    Activists repurpose newspaper box into food depository in Bronzeville
    The red-and-white newspaper box once held editions of the Frederick News-Post, a local newspaper for a northern Maryland county of the same name. Now 650 miles away, the box resides in a garden on the southeast corner of Calumet Avenue and 51st Street.

Eclectic Hyde Park mansion from the 1890s reduced to $1.49M

5620 S. Blackstone Avenue, Chicago IL [Estately]

    Eclectic Hyde Park mansion from the 1890s reduced to $1.49M
    Supposedly built for a "wealthy Dutch tile merchant" in the late 19th century, this unusual Hyde Park mansion is an eclectic mix of historic architectural details and, naturally, a smattering of old-school handmade tiles. Decorated with a healthy dose of animal print, the six-bedroom property features leaded stained glass windows, beveled mirrors, and an original living room fire place.

Airplane noise?

what flew over hyde park five minutes ago?

  • I_want_to_know In search of solutions!

    Your message does not automatically get stamped with a time so please I think it would help if the time was added to your post. I have always lived close to trains and buildings that make loud noises so I can tune certain noises out.
    What did that noise you heard sound like? Helicopter, plane or that Osprey aircraft.

  • I have noticed a VERY loud plane flying close overhead this weekend and last. The noise is so awful, I thought it would crash. Never actually saw it tho.

  • SW

    I assume you are talking about what you heard at around noon. Yesterday it was helicopters flying over the Bears game in celebration of Veterans's Day before the game started. I saw the helicopters on TV. Nothing to worry about.

    Black Mental Wellness Weekend in Chicago aims to open dialogue, provide accessibility
    Talking openly about mental health can be tough, and that's especially true in many black households. Compared to the general population, African-American people are 20 percent more likely to experience mental health issues, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Yet, only about 25 percent seek mental health care, compared to 40 percent of the white population.

I have had many near misses from being run over by high speeding cars when I am crossing Lake Park Avenue on 55th and 53rd street.

On 55th street this problem is West bound vehicles on 55th street have a green arrow to turn North on Lake park, then the light switches to just green and the walk sign comes on, the drivers just see green means go and the plow in to us pedestrians at high speeds.

On 53rd street the problem is just drivers don't acknowledge pedestrians and turn at high speeds turn South on Lake Park. I would like for Police to set up sting operations and ticked the very dangerous cars. I feel pedestrians who have to dodge these murderous speeding cars are within their rights to throw objects at the cars.

  • I_want_to_know In search of solutions!

    Would you want a Camera positioned at each of those intersections?
    I am sure our current mayor would love that!
    It could record cars violating the rights of pedestrians and issue either warnings or tickets. I have seen near misses of cars hitting pedestrians when turning but I have also seen pedestrians walk against the lights. I think pedestrians deserve tickets also when they almost cause accidents!
    More warning signs might also help drivers be more cautious!
    Be careful out there.

  • Hyde Park is just too @#$% overcrowded. And it's going to get worse. PERIOD!!!
