"East Chicago Street" Common Sense Advice / Sketchy Neighborhoods Tip by SnoopySue

by SnoopySue

Going from North Michigan to Chicago Street on east, just after a few blocks I found myself in completely different and, I would say, questionable neighbourhood. Deserted flats, lot of broken windows, obscure faces etc.Lot of signs to first-time walker to turn back and leave the area as soon as possible. Maybe I was wrong, but I tell you - I felt pretty uncomfortable on East Chicago Street just a few blocks from Magnificent Mile.
