No one hanging out on the corner,no threat of a drive-by shooting, no one selling socks from a shopping cart...
Is there a reason why we can't even have the simplest of holiday decorations on the light poles down Broadway? I always thought that Shiller nixed that, but still nothing. Is it up to the Chamber? Lack of $$$?
Where are all the men selling narcotics? Does anyone besides me care that there is selling of street drugs happening in broad daylight at wilson and broadway? I was going to the dunkin to get a coffee and interrupted a drug deal. That odd part is that I was made to feel uncomfortable instead of the people commiting a felony.
Call the police!! Are u kidding? If you care so much-complain to the alderman and the Mayor.
Jeff -- why not call or contact Uptown United and ask about the holiday decorations and let us know? Jeffrey -- did you call 911? What happened? Funny that you think the 1950s were idyllic. Google Uptown in 1950s and read how depressed and poor it was.
There would be a better sense of neighborhood had the Richardsonian Romanesque structure on the east not been torn down and replaced with a suburban mid-century dump.
Wouldn't it be great if a developer bought that NE corner and put in a nice development similar to the building that was there? We have been hearing that there is interest. Once the Wilson L rehab begins, it will be much more desirable.
