People in front of the soon to be Octavio

What are they pitching? I see them across the way but never make it to the west side of Clark St.

  • Ugh. I have no idea but they stop me all the time and honestly they are kind of jerks when I say I can't talk 🙄

  • I don't know about Octavio being "soon to be." They had the door propped open on Thursday, the interior is completely stripped.

    There's always a bunch of clip board folks on that block. Various charities looking for donations.

  • HarleyGrrl Why YES! People actually DO live on Clark St!

    And now.... there's a guy with a cape out front...

1472 W Rascher

More of an observation, but has anyone noticed a decline in this property? Seems like there's an unusual amount of people in and out of the building, now 2 broken windows that have been "boarded" over. Also, people are living in the garage behind the building, and it's NOT a coach-house. About 2 weeks ago, there was a Sheriff's vehicle in the alley adjacent to the property. This is immediately behind the Philadelphia Church.

At the same time, I'm never really offended when my black/Asian/gay/BI/tranny/whatever friends refer to me as their token (*insert non-standard whatever-they-and-their-majority-friends-are descriptor*) friend. It just is what it is. I realize in a written word forum where everyone may or may not yet know one another many people nowadays are trending either hyper-pc or overly-sensitive on the reaction spectrum, but may I kindly suggest that we all try to be better at once again giving folks the benefit of doubt for our default setting?
