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)

Lights Out

Most of the street lights on Paulina St. between 18th St. and Cermak Rd. are out. Anyone know why?
The area around Cooper School is especially dark. I've seen groups of young girls and elderly women walking cautiously in the area, while groups of young men linger about.
There is some construction going on with the roads (sewers) but it can't be impossible to have some temporary lights for safety.

    If anything breaks in the City, a 3-1-1 request will be routed directly to the City agency responsible for fixing the problem. You can even request text messages for updates. Just about every agency is responsive. (... except for Streets & Sanitation - good luck with them, if you ever need them...) Fortunately, there is a separate agency for street lighting.

fireworks or semi automatics?

I am at the 2200 block of 21st place. In the middle of the night there was a whole string of popping sounds in rapid succession. Did anyone hear?
It was difficult to tell if it was fireworks or semi automatic weapons.

  • Instead of training myself watching youtube videos on different gun sounds, I have decided to move out of the neighborhood.

  • I have been around Pilsen since the late nineties and have witnessed dozens of shootings, including seeing people die on the sidewalk. But I am not willing to deal with this anymore

Pilsen dog park needed

New gal here and decided to post regarding a need for a dog park in Pilsen. There are doggies everywhere!

  • Todd Agosto Analyst/Investigator at Veritatem Cognoscere

    There are quite a few puparents who frequent Jackson Bark. All routes to and from are less congested than going to the dog parks around the loop or northside, plus free parking is available. Click the map icon at the bottom of the page for directions www.jacksonbark.com

    Agree with melirodgriguez! The small triangle next to the pool at Dvorak Park would be an ideal place for a dog park where many dogs are there most days anyway. I have taken my dog there many times and met other dog owners in the neighborhood who would love to have a dog park, new and old residents. For now, I do visit the dog park on Wabash in-between 16th and 18th which is a great park but a bit of a walking distance from Pilsen. There are really no dog parks for owners to use in the nearby area and it would be nice to have a designated space so dogs can run freely and safely.

Pilsen Open Studios XV

http://www.chicagotribune.com/hoy/ct-pilsen-artists-open-up-their-studios-on-their-quinceanera-20171020-story.html

"Although most artists are Latino, not everyone uses the same aesthetic and not everyone makes folk art. The Latin American community is just as complex in styles and philosophies as what you are going to find in the Art Institute of Chicago."

    Pilsen artists open up their studios on their 'quinceañera'
    15 years ago, Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events designated October as Chicago Artists' Month. They sent a letter to the muralist Héctor Duarte to propose the idea that he open up his workshop to the public, located across the street from the National Museum of Mexican Art, and offer him some publicity in their brochure.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com
  • In the 15 years of the Open Studios, many of us that live our life in Pilsen/ Heart of Chicago area. we are not allowed to visit the art studios. People with mobility disabilities are excluded due to no access to the studios locations. Maybe that should be included in such articles. Many of the businesses on 18th Street exclude those with disabilities on a daily basis,
