Mike Stephen talks to a resident about the possible closing of the Wood St. police station, chats about sustainable transportation with the co-founder of GridChicago.com, and travels to a new unique art gallery in Wicker Park.
In Mayor Emanuel’s proposed budget, three Chicago police stations are on the chopping block. We visit the Wood St. station in the 13th District (Wicker Park/East Village) to hear from Anne, a concerned citizen. She started on online petition to save the station here.
