    Chinese New Year 2018: Celebrate the Year of the Dog in Chicago
    As a young girl, I remember performing with my dance troupe beneath the pagoda in Chinatown Square for Chinese New Year, fluttering silk ribbons and pirouetting with long silk fans in mid-air. One of my fondest memories, though, is receiving red envelopes stuffed with lucky money - what kid wouldn't love that?

Obnoxious Loudness in Pilsen

How can people in certain parts of Pilsen tolerate Banda music and drunkeness in the middle of the night? How? The is a total lack of regard for people who have wake up early. Moreover, if you call the police, you become a target for their animosity. Does anyone know how to silence these folks without becoming a target?

  • Ringo712 Block Captain

    I live in La Villita so it's the same if not more so. It comes with the territory for living around Mexican Immigrants. It's a different way of life you need to get used to if you want to live Amongst different cultures

  • I've been here 6 years..a transplanted South Chicagoan.. Its a shame gentrification has softened peoples ears.. There are bigger fish to fry..but keep complaining about Banda music.. The assault rifles down Cermak Road during school hours bring perspective..

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!

    Hi New Neighbors...thank you for all of your feedback over this last month - we are moving to 60616 - renting at Cermak and Michigan. It is still a developing area - so, shopping and services won't be out my back door as they are in Streeterville. Without a car, I just have to plan better.

    New Question....what ward are we in? I have seen reference to Ward 3and Ward 4 And are there community/civic activities that I can get involved in?

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.

    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.

Ignore these scam artists!

I'm sure a lot of you here have had somebody knock on your door from Direct Energy or some other utility 'representative'. I'm tired of these guys knocking on my door and asking to see a copy of my utility bill. They are a scam company and a quick google search will show you that. I snapped a photo of this clowns ID so you can know NOT to speak to him when he knocks on your door. I hate to do it but I might have put up a 'No Soliciting' sign on my door since these guys seem to show up once every month or two.

  • Okay - I get it. Calling 311 or 911 would not be appropriate. Thank you.

  • Report it at your next CAPS meeting or they have a form on the CPD website where you can report it.
