Chicago - Residents of a Chicago condo whose building will be in the eye of the NATO storm are being warned that they should move out for the weekend ... or risk being trapped inside by rioters.
FOX Chicago News was first to report Friday that the people living in the 17-floor Library Tower building at 520 South State Street were warned in a letter from condo management that "we are STRONGLY recommending that all residents find places to stay during the conference from May 18 through May 21."
READ THE LETTER>>>
NATO summits often attract crowds of thousands of protesters. Currently, a march is planned on Sunday, May 20, from the Petrillo Band Shell in Grant Park past Library Tower on State Street to McCormick Place.
The condo is hiring two off-duty police officers to provide security; those cops will be armed.

"Told To Leave" & "Strongly Recommended" are 2 different things.
Don't agree with either since it's NATO at the root of the situation and they have no right to "Tell" or "Recommend" to anyone to leave their homes.
