|Mayne Annex @ Morse & Wayne. (1300 block of Morse)|
High profile projects like the Mayne Annex and the Mayne Stage along with community pressure and increased policing has forced the drug traffic away from Morse & Wayne. Over the past year there have been shootouts at Morse & Greenview presumably (and now confirmed) over drug dealing turf. A dark shadow is being lifted that has hung over Morse for many years. Drug dealing has no place on today's Morse.

I am pleased to report that Chicago Police late last week arrested 12 suspected gang members and shut down a drug market on the 1500 block of W. Morse Avenue. Arrest warrants were issued for another eight individuals."
