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)

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 Open Studios XV


"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.
  • 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,

    Diez y Ocho restaurant 'priced out', re-opens Friday for the last time
    'Diez y Ocho' is the name by which Michael Hernandez calls the neighborhood where he grew up, and it's what he decided to name his burger joint located on 18th St. and Damen Ave., a promising, but short-lived venture that could not survive the increasing cost of commercial space in Pilsen, he said.

what is that smell?

Has anyone noticed a steel smelting kind of odor on some mornings?

It's sort of metallic and ozone like.
Is there a factory nearby that could be emitting this smell?

I am near Oakley and 21st place.

  • I'd guess ice factory, too, but the tortilla factory has so many process systems. Maybe daily cleaning procedures or something?

  • Gotcha. Yeah I used to pass the chocolate factory on my way to work and sometimes it smelled pretty gross, not anything like chokolate. So, just like you said, depending what stage the processing is it can give out different odors.

The first café on Cermak ignite fears about gentrification


A major concern of community members is the potential displacement of the beloved tamale lady who has been selling Oaxacan tamales and champurrado in that corner for years.

    'Gentrifying' café to open on Little Village gang border
    When a vertical sign advertising "COFFEE" was installed prominently on Cermak Road over the weekend, it confirmed many resident's fears that a trendy café, not locally owned, would take over the dormant space that was once known as Latino Youth High School in the historical Marshall Boulevard in Little Village.

UIC students push for faculty diversity


In 1973, a group of Mexican-Americans and Puerto Ricans protested the displacement of Mexican households by the construction of the university, and despite many arrests, continued to push for Latino inclusion on-campus. The pressure led to the founding of the LCC and the Latin American and Latino Studies Program.

    40 years later, UIC students demand more Latinx representation
    Students of Mexican and Latin American descent from the University of Illinois-Chicago (UIC) gathered today to urge for more representation at the faculty and administrative level in the same place where, more than 40 years ago, students fought for the inclusion of Latin American Studies to the UIC curriculum.
