If the residents are so worried about them, Wrigley Field has only been there 100 years. I've lived by the Pacific West train line my whole life. Hell, every time I move, I move even closer to the tracks. Should I complain the trains are too noisy?
I remember the issue in the early 80's with the lights. Because Wrigley didn't have lights in '84 it cost them home field in the NL Championship and we all know how that series against the Padres turned out.
Do the residents not realize that if the Cubs left it would kill their neighborhood. What would they rather have......some more night games to put up with or a bunch of abandoned store fronts up and down Clark street?
