There are 20 plus residents who have yet to move from their homes located between 55th-61st (Stewart to Parnell). The area is where the Norfolk Southern railroad expansion is taking place. Many residents and community activists are not only upset with the environmental concerns but also with the financial burden, unfairness and strong arm tactics that they say have been taking place since 2010.

Hello, Neighbours

I am an out of town investor and I am wondering what the neighbourhoods along 61st street are like? Would this be considered a war zone?

  • Mark Conroy Real Estate Investor

    When I get a chance I will. I'm actually out on the west coast, so its a bit of a commute...lol

  • Mark C. All of chicago is generally a war Zone. It's overcrowded, an folks tend not to trust each other enough. And some are to inconsiderate of others. They think they derserve more room and that everyone else is encroaching on them

and Bronzeville's Buckthorn Park led by Ephraim Lee xhle@hotmail.com

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.

  • Todd Agosto Analyst/Investigator at Veritatem Cognoscere

    As for all these claims that there are not enough recreational opportunities for our youth. I'd say take a closer look. There are more than enough basketball and tennis courts, baseball diamonds and soccer/football fields all over the southside. Problem is... not enough youth are putting them to good use and as a result most of these spaces rarely, if ever, get put to use for their intended purposes.

An Englewood Rising: What Code for America Means for Chicago

This week marks the annual Code for America Summit. The Summit is THE event that convenes and celebrates the nation’s civic technology ecosystem. I chose the word “convenes” deliberately, because civic technology itself is about convening city stakeholders. The summit will showcase where citizens have partnered with their governments to take an active role in their communities, largely through technology.
