    Man charged with Canaryville shooting
    A man has been charged with shooting another man during a robbery attempt last week in the Canaryville neighborhood on the South Side. Eric Blake, 23, was arrested Wednesday and has been charged with felony counts of aggravated battery with a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon for the April 11 attack, according to Chicago Police.

  • Bronzeville Curmudgeon Bronzeville Conservator

    If we are not mistaken, the shooting and robery occured in the Fuller Park community, not in Canaryville. Canaryville is geographically located west of the B & O railroad tracts at Stewart avenue 500 West!

    Fuller Park and Armour Square two traditional African American communities are geographically located within the Black Metropolis National Heritage Area! www.bviconline.info!

  • Mike Bayne Dunning area New to the area and have 2 children.

    Wrong, this happened in Canaryville.

  • Historically Amour Square is a white Italian-American and Croatian working class neighborhood however in recent years is made up of mostly Asians.

For family of Ida B. Wells-Barnett, hopes that renewed interest translates into a monument

Next month, the city of Chicago is expected to rename a portion of 37th Street and South King Drive after Wells-Barnett.

    For family of Ida B. Wells-Barnett, hopes that renewed interest translates into a monument
    From her base on the South Side, Ida B. Wells-Barnett crusaded against the racist lynching of black men, pushed for women's right to vote and started numerous organizations to help African-Americans gain economic and political power in Chicago and the country.

    That's the least the city of Chicago can do, once they destabilized and then demolished the Ida B. Well public housing development where I was born.

    The name Oakwood Shores is a regentrification branding term used by out of town developers for the area between Cottage Grove and King Drive from 37th to 39th Street.

    South Loop Rental Market "Challenged" in next 12 to 18 Months?
    We were driving around the South Loop recently and were surprised about the scale of all the buildings going up in the neighborhood. Yes, we've posted about them and spent a lot of time talking about them on Sloopin, but seeing all of them in the wild made us do a double take.
