Lately there's been a little too much room for cars on our street.
Normally it's nuts to buts attempting to park.
I don't have a car, but living down here for seven years I know that if you're not home and parked by 6:30, you'll be parking on the next block.
Something wasn't adding up.
Coincidentally, the trash on the parkway has dropped dramatically.
It wasn't until I walked east toward Stony Island and looked at the building next to the Astor Properties debacle did I figure it out:
I haven't seen anyone parking in front of or going in or out of the building in the past two weeks.
Because I normally take the Metra to work, I rarely pass by the other end of the block. But when I put my thinking cap on, it all made sense.
I bet you that building is going condo.
And as we all know, depending on who buys the units and/or who moves in that may or may not be a good thing for the 'hood.
If the Astor Properties building is any indication, we may have another weed choked yard in the near future.
I'll keep you posted.
