Hopefully you got your answer.
I've been around this neighborhood, I have friends that live by there, at all times of day night and thus far (knock on wood) no issues.
That said, and as previously mentioned it is best if you "cruise" the neighborhood on your own time during different times of the day and week, especially now that it's getting warmer.
This question occurs frequently on many blogs and real-estate related sites. Manuel is correct that real estate brokers cannot under the law characterize a neighborhood as "safe" or "unsafe." That's just not our expertise. A good resource for crime trends and statistics is the Chicago Police Clearmap System, a public portal:
The portal allows you to search for a variety of crimes using a number of filters such as type of incident or time of day. It also allows you to restrict the search area to a radius around a particular address.
Remember, Christopher, every neighborhood has crime. Using the police portal, you might be surprised at the results you encounter in areas of the city that many people would call "good."
When looking at sites such as the one I mentioned above, keep in mind the density of population and any other factors that might concentrate people and therefore incidents in a particular area (public places of amusement, shopping malls, railway stations, etc.).
In addition, one person's tolerance level for crime may be different than another's, so it doesn't make much sense for someone else to make that determination for you. In the end, this is a question you'll need to answer for yourself with a bit of research and personal investigation of the area in which you're considering a home.
Good luck in your search!

As brokers we are not allowed by law to answer those questions since safety can be considered relative. My recommendation would be to go to the area during different times of the day and decide for yourself. Also see websites such as http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/il/chicago/crime/
I personally wash my car just 4 blocks north at the car wash.
