Harvey is a drug infested Ghetto!! It is dangerous just driving thru that run down town. The Police are corrupt just like their Mayor! It was decent 30 years ago but at the moment, it is a war zone. A young woman was shot to death while sitting in her car at the red light near 159th Halsted a few months ago. The Police still haven't made an arrest. You have Latin kings, Ms-13 and GD gangmembers everywhere.. Harvey is a joke!!!

On the plus side, the value of the property probably went up after the explosion.

I'm glad no one was seriously hurt, but Harvey is a rough area. My friend got his car smashed by a hit & run driver while driving thru there last summer and the cops made it out to be his fault. I stopping at a red light in Harvey is the same as asking for a car wreck.

Too bad natural gas doesn't run through copper pipes.

It's as likely a meth-lab as anything else caused the explosion in the house in that pathetic town of Harvey.
Harvey, Robbins, Maywood, Ford Heights, Hazel Wood, Hillcrest, etc, etc; all blights upon the face of the earth inhabited by repeat-offenders, illiterates, unwed-wombs {can't call 'em 'mothers' now can we}, gang-bangers, human {only just / kind of} lanfill in waiting...
What a pathetic commentary of our society, county and state - that people are reduced to living such as in these 'communities.'

Damn, I thought this story was about a piece of History, Know as Harvey Houses that ran along the railroads.

Not about some crack house blowing up!

Why not torch the whole town? Return it to prairie lands and improve it.
Scorched earth... What we need is a Sherman's March through the south 'n southwest sides and the south, southeast 'n southwest suburbs. Torch 'em and move on.
