Video: ‘Very well-organized’ Thistle Street Stairs cleanup

10:59 AM: Thanks to Jake Jaramillo for the photo of the in-progress cleanup of the Thistle Street Stairs near Lincoln Park (stretching from 46th/Thistle up to Northrop/Thistle). Jake says there’s still time to go pitch in – “It’s very well-organized. They can put to work anyone who cares to join!”

3:23 PM: Added that clip produced by Wes Sauer of Cider Press Media, narrated by P.J. Glassey. We checked out the cleanup toward the end and indeed, it seemed all involved had a great time (and cleared away multiple bags of overgrowth, including some that was clogging a small drainage ditch alongside the stairs).

    A huge thank you to everyone that came out today. I was pleased and inspired by how many people showed up — I had no idea that there would be so many!

    Brilliant job! The stairs look amazing.

Sorry, comment time is over.
