Icarus Investment Group

If anyone has done business with or has any information as a tenant in any building that has been recently acquired by this company, please give some info as to what has been your experience with them.

  • Mary Creamer Block Club leader on 51st Street

    They own 3 units in our building and I heard they are trying to acquire a 4th. The tenants don't seem to be unhappy but they haven't paid their assessments in over 6 months which is causing our association to have difficulty paying bills. If you have any info on them, please share but they are not looking good so far. I've seen they own a building on 54th and Prairie near the green line too.

  • Forcible entry detainers/ file a lien on the properties. If they are getting loans to purchase the units it will be hard because banks like to make sure Associations are in good standing. I would have the president of your association contact some attorneys.

  • They own a huge apartment building on 43rd & Michigan. My coworker has a client that lives there, total slum! I drove past the building and noticed the big Icarus management sign. I would definitely contact an attorney ASAP. Condo association has the right of first refusal as well. Are the units in foreclosure?

Black neighborhoods still see most bike tickets, police data show

Albert Lattimore, 49, who is black, has been ticketed twice for riding on the sidewalk — once in 2012 and again last December, according to police and court records. During the most recent stop, Lattimore was on the 300 block of East 47th Street in the Bronzeville neighborhood.

    Change the bike laws. Let people ride where they want. The police don't make the laws, they just try to enforce them. Obviously the police assigned to the districts with a higher amount of tickets are doing exactly what you pay them to do so why are you complaining. Is it their fault if the beat they are assigned to is a predominately black area.
    The cops assigned to a predominately white area stop a white guy riding on the sidewalk and he say's to the police "is this all you got to do? Why aren't you stopping the real criminals!". Then they call their alderperson or some other politician and complain about the police picking on them when they should be looking for the "real" criminals.
    Really JL - what do you know about racial profiling of blacks anyway. Your white dude.

  • Brian M Graceland West

    Places with more cops issue more tickets for this? Especially in poorer areas that could have less people who can afford cars? No way!

    Maybe there is profiling, maybe not, but it takes more analysis than this piece does to prove it.

    Black neighborhoods still see most bike tickets, police data shows
    The vast majority of Chicago bike tickets still go to cyclists in black neighborhoods, despite past criticism by community and cycling advocates that enforcement is uneven across the city. In 2017, about 56 percent of all bike tickets were issued in majority black neighborhoods, compared with 24 percent in Latino neighborhoods and 18 percent in white neighborhoods, according to Chicago police statistics.

Censorship on Everyblock - Common Sense Education/cultural reforms are needed

I advocating teaching our young people time tested standards of decency, promoting traditional education and positive music and culture.

I am making a complaint about censorship on Everyblock. I made an intelligent post opposing the worst forms of Rap music in the Chicago Public Schools and on Grammy and other awards shows. I advocating teaching our young people time tested standards of decency, promoting traditional education and positive music and culture.

Pretty much every successful adult I meet of all racial and ethnic groups agrees with these positions, and yet we are the ones who are censored, not the worst, most violent, hateful rap "Musicians".

This #*$&*# isn't even music as few rap "musicians" know how to play instruments or read music.

I'll support any Christian pastor, ex military veteran, grandmother from the South anybody that can step in and give our young people some positive direction in life - Catholic Nuns used to wash students mouths out with soap for using the vile language I hear in almost every single rap song - and this music seems to be infecting every part of society. When will it end? How long to the Bubonic plague in Europe last?

  • upen e31st and indiana av

    fully agreed. I felt the same when I recently visited my son's cps hosting an art show for their kids at evening. Whatever pop/rap music it was.. it was loud not only for kindergarteners but for all parents who also came to see art which was mostly the pictures drawn or taken by their kids.

  • Meh, your comment is a bit of a mixed bag ... I grew up on Punk Rock and listened to some pretty vile lyrics as a kid and I grew up just fine. Although, I would agree that today's Hip Hop has absolutely plummeted into god awful noise vs music....

    Meh, your comment is a bit of a mixed bag ... I grew up on Punk Rock and listened to some pretty vile lyrics as a kid and I grew up just fine. Although, I would agree that today's Hip Hop has absolutely plummeted into god awful noise vs music. Even Tupac (himself often raping about violence) had an underlining message of hope and betterment. He'd be disgusted that today's "artists" are only about face tattoos and posing in front of $100 dollar bills. You're never going to get rid of Hip Hop. And frankly, your comment comes across no different than the legions of white squares from the 40s/50s yammering on about how Rock N' Roll would be the downfall of civilization. However, what we CAN do is hope that today's generation rediscovers their music's roots, which were more based on conscious observations of life (urban and otherwise). Spitting rhymes and creating poetry of linguistic nuance is rather brilliant, and takes intellect. It's myopic to gloss over that fact, even if we both agree the overall message needs to discover new light.
