Thinking about Moving to 60616

Hi friends...we are thinking about moving from over the river to south of the river....seems like a great - upcoming area. A new Marriott Marquis just went up, a Hilton is in process - and I hope that a grocery, walgreens, etc. are on their way.

Any hints or pointers those of you who live in the area can offer. We don't have a car....so, public transit, walking are our primary modes of getting around....

  • Judy Happy Chicago Resident!

    Thank you all for your thoughtful responses....60616 here we come!

  • Hi Judy, my wife and I live in 60605 and work in 60616 often. We would be happy to help you find the right place to live. Please shoot me an email at marcus@marlenproperties.com so that we can help you accomplish your goal :)

Henry Louis Gates Jr. on his never-ending quest to excavate African-American history

...free. By 1896, so many of the rights ensured by the Reconstruction amendments — the 13th, 14th and 15th — had been rolled back. I want to make this film as a cautionary tale to...

    Henry Louis Gates Jr. on his never-ending quest to excavate African-American history
    Pioneering feminist Anna J. Cooper once wrote, "black people have to stop imitating white people and white culture." She went on to say that black Americans in 1893 had to find their own voice, the roots of which are buried in the literature, mythology and folktales and music created by their enslaved ancestors.

Loud Motorbike Racing Over East Pilsen

Motorcycles, some easily reaching speeds over 100mph, race on Dan Ryan Expy with impunity. Nightly, between midnight and 4am, motorcycles speed South of Roosevelt to God-knows-where. I never hear a siren give chase. What gives? Where's the State Police? You could easily make a few thousand in fines for empty state coffers.
Loudest is Ryan over Canalport @2am. Your help will be appreciated.

Racial Wafts

There are no less than 8 mentions of an attack by 4 black youth on 1 white man on south Michigan Monday night.
Yes, a problem exists. Always has.
But I don't recall Lequan McDonald getting this much press when he was murdered (prior to video release).
Every single news outlet posted their take, and the underlying theme in most is "Oh, no. Not in my playground. Call the National Guard." Please.

Happy Thanksgiving.
