Why Census Figures Favor Rham
by Edward McClelland
“The trend is a result for the plan for transformation of the Chicago Housing Authority, and the displacement of 110,000 people,” mayoral candidate William “Dock” Walls told Ward Room. “Some of ’em have left Chicago. They’ve gone to the suburbs, or Indiana.”
“In 25 years, it’ll all be like this,” he said, referring to his ward. “There’s too much demand for land in the city.”

“The trend is a result for the plan for transformation of the Chicago Housing Authority, and the displacement of 110,000 people,” mayoral candidate William “Dock” Walls told Ward Room. “Some of ’em have left Chicago. They’ve gone to the suburbs, or Indiana.”
“In 25 years, it’ll all be like this,” he said, referring to his ward. “There’s too much demand for land in the city.”

Several years ago, I talked to a lakefront alderman who predicted Chicago would become a Midwestern Manhattan, with the wealthy inside the city limits, and the poor banished to suburbia.

“In 25 years, it’ll all be like this,” he said, referring to his ward. “There’s too much demand for land in the city.”

Razing Cabrini Green to make way for the expansion of the Near North Side is part of that process. Expect it to intensify if Emanuel becomes mayor. It’ll be to his political advantage, and the city’s financial advantage. In the future, you won’t have to go down to Oak Street to see aspiring Eurotrash. They’ll be all over the city. It’s only a matter of time before Barneys New York opens a discount outlet in East Garfield Park.
