Improvements Near the Thorndale Red Line Stop?

There’s been a real buzz about issues and criminal activity near Thorndale and Broadway recently, so I wanted to share this positive assessment that another reader submitted.

Hello. Just wanted to send along an update regarding the Thorndale train stop. The last few days, I’ve seen a noticeable decline in the number of people hanging out by the stop in the mornings. A couple of weeks ago there were at least 5 or 6 people standing around the station, this week I’ve only seen two or three. Also, I got off the train this evening at 6:15 PM and when I got to the street there was a police officer sitting in his Chicago Police cruiser, parked right outside the train entrance. And not a loiterer in sight. I think the Chicago PD is starting to catch on, thanks to the efforts of community members and blogs like yours. Keep up the great work!

I’m hoping this trend continues, and we will do all we can to keep the community informed of any further developments.
