"Wrigley Field/US Cellular Field Warnings" Common Sense Advice / Sketchy Neighborhoods Tip by Hillari

Wrigley Field, where the Chicago Cubs play, sits in the Wrigleyville neighborhood on the North side. Not a bad area, but be mindful of con artists hanging around outside the ball park, pulling scams from pidgeon drops to selling fake tickets. Pickpockets love this spot, also. After the game, be mindful of the people who've had too much to drink during the game. The White Sox play on the South side at US Cellular Field (formerly Cominsky Park). The same things you should watch out for at Wrigley Field, apply at US Cellular. People of color should also be alert for racial incidents. They don't happen much around Wrigley, but US Celluar is not far from a neighborhood that is less than welcoming to people who don't look like they do.
