CHICAGO — It’s been a challenging week as Chicago mourns another loss in the Fire Department.

Firefighter Andrew Price died Monday battling a fire in Lincoln Park, the fourth firefighter to die in action this year.

Elsewhere in the city, a popular brewery is shutting down, protesters showed support for Palestinians, a Black-owned grocery store on the West Side took a big step forward and a Marine Corps veteran realized a long-delayed dream with the Chicago Blackhawks.

See what Block Club reporters captured while covering our neighborhoods this week.
