South loop and burns

Will burns who will be the new alderman in the south loop needs to learn the boundaries and needs of the citizens. He refuses to respond to comments or questions. It's time for a change. He has one agenda and that's to vote lock step with Emanuel. We need cops not bike lanes nor a Lucas museum.

  • Cops not bike lanes? What kind of problems are you having that you think more cops will solve?

Siren noise pollution

As a newer tenant to 520 S. State, I've broken down a few times in tears due to the overabundance of noise pollution. It is unbearable with the 24/7 emergency vehicle sirens, horn honking, motorcycles, red line construction (Harrison & State), and the list goes on. What can we possibly do to attempt to manage this noise pollution besides an 8 a. noise ordinance??? The emergency sirens are MUCH too loud. Maybe at a 120 decibel level which is impairing??? I've been experiencing sleep deprivation big time. Any ideas how to address this?

  • robin in WRP Tired, very tired

    Downtown is noisy. I'm not sure what you expected, but you should check your lease and see if you can sublet

    Downtown Chicago definitely has a noise level that may be hard to get used to if you come from a quiet location. Usually after a while, you will not hear all of the sirens, etc that are bothering you now. I have lived at Randolph & Michigan for over 23 years now, and now I am only disturbed bythe motorcyclists who roar down Randolph at 2:00 in the morning.

    You might try ear plugs at night or a white noise machine that will cut down the noise and help you to get more sleep. Keeping your windows closed helps too. I agree with "robin in WRP". Check your lease to see if you can sublet. Downtown Chicago is fabulous place to live but it is the hub of the city too, so there is more traffic, construction, road noise, etc than in neighborhoods away from the center. You need to decide what is most important and make your decision.

  • +1 robin - not too sure what you expected living downtown, but sirens are pretty standard. At least your not by a hospital.
