and wants to actually take care of it and be a responsible landlord. Once the old tenants were kicked out, the block was much better...quite, less litter, no yelling, less ppl hanging out on the corners, etc. Now it seems they are renting again and the chairs are on the sidewalk now with folks loitering, yelling down the block, drinking, and tossing trash in the street. I just saw that Saturday at 10a when I drove by. Why aren't these landlords adding clauses to the leases for disturbing the peace and breaking rules. There are clear no loitering signs posted on the building that to my understanding are ignored.

Buildings like this has the potential to bring in a lot of tenants to the area. It needs to attract ppl with common sense and those who respect their neighbors. Mandating quite hours is one way to quickly weed out those who want to cause trouble. Simple and free ammo to an arsenal of tricks for a better building and better block. Pangea manages a few buildings on Kingston from 75th-79th and they don't appear to have these issues on a regular basis. I have spoken to them about issues on various blocks of Kingston and it was addressed in a reasonable amount of time. Once a tenant starts to act out, the mediation and sometimes eviction process is swift which I appreciate. I am sure that others do as well if they want to just enjoy their homes in peace.

The block shouldn't have to have a marked car parked on it for ppl to be respectful and live in order which in the past 2 yrs was required for the former residents of this particular building. I don't want this to be the same for the new ones.

Anyone know about living at 7321 South Shore or 6700 South Shore?

Hi All,
I've been investigating moving back to South Shore (I'm in California now, but grew up in HP/SS and lived at 73rd & Jeff from '85 to '98).

Hi All,
I've been investigating moving back to South Shore (I'm in California now, but grew up in HP/SS and lived at 73rd & Jeff from '85 to '98). Been looking at real estate, paying close attention to all the reports you've given on all the unfortunate changes in the community in the last few years, but still interested because frankly, I LOVED living there and I have faith in it making a rebound (in large part because of the Everyblock member community). I've been looking at two high rises, 7321 SS Drive and 6700 SS Drive. Re 7321, it's an older building, looks beautiful and has some reasonable prices for condos, but I wonder mainly about heating an older place like that, if it's sky high or not. 6700 is newer, presumably with more efficient heating, but I also wonder about the level of noise from other apartments in both of them. Does anyone have any experience (good or bad) living in those two buildings? Even know some one who lives there I might be able to communicate with? Thanks!

    Hello, Hugh.

    I live at 7321 S. South Shore Drive. It is an exceptionally beautiful place with large apartments. It is a historic building, on the National Register of Historic Places. The building owns 300 feet of Lake Michigan waterfront, so there are expansive views from all units and access directly to the lake.
    Our assessments include heat, water, real estate taxes and basic building insurance, plus normal maintenance and security. We are a co-op, so all owners share in the responsibility and the pride in this place. My husband and I are on the Hospitality Committee and we would be delighted to show you around.
    Here is a site that will give you a little information about the building and its history.

    A walk down Michigan Ave leads one to believe we are a glorious prosperous city. Any tourist and foreigner can walk away with that impression. Heck, those who live in those privilleged zones can walk away with that wonderful impression.

    Driving from the Lake to Oak Park on Madison will shatter that impression. One can see just how quickly color changes, the environment changes, poverty begins, accellerates and you are in Tijuana in 1970.

    Chuck, google: RT, Chicago, Poverty and you can see a very good video. It explains visually our problem and shows it like it is. It is perhaps that video that got economic reform started in Englewood.
