The Back of the yards neighborhood will never be known as New City, to me, or the residents of this community, this neighborhood is the least violent of the top ten.

Back of the Yards is a diverse community where the gangs are at each other’s throats, this problem has a racial component to it, that nobody dares to mention.

The violence raging in this community is total and the weaponry being used to kill and maim people is shocking. Weapons like AR-15s and AK-47s are regularly used in gang shootings in and the communities that surround the back of the yards neighborhood.

The stats show of the 33 rifle related shootings, 46 people were shot and 13 were killed in these attacks. The battles raging in this neighborhood have a vendetta based history that goes back decades.

There are a lot of good people that live in this neighborhood that are trapped by the violence, it must also be realized these gangs could not survive for decades without some sort of support from within the community.

I was born and raised in the neighboring community of Bridgeport, I worked and partied in this neighborhood for decades. It is a shame to see the senseless violence raging without no end in sight in this neighborhood.

These videos start simple, but as you get closer to the most violent neighborhood they expand on all the issues plaguing the communities of Chicago.
