Walk Through Bronzeville

On 39th and Indiana at 5:00 p.m. a sea of people exit the Green-line, most headed to parked cars along Indiana Ave. It is among the last streets in Chicago that doesn’t have parking meters. Many exiting the Green-line live within walking distance but feel it safer to drive home instead of walking.After rush hour Bronzeville is quiet with the exception of a few hot spots, only a few of having positive attributes. Mandrake Park, the running-track on 39th and Cottage Grove, 47th St., 43rd and Cottage, and the corner of 39th and King Dr., where Baba’s a fast food restaurant, a barbershop, and liquor store reside.Bronzeville is unlike communities like Andersonville, Lakeview, Lincoln Park, or Rogers Park, retail meccas. There is not much foot traffic within Bronzeville. Occasionally do you see mother’s strolling their babies for sheer pleasure, parents out with their children or, people walking to the grocery store. Typically Bronzeville residents walk with intention, to get to a destination like the “L” station or bus stop to leave the neighborhood. Slowly but surely the culture is changing, residents are beginning to walk dogs and socialize with neighbors along Martin Luther King Dr. On the surface it does not look as if there is much to do, but if you dig there’s quite a bit to take advantage of in Bronzeville. Generally people do things outside of the community- grocery shop, dine, shop, and go to the theater.Terry Young recently completed the renovation of a 10,000 sq. ft. events and fitness facility at 4321 S. Cottage Grove Ave., called The Connection, his mission is to promote a relative comfort in the way Bronzeville residents move throughout and celebrate our neighborhoods, “fitness is an excellent way to achieve this,” says Young.The Connection is also the home of TSen Dojo. The Connection focuses on connecting people through fitness, fun, business, and networking. Terry Sensei and collaborator have taken on the challenge of organizing a running tour of many of Bronzeville’s historical sites.It’s not a continual run; participants stop to catch a breath and get a history lesson. They got the idea after reading an article that featured what he likes to refer as community activists or “positive loiterers” as they are referred. They chose not to stand by and not watch violence take root in their neighborhood, so they joined together to do something about it. Piggybacking on groups like Critical Mass, a bicycling event typically held on the last Friday of every month in over 300 cities around the world.Instead groups of bikers reclaiming the streets, Young intends to run to reclaim his neighborhood. He is also a resident of Bronzeville. His tour narrators depict the legacy of the near south side as the tour winds through the streets of Bronzeville. They stop at historic sites, homes, churches, and sample local restaurant fare. Cost to participate is $25.There are others within the community advocating for healthy change. Tsadakeeyah Emmanuel and partner created a non-profit called Urban Juncture which currently has begun and urban garden at 343 E. 51st St. that is open to the public, on private land. They have acquired property across the street from the garden and plan to open a restaurant by the spring of 2011.In the works is Majani a vegan restaurant located 300 E. 51st, a restaurant that features southern cooking, and a smoke house. This corner needs lively activity, says Tsadakeeyah Emmanuel. Currently there exists, Babas, a barber….. “Our goals are to create 100 jobs in order to revitalize the community,” says Emmanuel. Tsadakeeyah isn’t intimidated by Bronzeville, and hopes to bring back an element of fun to his community.Bronzeville is surrounded by Chinatown on the northwest, Bridgeport just west, Fuller Park located at the south west corner and Hyde Park and Woodlawn just south. If you keep going east you eventually reach Lake Michigan. Bronzeville, the Metropolis as it was once and continues to be referred as is the center of some of Chicago’s most distinctive communities.Bronzeville has an interesting story of its own to tell, which can be seen in its architecture. Among them are the art deco home of the former Chicago Bee newspaper, now a Chicago Public Library branch; the Eighth Regiment Armory, now a Chicago Public Schools military academy; and the Wabash Avenue YMCA, former home of the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, one of the first groups devoted to African-American studies.Historically Bronzeville’s boundaries have been considered to be 31st Street and McCormick Place on the north, Cottage Grove Blvd. to the east, 65th St. to the south and the I-90/94 corridor to the west. The community encompasses portions of the Douglas and Grand Boulevard communities a 491 acre district. Three aldermen serve in the community 2nd Ward Alderman-Robert Fioretti, (3rd)Pat Dowell and Toni Preckwinkle (4th).Between 1960 and 2000, Bronzeville lost a large portion its residents and housing base, most major businesses closed or moved out, and virtually all of its quality retail and entertainment venues shut down. Many of the economic problems still persist. The median income is $27,800, according to the U.S. Census.Bronzeville was granted $42 million in public dollars to attract a minimum of $116 million in private investments. Priorities include historic preservation, business expansion, and cultural projects that promote the area’s attractiveness as a place to live and do business. Bronzeville is well on its way to once again reclaim its status as The Black Metropolis.Where you gonna run? Bronzeville has much to offer.Lakefront

Your Money Matters – Are You Wise Enough to See What You’re Spending For?

