May I ask what the Danny's liquor thing is? I only moved here in June from Uptown. I couldn't find anything via the google. Is it the Danny's on Western? Thanks!

How about Parkside liquor store in front of Koz park it's always flooded with drunks, crackheads and pervs ! They haven't closed that one down yet and it been open for yrs. Everyday those nasty people are outside buying liquor from there and sitting by that building or park benches pissing and crapping in odd areas around the park. Including gangbangers that tag inside and outside that little store. I seen police today pull over some gangbangers near ridgeway n Diversey about 4:30 pm. I was soo pleased the police is pulling over these punks. I even observed what house their selling drugs from near there. Good work to the police :) Diversey area is looking ghetto because of these people , wish there was a good solution to deal with this nuisance. It's not easy though. I think the police should target gang hangout spots around Koz and Diversey and close it down. Easy said then done though. Still happy to see police doing something's about it.

Yes Danny liquor is on Western 2200 block

Dr. P said...

So what's the deal there? Specifically? I've been there and the prices always fluctuate and their age verification is a joke. I didn't like the vibe so I go elsewhere for supplies, but I'm curious about the specifics. If it's a long story no one cares to tell, is there a link or something I could follow? Just curious 'bout something 3 blocks from me. Thanks.

Dr P., it's the one at Milwaukee and Ridgeway. They just opened up a couple of months ago. There's a lot of problems with them selling to already intoxicated individuals. These people they sell to are the Milwaukee drunks, who also happen to be homeless. By them selling to these individuals, it's causing a lot of problems on Milwaukee and on Ridgeway in the 2900 block. We've had this issue before with several other liquor stores in the last couple of years, and it was way worser than it was now, in my opinion. At one point, we had three liquor stores all selling to these people at one point.

Anonymous 7:27, Parkside is the next one we're gonna target, I think. We've been watching that store very closely, and are aware of what they're doing. We're also going to target Koz Park in the near future. And I'm glad to hear the police pulled over the punks. I wish I could've seen it. I live right by that intersection, but missed it. Which house was it that you saw the drug sales coming out of (send me an email with the address, please)? I agree that Diversey looks ghetto. In fact, the whole stretch of Diversey between Central Park and Pulaski is the worst part of Diversey. I also think the police should target the gang hangouts, and I can name those off the top of my head.

Just so we're all clear, I am NOT talking about the Danny's on Western. We're talking about the one at Milwaukee and Ridgeway. Dr. P, I posted a reply to you just now.

Gosh that Danny's store on Milwaukee needs to go this drunks just don't get enough until they enter that store! Those stores owners don't care because those drunks and crackheads pays the rent and sales! That's crap when it comes to the community that has to see and go through the stuff those drunks and cracks bring. Empty bottles, drunks laying around. That's ugly, For our neighborhood. As for the gangbanging house i'll be glad to let u know and other spots around there. It's time for them to get runned out just like they do to innocent neighbors and innocent people who walk down Diversey, at Koz and the inner streets around our neighborhood. Tired of our neighborhood getting taken over by these stupid punks! There's 2 buildings by springfield and Diversey across a street from eachother tagged up. It's soo ugly to see that. How they could ruin the image of a neighborhood.
