When they started building $7m homes on the next block to where my 1898 loft building is, I thought this was a good thing. Recently they have slowly started to become occupied and one in particular, after a nose through a window, was looking particularly cool I thought. Then during the last couple of weeks a number of shall I say pimped-up looking vehicles were to be seen parked outside this particular house, whereas the others were still tinged in privacy.
Anyway last night it became obvious to who lived there when my road was cordoned off by cops. "Miami Heat basketball player Antoine Walker was robbed at gunpoint in his Chicago home Monday evening."
So much for improving the neighbourhood eh?
