An Enriching Rogers Park Experience

... most came to the US via Malaysia, where I believe they lived in refugee camps. They are Rohingyan Muslims, an ethnicity that I previously knew little about - interestingly, I stumbled across an article about them last night while reading the Sunday Chicago Tribune (4/16/17, page 29), where I learned that the military controlled government has been systematically oppressing this group, murdering many (including the mother of one of my soccer players - a horror that he apparently witnessed, before fleeing), and, in genocidal fashion, trying to eliminate them from their country.

About the Author

Mike G's photoMike Glasser

Mike has a long term relationship with Rogers Park, having lived here at various times in his life, most recently returning to the neighborhood in August, 2009. While living here as a third year law student, he remembers drunken nights at Biddy Mulligan’s and hosting a couple of memorable parties that he, hypocritically, now forbids his own tenants from having. Years later, after completing his stint as a lawyer, Mike started investing in apartment buildings in Rogers Park (and elsewhere), and soon after, did what many newly divorced real estate investors do: he moved into one of his buildings. In 1992 Mike was one of the founding members of the Rogers Park Builders Group, an organization that he eventually headed for six years, until yielding those reigns three years ago. Around a decade ago, on a whim, he reserved the web site “Rogerspark.com,” which he has been developing ever since, and which co-hosts RP BizArts networking events. Mike is the proud father of three wonderful children, Amy, Mitch and Ella.
