"Passionate About Uptown"

Outside the Loop radio gives Uptown Update and "passionate" Uptowners a tip of the hat this week for "so much participation that it's crazy!" Give it a listen here. It's all interesting; the Uptown segment starts around the 19:30 mark.

We give reciprocal kudos to Mike Stephen and Andy Hermann for covering our neighborhood and the Wilson Yard controversy without ever dragging it down to a classist/us-versus-them level. They've had guests like Marc Kaplan of Couraj and Molly Phelan from Fix Wilson Yard, each explaining their take on it.

If anyone's new to the Wilson Yard issue, or wondering about the history of the project, you can click on the "All Wilson Yard Stories" link under Hot Topics on the sidebar.

  1. What UPTOWN needs is some FOOT Officers during the Day, it sets the tone and keeps the bad guys on the run. They got foot officers at night but they are gone by 10pm. This would very much help improve UPTOWN.
