A quick question...in my 40 years on the North side, I've never seen a building that has been allowed to have its downspouts discharge directly onto the sidewalk, thus creating a swamp in summer and an ice rink in winter for pedestrians to navigate. But the Assyrian Christian Church at 4447 N. Hazel does just that. There is no signage or markings of any kind on the building for contact purposes, but it is a functioning congregation...probably keeping a low profile amongst Islamic neighbors. Just something we have to live with?
