Criminal activity

Residents are not being notified of neighborhood criminal activity in a timely manner.
If residents and guests are not notified by the city or association management companies, the criminals are free to attack again until they are caught.
There must be a better notification system sent immediately once an attack is reported by a victim.

    In a perfect world, not in Chicago. He'll sadly receive a slap on the wrist and be let back out sooner than you think.

    John Adams
    Were you talking about the commanders death?
    If so your right about the In Chicago. He'll sadly receive a slap on the wrist and be let back out sooner than you think.
    The politicians say they want to something. How about bringing back the death penalty for crimes like this
    But that will never happen with all the snow flakes and politicians with no Bxxxs

    Lincoln was best, Nixon among the worst: Southland's history experts weigh in on presidential performance
    Abraham Lincoln has been named the best president in American history in a very unofficial, very unscientific survey of a handful of local high school and college social studies teachers. "In large part because of his devotion to democracy," says Rob Shapiro, adjunct professor of political philosophy at Saint Xavier University on Chicago's southwest side.

    Black Panther's identity politics give the superhero genre a fresh spin
    The first black superhero in mainstream American comics, Marvel's Black Panther came with an African pedigree: in real life he's the ancestral king of a small, impoverished sub-Saharan nation that conceals a secret empire, the whole operation empowered by an asteroid from outer space.

Work About to Start on Columbia College’s New Student Center

Three months after the ceremonial groundbreaking, construction crews have finally been given the giddy-up to start work on Columbia College’s new student center at 754 South Wabash Avenue.

Music fans will recognize the address as the former location of Buddy Guy’s Legends — one of the few blues clubs left in a city that was once internationally famous for its blues clubs.  Legends opened at this location in 1989, and moved to 700 South Wabash two decades later.

  • Pacific Garden Mission feeds these people and a place to sleep overbite. They need additional services such as job readiness, counseling, more permanent housing arrangements. If you know of any of these places why not contact them to offer Pacific Garden help in getting THESE PEOPLE alternative places to get Help. It is tragic no different than the people living on Lower Wacker.

  • Jambo neighbor

    In the meantime, the police should patrol this area frequently. Cameras should be placed in the area. People that live in the neighborhood should not walk in this area and try avoid driving anywhere around this building. It is too dangerous.
