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.

Dangerous street crossing Lake Park 53rd st and 55th

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!!!

Two more boys likely face more serious charges after a University of Chicago police officer was punched in his face while trying to break up a fight at 9:40 p.m. Tuesday night at 53rd Street and Lake Park Avenue.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel took in some of the mayhem when he unexpectedly showed up around 7 p.m. to eat dinner at A10, 1462 E. 53rd St.

His appearance added energy to the restless crowd, which set a fire in a dumpster behind the BP gas station at 5130 S. Lake Park Ave.

    400 Teens Rage In Hyde Park As Mayor Emanuel Watches From Restaurant
    HYDE PARK - Hundreds of teens gathered in Hyde Park to party as Mayor Rahm Emanuel looked on and Barack Obama's motorcade pressed through the crowds. Nearly 400 teens came out Tuesday night in a much toned down repeat of last year's "Halloween Purge," where more than 1,000 kids from across the city came to party and hang out and in the process get into fights and tear up parts of the neighborhood.

    The black teens charged were innocent and released from prison years later vindicated. Hence..."wilding" is an inappropriate and racially charged tag word.

    Jeffrey Littleton the "wilding" incident you referenced was of course a very infamous incident, but was by no means the only incident of "wilding".

    My roommate was attacked by a mob of very young teens on the lower East Side near Thompkin's Square Park.

    The teens you reference were yes, released from prison by a legal maneuver that had one of assault, robbery, attempted murder and gang rape perps confess to doing all these crimes himself - which was impossible. He was already in prison serving a long sentence for some other crimes, thus he had nothing to lose by this false confession.

    And the Central Park jogger that was gang raped and beaten nearly to death was one of many other victims who were beaten and robbed by this mob.

    Here in our Hyde Park Chicago community we've had 2 straight years of Halloween wilding mobs doing something renamed a "purge" - it's involved some beatings and many robberies with a mixture of local Kenwood students and teens from other neighborhoods.

    Some Chicago crime blogs are writing that these outside neighborhood mobs of teens are doing these crimes in Boystown as weekend recreation. At least with Hyde Park it's only been once a year on Halloween night.

Moving to Hyde Park

May be moving to Hyde Park...what are the best areas...places to go and people to see?

Thanks!

  • I_want_to_know In search of solutions!

    I think there are factors to consider when you decide to move according to your needs/desires such as:
    Schools, transportation, stores, parking, security, access to the lake/parks, # of neighbors in the same building, amenities in the building, rental costs, etc.
    So WHY did you pick HP?

  • What exactly are you looking for?

Hyde Parkers Brace For Another Halloween Surge Of Hundreds Of Teens

Hamilton said she’s worried there will be problems trying to move the crowds of teens who get off the bus or Metra on 53rd Street down to 59th Street and Woodlawn Avenue, the middle of the Midway Plaisance.

She said she’s worried about the groups of teens being moved through the neighborhood will cause trouble for the parents with younger kids who come from across the South Side to trick-or-treat on 59th Street and Harper Avenue.

The aldermen said the Promontory, 5311 S. Lake Park Ave., will also host a free Peace Fest show at 5 p.m. Friday with LiL Bibby and Premo Ktm.

Hamilton said she’s still looking for more volunteers and anyone who wants to help should come to 1453 E. 53rd St. on Saturday or Oct. 31. She said volunteers will be out on 53rd Street from 3 p.m. until crowds disperse on both days.

    Hyde Parkers Brace For Another Halloween Surge Of Hundreds Of Teens
    HYDE PARK - Hyde Parkers are preparing for hundreds of teenagers to descend on the neighborhood over two days for Halloween, and hope to avoid the vandalism and violence seen last year. Community organizers are expecting the crowds to grow from the estimated 500 teens last year, who came from neighborhoods across the South Side to hang out together on the safer confines of 53rd Street.
