So long Rogers Park architecture.



They knew how to build 'em in Rogers Park ... back in the 1910's and 20's.

Every week I see more and more beautiful, classic buildings, being torn down, burnt down, and destroyed forever.

Everyone that I speak with about this agrees, but why are we allowing this to continue?


Do I need to break out the Granada Theater pictures to make the point clear?

1523 W. Morse Avenue





1544 W. Morse Ave., the flyers don't seem to be working.



Heres a policing strategy: Hire more police officers and have them walk Morse Avenue 24/7.

Do you know what this is about?

Loyola University remembers the Granada Theater.



Actually I'm shocked that Loyola University, who had a hand in destroying the movie palace, would display this beautiful print so prominently.

Thank you.. i guess?




Sullivan School and open liquor.




Open liquor found in shopping cart behind Jordan School. There were even a few half finished bottles left for the kiddies.

How about if parents walk their kids home from school, so they don't have to be influenced by trash like this?

How about if regular citizens walked around for about an hour each night to pick up after the slobs?

Just a suggestion.


1622 W. Farwell Graffiti problem



Farwell Condominiums have a graffiti problem in their alley.

I called Mayor Daley's Graffiti Blasters to come in and remove or paint over the graffiti. I also contacted Groot about this issue at (800) 244-1977.
