As of this morning there have been 864 people confirmed shot. Not shooting incidents, that's 864 hits! This is already 218 more than all of last year.

Why is this happening?

It's confined to a couple of areas in town to which no tourist would ever venture. The bigger issue for tourists is the perpetual lockdown here that seems to never end.
I’m beginning to wonder if it’s China buying off the idiots that speak Idiocracy? I’m beginning to suspect China is behind leftists politicians and RINOs. Makes more sense, especially if the paid trolls here critique this with conspiracy theory and tin foil crap!

I love Chicago. All that crap is on the West Side. Not where I stay. Chicago is one of America's great cities. NYC without the attitude .

Near West Side and South East Chicago, home to some of the worst neighborhoods in the country.

agreed, but I don't go there when I visit. Just like Baltimore, they have some really rough areas, but a lot of great areas. Most big cities have them. Hell, I live in Dallas, and W. Dallas is really rough.

I used to live there. It is a bona fide ****hole. People suck. Roads suck. Pre Covid there was even a Saturday rush hour. It takes eternity to go anywhere. Every road is a toll road (Ok not every but any road you want to actually be on). It's painfully expensive.

It's a great place to visit if you fly in, go directly to the Gold Coast and stay about 48 hours...in the late spring or early fall.

If you are looking for ammo, it is a good destination.

I divorce myself from worrying about places like this. If the people there want law and order they will have to demand it and make themselves accountable at the ballot box.

If you go to the south side of Chicago which is the baddest part of town,
you better beware of a man named Leroy Brown.

Deep dish pizza at Lou's is enough to make it an awesome trip. Sitting in Wrigley with a couple of cold ones is a great way to spend a summer afternoon.

Not so hot take; deep dish pizza is disgusting. If you have to eat it I guess Lous is fine.

Also; Wrigley is a hole in a super cool neighborhood. It's one of those stadiums that is awesome to visit because it's nostalgic; it's a dump that makes you truly appreciate a modern stadium, however.

When were you last at Wrigley? It was a dump the first time I visited in 2009, but the improvements in the last 4-5 years have made a difference. Atmosphere and history makes up for lack of some of the modern accoutrements.

It's been a minute. When I lived there they literally had chicken wire holding up parts of the exterior.

They've fixed the exterior, but last time I was there in 2019 there was still some chicken wire holding up the concrete under the upper deck down the left field line.

It's been under renovation for during the off-seasons. Baseball stadiums have been in a state of improvement for the last 20 years. Wrigley is an old building. Seems impossible to make it as modern as Atlanta or a Minute Maid.


I last went in 2019, it holds emotional respect for me.

I've not been to the new Rangers park, yet. The Ballpark was amazing.

Unfortunately it has spread all over the city, including Michigan Ave. The West and South side are the worst.

This is a huge part of Chicago's problem.
