"Stay away from the Hyde Park/Kenwood/Englewood" Common Sense Advice / Sketchy Neighborhoods Tip by ChicagoBlue

While a lot of people seem to show the so called good side of the Hyde Park/Kenwood/Englewood communities. The only endearing thing about them is that the University of Chicago is located there. Unfortunately if you are a tourist or even a resident of the city(for that matter) you should stay away from these areas. In the base 10 months there has been a startling increase in violent crime such as assaults, armed robberies and homicides. Englewood is one of the most dangerous communities in all of America. If you are visiting Chicago, Please stay away from these areas as they are infested with gang activity and drug related crimes.
