Lights Out

Most of the street lights on Paulina St. between 18th St. and Cermak Rd. are out. Anyone know why?
The area around Cooper School is especially dark. I've seen groups of young girls and elderly women walking cautiously in the area, while groups of young men linger about.
There is some construction going on with the roads (sewers) but it can't be impossible to have some temporary lights for safety.

    Don't do this ^. (Likely nothing will happen.)

    If anything breaks in the City, a 3-1-1 request will be routed directly to the City agency responsible for fixing the problem. You can even request text messages for updates. Just about every agency is responsive. (... except for Streets & Sanitation - good luck with them, if you ever need them...) Fortunately, there is a separate agency for street lighting.

    This is the direct link to the form for Street Lights out: https://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/cdot/provdrs/traffic_signals_andstreetlights/svcs/street_light_1_out.html

    For any other future request, you can go to this site: https://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/311.html or dial 3-1-1 from any phone.

fireworks or semi automatics?

I am at the 2200 block of 21st place. In the middle of the night there was a whole string of popping sounds in rapid succession. Did anyone hear?
It was difficult to tell if it was fireworks or semi automatic weapons.

  • Instead of training myself watching youtube videos on different gun sounds, I have decided to move out of the neighborhood.

  • I have been around Pilsen since the late nineties and have witnessed dozens of shootings, including seeing people die on the sidewalk. But I am not willing to deal with this anymore

With two new breweries, Pilsen is now the brewing capital of the south side

...new spots have opened within a mile of Moody Tongue: first Alulu, a brewpub near Ashland and Cermak, and then Lo Rez, a brewery that's been making beer since last fall but...

    click to enlarge Chicago's south side isn't exactly short on breweries, but they're a lot sparser than they are up north. Just a year ago there wasn't a single taproom in Pilsen, a problem that Moody Tongue remedied last fall by opening a tasting room.

'Get Out' Of Pilsen, Taggers Tell Filipino And White-Owned Businesses

Both S.K.Y., 1239 W. 18th St., and the building that houses Dusek's, Punch House and Thalia Hall, 1227 W. 18th St., were vandalized overnight. A single message to "get out" was scrawled on the Dusek's window, while S.K.Y. was hit much worse.

Anti-gentrification messages are nothing new to Pilsen businesses. In 2015, Bow Truss Coffee, 1641 W. 18th St. was vandalized five times in a single month.

    PILSEN - It was an early morning for S.K.Y. Restaurant chef-owner Stephen Gillanders, as he and a couple of employees spent hours removing graffiti from the building demanding the soon-to-open eatery "get out" of Pilsen.

  • And not a PEEP from the Alderman.
    Perhaps this type of bandstand isnt large enough for him.

  • How many more years will the city and Alderman Solis allow this 'alliance' of people to vandalize, hurt small businesses, divide a community? Shame on the City of Chicago and Ald Solis office, this has been allowed to continue with no acknowledgement from the current elected officials...

Pilsen dog park needed

New gal here and decided to post regarding a need for a dog park in Pilsen. There are doggies everywhere!

  • Todd Agosto Analyst/Investigator at Veritatem Cognoscere

    There are quite a few puparents who frequent Jackson Bark. All routes to and from are less congested than going to the dog parks around the loop or northside, plus free parking is available. Click the map icon at the bottom of the page for directions www.jacksonbark.com

    Agree with melirodgriguez! The small triangle next to the pool at Dvorak Park would be an ideal place for a dog park where many dogs are there most days anyway. I have taken my dog there many times and met other dog owners in the neighborhood who would love to have a dog park, new and old residents. For now, I do visit the dog park on Wabash in-between 16th and 18th which is a great park but a bit of a walking distance from Pilsen. There are really no dog parks for owners to use in the nearby area and it would be nice to have a designated space so dogs can run freely and safely.

Pilsen Open Studios XV

http://www.chicagotribune.com/hoy/ct-pilsen-artists-open-up-their-studios-on-their-quinceanera-20171020-story.html

"Although most artists are Latino, not everyone uses the same aesthetic and not everyone makes folk art. The Latin American community is just as complex in styles and philosophies as what you are going to find in the Art Institute of Chicago."

    Pilsen artists open up their studios on their 'quinceañera'
    15 years ago, Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events designated October as Chicago Artists' Month. They sent a letter to the muralist Héctor Duarte to propose the idea that he open up his workshop to the public, located across the street from the National Museum of Mexican Art, and offer him some publicity in their brochure.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com
  • In the 15 years of the Open Studios, many of us that live our life in Pilsen/ Heart of Chicago area. we are not allowed to visit the art studios. People with mobility disabilities are excluded due to no access to the studios locations. Maybe that should be included in such articles. Many of the businesses on 18th Street exclude those with disabilities on a daily basis,

    Diez y Ocho restaurant 'priced out', re-opens Friday for the last time
    'Diez y Ocho' is the name by which Michael Hernandez calls the neighborhood where he grew up, and it's what he decided to name his burger joint located on 18th St. and Damen Ave., a promising, but short-lived venture that could not survive the increasing cost of commercial space in Pilsen, he said.

What Is The Future Of Pilsen? New Plan To Be Unveiled This Weekend

After surveying more than 1,000 neighbors and community members, the Pilsen Planning Committee will reveal its findings at a 9 a.m. meeting Saturday at Benito Juarez Community Academy, 1450 W. Cermak Road.

    What Is The Future Of Pilsen? New Plan To Be Unveiled This Weekend
    PILSEN - It was 12 years ago when community leaders in Pilsen developed a plan for their beloved neighborhood. But a lot has changed in the dozen years that followed, so organizers went back to the drawing board to update their vision and pave the way for the next generation of residents.
