Positive Loitering Tonight, 7-8PM

Rain or snow, it's still a go! The call is out for positive loiterers to meet at Sheridan & Leland tonight from 7-8 PM.

The community continues to support the efforts to make Uptown safer for everyone. Bless their hearts, Cafe Too is offering free coffee and tea so positive loiterers can stay warm and toasty. Soggy Paws has donated doggie treats for the canine loiterers. And Uptown Chicago Commission sponsors it.

Positive Loitering is a great way to come out and meet new neighbors and start taking back our neighborhoods from those who are creating this violence. Please come out and show our strength as a neighborhood.

Bring your dog, bring your neighbors, bring your friends, bring your enthusiasm. The invitation is extended to all concerned residents of Uptown.


  1. This is the most recent post, and I don't know how to start a new thread.
    I have a good view of JJ peppers from my apartment, I've noticed the cops frequently arrested people there. There were two cop cars there, a third and a fourth arrived until the man was cuffed and taken away. Did they need this much manpower for one criminal? I mean, really.

  2. Petey, you don't know the details of the person being cuffed and you can't make assumptions as an officer. The thing that matters is that the arrest was made and the officers are safe and can continue to support our hood!

  3. Ok. I have to live here right now but I plan on leaving as soon as I can get away. I'll go to positive loitering next time you have one. Wherever I live I like to help out.

    Have you considered staying and trying to make it better?

  6. Mr. Newbie - Positive Loitering happens at that corner every Friday, 7-8. Hope to see you then!
