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

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?

    5 Bowls of Pho in Chicago that You Must Try
    Until recently, Argyle Street in Uptown, long the epicenter of Chicago's Vietnamese community, had the market cornered on pho (pronounced "fuh"). And to be sure, it's still one of the city's premier destinations for those seeking a taste of Vietnam's famously meaty soup, which is typically made with a long-simmered beef bone stock and served with fresh, leafy accompaniments.

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.
