Like most Chicago communities, we have found that our quality of life is enhanced by our connections with one another. South Shore is home to highly educated people: professionals, actively working or retired. And- of course- a few who don't fit that description. It is a great community and many residents are working to make it better.
The law says Realtors cannot comment on the crime rate. Your best option is the chicago police website clearmap application at http://gis.chicagopolice.org/ that will map crime in any neighborhood. Please note crime is all around us and in the best and worst neighborhoods. I personally would be more concerned about violent crime rather than simple theft.
