Common Sense Advice / Sketchy Neighborhoods, Chicago: 52 reviews and 16 photos
I've lived in Chicago all of my life. Travelers, please understand that all neighborhoods within the city have their good and bad points. Just because you're staying in a fancy hotel on Michigan Avenue doesn't mean you cannot get robbed. Walking in an allegedly "bad" neighborhood doesn't necessarily mean that you're going to come to harm. Just like anywhere else, It's a matter of paying attention to your surroundings, and not being careless. If you follow the "avoid these areas" advice, you'll miss out on some true jewels such as Edna's Sout Food Restaurant, Buddy Guy's Legends, Ford City Shopping Center, Windy City Boxing Gym, Garfield Park Conservatory, etc., not to mention a whole lot of summer neighborhood festivals and off-the-beaten path attractions.
