I'm going to have to stay OFF the love fest bandwagon here a bit. Yes, Southshore is a great place to live overall. However, it is sort of like Rogers Park, in that one block is good, another bad. Conditions can change rapidly from one street to another. I suggest you visit the buildings and surrounding blocks at different times to see how activity is. The area can be a bit rough at times depending on location. I always suggest people take a drive through alleys as well. Alleys can tell you a lot about a particular area.
