The Riot Fest!?!?

My mom is 70 years old and it sucks she can't enjoy the park she pays so much property taxes for!!! I guess it's the hell with Latinos!!! And I like to know why all Puerto Rican festivals don't have a liquor license but the Riot fest did?!?! Is it cause it's mostly whites attending?!? Just wondering?!?!?

  • Riot fest is only south of division, so about 80% of humboldt park was still open to grandma. Was she trying to play softball or something?

  • Don't worry about all the revenue (tax $$) that those 3 days brought to Humbolt Park. It's allot more than the block I'm sure you grandma lives on. Oh don't forget all the local businesses (bars/restaurants/grocery stores) that benefitted from this also. I'm sure so of these business are owned by Latinos.

Bullhorn! Spaulding and Division, ahhhhhh!

I'm gonna rip the bullhorn out of that kids hand on Spaulding and Division. I asked these idiots to stop with this yesterday, but no. I'm not traditionally a complainer and I love Riot fest. I wish I could hear crazy loud music, but I don't. I can't hear anything but this little jerk yelling, "Riot fest parking, riot fest paaarrrrkkkkinggggg!!!" down at the most unfriendly church parking lot ever. Blocking off the street??? making a tidy profit and a Sh*t ton of noise. My goodness, way to take advantage. I don't want to hear a peep of complaining from that group EVER! I'm done venting now, but I might call 311.

Radius of a No Loitering sign..

I need to put up a No Loitering sign on my fence. Does anyone have any experience they can share? Can they just cross the street and be cleared from the sign violation? I've asked these guy's to find another place to sit around and now since they have absolutely nothing better to do. .. they actually PURPOSELY make it a point be there when I get home from work to taunt me and my family...has anyone ever had success getting their loiter's arrested?

Pittbull attack

Walking my dogs today was the third time this month I've had a pittbull charge and threaten the safety of my pups.

Keep dogs on leashes and report those who do not.
The fine is $400.

Prayer Vigils against violence at Crystal & Keeler

Hi all, about fifty neighbors and supporters gathered at Crystal & Keeler for a prayer vigil this past Wednesday, the one before that, and the one before that! Alderman Emma Mitts came out to show her support, and DNA Info covered the vigil: http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20140821/west-humboldt-park/humboldt-park-elders-new-neighbors-mourn-after-11-murders-2014.

We are looking for a choir to join us next week! Please contact me if you think you might be able to lend your support.

A new facebook page was created as a brand new forum to continue a long history of community organizing in the neighborhood: https://www.facebook.com/4100CrystalBlockClub
