I strolled up to the Pizzeria around 10PM last night to see what was going on. There were lots of kids hanging out on this mostly uninhabited block of 7600 N. Marshfield. Sure enough, fireworks were exploding at the side of the pizzeria, teens in the white T-Shirt uniform were everywhere. And the street isn't that well lit either. It's the perfect place for kids to get into mischief and with even more places to run and hide. The basketball court, the park, two parking lots, the school areas, and alleys leading to other streets.
It's a mecca for kids with nothing to do but play Star Wars with illegal fireworks. A friend who lives in the Howard Theater building saw me last night, and was kept awake most of the night by the kids with nothing to do. I'm sure they're out of range of the blue light too.
South to Howard offers one relatively uninhabited stretch.
Gale Academy on the East side and Gale Annex on the West side offer no complainers at night.
The 7616 Marshfield building is either completely vacant or nearly vacant while undergoing rehab. There are two 3-flats behind the 7616 building, but one of those buildings has a nightly garage party that spills into the alley, so they would be reluctant to complain about unruly behavior or noise.
In the past, we were told by the police that no one ever calls about the alley party noise so they don't bother them.