It’s payday…The time when employees are so looking forward to have their work done and go to their favorite restaurant, get their hands on the coolest hot-new gadgets, or get their sleeves on the latest fashion they’ve been wanting.Here’s a fact: It’s just too easy for us to pull out the cards in our pockets and buy what we want. The cycle goes on and on. Ignorant, we continue to go for what would satisfy or interest us, get a new car, enjoy luxury with credit cards and only to be surprised in the end that we are short to spend for something that is of much more importance. If caught in an emergency, we are left with no option but to borrow money. There! You realized that you can’t afford to pay for everything that you had…you are stuck in credit card debt.We can never see that we can never afford to be in debt unless we are already caught up in its snare. It is therefore necessary for us to put the danger of being in debt at bay.Where do we start?We should be wise enough to prioritize on things that are of necessity. If you are a compulsive or impulsive buyer, this is a must-follow rule.Start by creating an itemized list of all your expenses, in their order of importance. Then, classify them whether they are needs, wants and desires.Here is how we differentiate the three:Needs – These are none other than life’s basic necessities. Food, clothing, employment, home, medical coverage all fall into this category.Wants – These include making choices about the quality of goods we consume: dress clothes versus work clothes, steak versus hamburger, a new car versus a bus ride.Desires – These are the goods and choices we may not be essential to our survival, safety or well-being.Spend money mostly on your needs so you can get your credit cards paid off with the occasional “wants” for a reward for good spending behavior. Then add some wants and desires that you pay for with cash when you have paid off a credit card or two. Try this and you’ll be sure that you’ll never find yourself in trouble of being in the debt trap.

8 Essentials for Every Man’s Closet

Think your wardrobe is in need of some new and exciting changes? Want to buy some new digs but don’t have a ton of money. Instead of spending all your time and money on shirts and pants you can only wear every now and then, try to purchase a few key pieces that can take you from day to night and weekday to weekend. Here are eight clothing essentials every man needs to have in his closet.

Khaki Pants: A good pair of dress pants that can be worn to work is essential to every man’s closet. Choose a pair of well tailored khaki’s that you can wear to work, church, out for the evening, or to a casual luncheon. These pants can quite possibly take you from your morning coffee to your after work martini all year round.

Dark Blue Jeans: Invest in a quality pair of dark blue jeans that fits well. Since many work places have adopted casual Friday policies, a pair of nice dark blue jeans is a great addition to your wardrobe. Pair you jeans with a sweater, a stylish button down shirt, or even a polo shirt. A pair of dark jeans is also a great addition to your weekend wear, especially for casual dates.

Sweater: A solid, neutral color sweater is a must for any man trying to complete his closet. Look for something with either a V neck or a traditional collar. A simple wool sweater can be worn alone; with a pair of corduroys on the weekend; or with button down shirt underneath for situations where you need a little more class.

White Button-down Shirt: Everything on this list will look great with a white button down shirt. A white button down shirt is something you really need to have. Choose one that is well tailored. Wear it underneath your sweater, by its self, or with your suit and tie. If you’re wearing it for a special occasion, class it up with a pair of cufflinks.

Trench Coat: A flexible yet classy coat it imperative to your wardrobe from fall to spring. A trench coat is an excellent choice for several reasons. For starters, this coat can be worn to work, formal occasions, or just to run to the coffee shop. The climate versatility of the trench coat is another great reason to add it to your closet. Many trench coats are water proof to a certain extent making it perfect for rain or snow. They are also light and therefore can be worn in the spring with just a t-shirt, or during the chillier months with a sweater underneath. When choosing a color, try to find something in a neutral color like black or brown.

Black Suit: Life is full of surprises, and often time you are forced to dress for a certain occasion or event with little notice. Whether you have the excitement of a job interview or the sorrow of a funeral, you often don’t have time to run to the store and buy something to wear. Having well tailored black suit will ensure that you’re always prepared for situation that require you to be well dressed on little or no notice

Solid Ties: solid, neutral colored ties are a great thing to keep on hand for spur of the moment business meetings, classy nights out on the town, or simply to wear every day to work. While colorful patterned ties are great fashion accessories, a simple tie is more useful for everyday occasions.

Dress Shoes: While you wear semi casual shoes to work, you should make sure you have a pair of dress shoes on hand at all times. I would suggest purchasing pair in black to make sure they match with your suit, jeans, and khakis. Find a quality pair that is comfortable and simple so you can wear them for any dressy occasion.
