There was a very loud group of people shouting at each other last night Wednesday July 11th at 2:30 AM outside of the Cove, then moved on to 55th and Everett. This crowd shouted and fought with each other for at least 20 minutes. I called the University of Chicago police, then forwarded me on to the Chicago police. Did anyone else get awoken last night.

Any idea why the trains have started honking in the past 24 hours? It kept us up all night. It seems to be Amtrak and the freight trains. This is the first time I can remember that they've started consistently honking while passing through Hyde Park.

Hi neighbors! Our sink in our Kenwood condo has become separated from the counter top and now we have a bit of a leak under the sink as well. We are looking for a good plumber that services the area. I know I could call roto-rooter, but I always find them impersonal and very expensive. I think the leak is causing a severe buckling in our kitchen laminate floors as well, so flooring professional recommendations are also appreciated!!!
