go to http://www.cityofChicago.org and pull the area crime report. Then go there and walk the area yourself to get a feel for the neighborhood. That is the best you thing you can do to decide for yourself.

safe if your in a building with a doorman........yes. Any other circumstance, get an alarm. you always
have the occasional drug addict or career thief in any inner city neighborhood.
I've lived in south shore for the last 14 yrs in different types of dwellings.

oh and by the way i'm not a realtor , however I am a tenant of several types of dwellings. This is why I tried to help with my answer. I had a break in in july 2013
and all my computer gear, tablets, etc were taken. I love the south shore area because it's by the lake front, so I got an alarm , some super bright motion lights, and I maintain my renters insurance.

You will have to do your own research on the neighborhoods/city that you want to live in. We are not permitted by licensing laws to provide you with that information. I would suggest that you check with the city of Gary website.

Real estate agents are prohibited by federal law from providing that information. You can check the police web sites for the area and they have links to crime and gang activity.

No Realtor can comment safety. We can only point you to information sources so you can do your own research.
The Chicago Police department has a great information on line about what crimes are reported by district.
Attend a CAPS meeting in the area for information and talk to the neighbors as they can tell you better than anyone what is happening in the area.
