end of an era

Demolition of the last high rise of the Robert Taylor Homes housing project is nearly done. (Sorry about the fuzziness of this image. The train window was not exactly pristine.)

This begs the question of whether the city government really thought about the consequences of demolishing so many units of subsidized housing in such a short time. Is there any connection between the displacement of so many gangbangers and the increased violence in other neighborhoods (such as Rogers Park), or is this a coincidence? Your $0.02?
