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.

  • Be52 content creator

    I will look into each of these suggestions and register for important notifications. A repeat criminal, robber and sexual assaulter was roaming the south loop and ready to attack again. Fast work by the CPD got him arrested. Instead of attacking innocent people he'll spend the rest of his days in jail.
    Thank you to all who commented.

  • "he'll spend the rest of his days in jail."

    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.

Suggestions for Block of Land For Sale

Hi Neighbors. We noticed that there is a for sale sign at a parking lot on the 2100 Block of South Indiana (adjacent to The Lex and across from the Wintrust Arena). Our community needs a full grocery store and a pharmacy. Any suggestions regarding how we can encourage these types of businesses into our developing neighborhood?

Piano teacher?

Hi, I'm looking for a piano teacher for my five year old. Any recommendations? We have a piano, so we're able to have someone come to us, if needed. Thanks!

  • These are great ideas, thank you! I also found a site, takelessons.com, where you can look within an area code and see reviews for a teacher, too. I'm going to check out the places you recommended, as well. Thank you!

  • Follow-up, I tried the takelessons.com and had a miserable experience. Wouldn't stop harassing me after I created a profile, and when I did try to enlist a teacher, the teacher backed out within 30 minutes. Was told I would have someone try and help find a replacement, but no one ever contacted me and I called to get a refund. So, just FYI! Now looking at other options.

Obnoxious Loudness in Pilsen

How can people in certain parts of Pilsen tolerate Banda music and drunkeness in the middle of the night? How? The is a total lack of regard for people who have wake up early. Moreover, if you call the police, you become a target for their animosity. Does anyone know how to silence these folks without becoming a target?

Pilsen Alliance not so innocent

The Pilsen Alliance isn't so innocent when it comes to race.

  • As a real estate professional ANYWHERE you can't "steer". Meaning you can't direct people to a neighborhood if the intention is good or bad.
    Example: You can't direct a Mexican family to Pilsen simply because they're Mexican and Pilsen presently has a high Mexican population.

    Example: You can't direct a Mexican family to Pilsen simply because they're Mexican and Pilsen presently has a high Mexican population.
    The intention may be good but for a real estate agent, it's illegal even so.
    I don't read any veiled meaning in these posts.
    What the Pilsen Alliance is doing is directly "steering" and even worse.
    They're singling out racial groups as enemies in their own neighborhood for the fact these people are not Mexican.
    Racism to a major degree.
    They have not interest in harmony.
    Their cause is self serving and delusional.

  • Ringo712 Block Captain

    Looks to me there's alot of Indians and other Asian groups moving in as well. What they all have in common is green money. If you don't have money you can't choose were you live.

Indoor places for family pictures

I'm a stickler for taking family pictures every year, but this year I procrastinated and missed the fall season. Now it's way too cold to take outdoor pictures so I'm thinking this might give us an opportunity to take pictures at a cool location we wouldn't ordinarily use. Any suggestions?

Santa arrives early with wonder dog SYD

Santa dropped by the house early today to check out the chimney - to make sure he'd fit - and also to drop by and see his favorite canine - SYD - they obviously have a great rapport.

  • (Bow)Wow SYD, you must have been nice and not naughty to score a personal visit from Santa! Peace, love and joy to both of you.
