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 :)

Cops get beards, kids get toys - it's a win-win

The officers have called a moratorium on shaving in the hopes of helping less-fortunate kids. As their beards grow longer, they're hoping the toy bins inside the police station (1601 S. Halsted; 708-756-6400) and at Illiana Financial Credit Union (1030 Chicago Road; 708-755-6880), grow fuller.

    Cops get beards, kids get toys - it's a win-win
    It's a "hairy" Christmas in Chicago Heights as members of the police department will be sporting beards through the end of the year. The officers have called a moratorium on shaving in the hopes of helping less-fortunate kids. As their beards grow longer, they're hoping the toy bins inside the police station (1601 S.

Stop your whining.

I feel happy and proud when i see filming in the hood. It can be a slight temporary inconvenience. Shameless is a fabulous show that shines a light on a different way of life.

  • pbsene Local Business Owner, Tired American

    Right on! It creates way more jobs than just the overpaid actors - I have a good friend whose kids are both working behind the scenes on this show.

  • Pilsen/Heart of Chicago area have been part of movie & tv productions for decades. A few people that recently moved into area whine about many things that are not the real issues and concerns that actually effect our lives. The arts in general have thrived over the last few decades in our community, they add a great benefit to our community, and lives.

    A rare shoot in a neighborhood is one thing. Having a particular part of the neighborhood that is a popular industrial movie set is another. The people who live there get absolutely steamrolled...

    For example, the intersection of Blue Island and 18th is one of those places. There have been multiple shows (too many to count) and over 5 movie shoots there this past year. Each time this happens, the production companies take over entire blocks in the neighborhoods (off set) for their personal parking, trailer parking, and truck parking. Then, adding insult to injury (after kicking all the residents out) they don't even use all of the space.

    This would be a lot better if the Chicago Film Office actually did a service for the people of our City! They are only chartered to roll the red carpet out for outsiders and only have staff to rubber stamp applications given to them by Hollywood. (I confirmed this in multiple calls.) They do not limit shoots at particular locations, make sure the closed space is actually being used, or move the ancillary parking around from shoot-to-shoot. (So the same blocks keep getting hit for parking and catering.) When it rains and shoots are canceled, the "No Parking" zones stay up (even when the streets are empty) and the residents still get ticketed.

Pilsen is NOT a Movie Set

Is anyone else ticked off by the constant shooting of TV shows in our area? Those involved with the productions (The Chi, Empire, Chicago PDFireMedJustice, ad infinitum) show little respect for the folks whose lives they constantly interrupt. In Pilsen, seldomly does a week go by when The Chi isn't hogging blocks upon blocks of commercial parking space. Do they feed the most expensive meters in America? All one has to do is to try walking past their cables, equipment,...

Is anyone else ticked off by the constant shooting of TV shows in our area? Those involved with the productions (The Chi, Empire, Chicago PDFireMedJustice, ad infinitum) show little respect for the folks whose lives they constantly interrupt. In Pilsen, seldomly does a week go by when The Chi isn't hogging blocks upon blocks of commercial parking space. Do they feed the most expensive meters in America? All one has to do is to try walking past their cables, equipment, and indifferent personnel to feel their disdain for residents.
We don't want you here.
I don't want you in Pilsen.
Cinespace is but a mile away. Go there.

To digress a bit, what's with the resurgence of gangs and their ilk in Pilsen? Every other wall, building, sidewalk, or trash can is tagged with their graffiti. Where is asswipeman Danny Solis? There must be a lull in counting ill gotten gains to see to some of these neighborhood concerns, no?
When is election day? I've got to wake up my dead relatives and drag them to the polls.

And Can the Soda Tax!

That is all for now. Thanks.

vote davis out of office

we dont need danny davis in office anymore eliminating the tax breaks for education. davis is out of touch.

https://capitolfax.com/2017/11/28/davis-whacked-over-tax-vote-impact-on-illinois-higher-education/

    News-Gazette ... [US Rep. Rodney Davis], whose congressional district includes the University of Illinois, three other public universities, four private universities or colleges and several community college districts, said he was "cautiously optimistic" the tax break would be retained. I think the total number of universities and colleges in Davis' district is 13.

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.

Where to sell used goods locally?

I would like to get rid of some decent electronics that are used but probably still have some value. (55" TV, laptops, etc).

Anyone know of a good place around Pilsen / Bridgeport that buys and resales used goods? (aside from Craigslist, etc)
