People aren't showing up on the south side because they're staying inside trying not to get gunned down in the streets by the raging gang-bangers.
The 5-month Red Line shutdown plan is a surprise to the Chicago White Sox. U.S. Cellular Field has its own stop -- Sox-35th -- which will be closed.
"More than 15-percent of our fans use the Red Line from the north every game. We don't have a plan, but look forward to working with the city and CTA to develop a plan," a team spokesperson told ABC7.
Fernigal - are you also a UChicago student?
No, but Mrs. McGunnigle is in the final throes of her PhD. I'm just a hanger-on.
That makes three of us in the Hyde Park area? Probably more. (also a uchicago student here, but going to be living in London next year)
Baseball qua baseball is simply nowhere near as popular as its imagined to be in some parts.
Are you an undergrad doing the British History, Lit, & Culture program? Probably not, because you say "next year" and that's just in the fall quarter. I ask because a friend of mine is teaching in it.
not incredibly expensive
My first week moving here, knowing nothing about the city, i went to check out apartments on the far south side. Pulled over by 3 different cops in the first 20 minutes. Theres just no expectation that white people will be down there unless theyre buying drugs.
Chicago is a great city, but the level of segregation blows away anything ive ever seen. It really is two cities stuck together.
One nice thing about Chicago is that Boston-area provincialism fits very nicely into Chicago provincialism.
Chatham? Aka the black Copland, white Copland being Beverly. I maintain that Lem's on 75th makes the best ribs in the city. And I pity the north siders who aren't familiar with the glory that is Harold's.
Whose idea was this to shut down the CTA Red line at that time of year, given that Sox-35th is probably an important station? Couldn't this has been done between, say February and July, thus minimizing the problems for Chisox attendance (which one would think brings in quite a bit of revenue for the city)? And might the Sox work with CTA to provide game-day shuttle buses from the station where Red line service will end north of the park, as well as a bus line serving station areas south of the park?
I can't speak to whether the CTA provides game-day specific shuttles or plans to -- but normally, when they close an El station for an extended period, they do tend to provide bus service that more or less mimics the stops in between closed stations.... I would assume they would plan on the same here, though, I'm less familiar with the surface street situation around these closed stops.
