Gun shots and drag racing, 1:15 a.m., 7/8/2018

Anyone hear anything like this on Archer near Lock Street? The drag racing is one thing, but the gunfire/racing combination was a first for me since I’ve been here.

  • And have for as long as I can remember...Just part of every day life. Drag racing car and crotch rockets shooting guns ahhhhh no. That's dangerous and can get an innocent person killed. Train horn to my knowledge has never killed anyone.... Have a good day....Reality

    __

    You sir are a classic definition of a troll.

    Consider yourself <MUTED>

  • The “drag racing” has been going on for years. They come from loomis and shoot down Archer and end up in the Mariano’s parking lot almost every Saturday night around 1:30/2:00am.

    Not sure about the gun shots but if it’s the same group they haven’t had issues like that as far as I remember.

Heavy on Protest ... Light on Action

As this weekend's anti-violence protest came and went without much of a whimper, I couldn't help but be shocked by some of the talking points and reports coming out of the event.

Among the many "demands" I saw listed: More Economic Development.

"Wait", I thought to myself, "more economic development???"

Correct me if I'm wrong, but these are the same South Side communities currently fighting against the Obama center, correct? These are the same South Side communities who protested the...

As this weekend's anti-violence protest came and went without much of a whimper, I couldn't help but be shocked by some of the talking points and reports coming out of the event.

Among the many "demands" I saw listed: More Economic Development.

"Wait", I thought to myself, "more economic development???"

Correct me if I'm wrong, but these are the same South Side communities currently fighting against the Obama center, correct? These are the same South Side communities who protested the opening of the new Mariano's, correct? These are the same South Side communities that -- anytime anyone comes along and proposes new development -- they launch into a tirade about "gentrification", "getting pushed out", etc, etc, right?

I don't get ... are they trying to be "ironic" with these demands given most of the pushback for new development(s) comes from within these communities themselves?

Unauthorized No Parking Sign?

There is a grassy event space behind the gate and they posted this no parking sign on their gate. It is not a sloped curb and there is bike racks in front of this gate so there is no need to have that sign since no cars will ever go in. They also tend to put cones out to hold parking spots but it's a busy street (Morgan and 33rd) with limited parking as there are businesses, restaurants, galleries, homes...

There is a grassy event space behind the gate and they posted this no parking sign on their gate. It is not a sloped curb and there is bike racks in front of this gate so there is no need to have that sign since no cars will ever go in. They also tend to put cones out to hold parking spots but it's a busy street (Morgan and 33rd) with limited parking as there are businesses, restaurants, galleries, homes nearby; not to mention street cleaning twice a week and white sox restrictions. Called 311 and they were rude and said it may be a movers sign but this is not the case as there is no dates and it clearly does not say "City of Chicago" as other signs may say. Can anyone direct me as to what to do? Or whether it is even legal?

  • Official curb cuts are on file with the City. I also I recall that properties, which have them are supposed to be taxed extra on their property taxes.

    I would confirm with your Alderman and they should be able to advise what to do. (If it was an official zone, the Alderman would have to approve it.)
