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?

    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..

Alley light not fixed as of June 2017 despite calling 311 3x and requesting service on-line 2x

I pay hefty Chicago/Cook County taxes and every year they increase-and yet, I can't get the city to fix the alley light. Twice I have seen it reported on-line with the status "closed". When I call 311 to complain they don't want to hear anything other than the address and click-they disconnect. Is this the norm? Does it usually take this long? Let's face it, our neighborhood is no longer safe and a dark alley is asking for trouble.

  • I am inclined to believe that the complaint may not be real and is using the platform to create conversation. Provide an address for the light that is out. I'll personally do my best to contact the city and make them aware of the issue and have it repaired. I...

    I am inclined to believe that the complaint may not be real and is using the platform to create conversation. Provide an address for the light that is out. I'll personally do my best to contact the city and make them aware of the issue and have it repaired. I like to help whenever I can. I have lived in Chicago 35 years and have seen the good and bad. Our city is not perfect but with a little push to our reps, we have to help ourselves to get things done.

    Dude really!? My complaint on this forum was based on the fact I went through the proper channels several times and nothing was done. I asked for suggestions. The fact that your butthurt because I didn’t give you my address, doesn’t give you a right to negate or even question my use of this forum. Get over yourself-YOU are not employed by the City of Chicago nor do you represent the City of Chicago. No one has to answer to you in order to add credibility to their concerns. Initially, what I thought was a nice gesture on your part, now has me wondering. No thanks-after your BS comment, stay clear of the area I live 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.

  • pbsene Local Business Owner, Tired American

    Right on! It creates way more jobs than just the overpaid actors - I have a good friend whose kids are both working behind the scenes on this show.

  • Pilsen/Heart of Chicago area have been part of movie & tv productions for decades. A few people that recently moved into area whine about many things that are not the real issues and concerns that actually effect our lives. The arts in general have thrived over the last few decades in our community, they add a great benefit to our community, and lives.

    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.

Archer ave & Francisco Safety Island

What alderman, city planner, or person was responsible for the safety Island installed at the intersection of Archer ave & Francisco?. This will impede the flow of the traffic on Archer and will create a real nice mess of traffic and air pollution during rush hour and winter driving. Why weren't residents notified of this? Was a permit issued for this waste of taxpayers money?

  • Fellow Resident-Non PC liflong B.P. resident.

    Who are they? Still want it out cause they did not advertise this well enough!

  • peter jachimiec over taxed homeowner

    2 years ago they had a hearing and they put it in now? How did they get the word out? In the Brighton Park Life news?

    Is That Turkey Hazardous to Your Health?
    Have you ever wondered how long food really lasts after preparation? How about that turkey dinner? Do the mashed potatoes, a hearty root vegetable, last longer than cranberries? As American's work weeks increase, currently 47 hours a week, prepared food has become the new national dinner.

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)
