Drove through south side area Englewood the other day - that is around 63rd and Halsted and generally stood around between 63rd and 71st up and down going towards Racine ave. I slowly drove the entire area with intentions to find out why property is so cheap around there. Found out there is nothing there and I would say over 70 percent abandoned. Empty lots, boarded up properties, no real stores. Everything is trashy and nothing but scumbags block to block. Has this area been given up on by society? Honestly appears like scene out movies with filth as far as the eye can see. Strangely the city replacing street lights and pumped $250 million in a college nearby that I wouldn't send anybody's kid to - go figure.

Why do you care what happens in that area - the city could care less anyway.

I care what happens there. It was a great area of the city, great architecture. Breaks my heart what those baboons did to it.

You are right there is great architecture and it is a shame those idiots have let it go to shame. I am saying why as in who cares anymore or as in it's a lost cause. Empty lots outnumber actual homes and nobody but thugs roam the street. The city tried pumping money into that neighborhood and even today continue to upgrade infrastructure by putting new lights and streets. They do this because those people think that will help just like when they claim we need better schools and such to improve. This area and these people won't change until they do something for themselves. It's a damn shame they don't have the ability to do school work but they can sing and rap till no end.
