There is crime all over the city in every neighborhood. The best way to see if a neighborhood is a good fit for you is to visit the neighborhood at different times of the day and also during the week vs. the weekend.

Good luck in your search.

I think it is more of a vocation than a habit.

I think the consensus is to contact the Police Department.

We cant comment of things of this nature. You can check out the property at all different times of the day and night and see if its right for you.

I suggest you visit the police crime website and more importantly spend some time in the neighborhood restaurants asking questions. Good luck! http://gis.chicagopolice.org/clearmap/startpage.htm

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
