"It's been through hard times."

I lived there many years ago and have visited recently. Many homes are being taken care of beautifully, but some are in terrible disrepair. Additionally the neighborhood in general has a dreadful crime rate and is not really all that safe for anyone day or night. Great transportation with city buses, but even on the main streets, wouldn't shop there. Once a very nice middle class neighborhood, will hopefully turn itself around, but it will take a lot of time still.

AdamS Hi vpage,

I posted a comment on the main Chicago page about "The Loop" in chicago. I was wondering if it's true about going south of the loop, and as many people say, if you value your life you should not go south of it! Is there any truth to this? From the sound of your review, it looks like there are some dreadful places in Chicago.
