Exploring downtown by foot for hours taking a ton of pictures makes me concerned. If I don't feel safe doing that, I might as well not go.

What I might do is just watch and wait to see if there are any more major reports of attacks, and then decide. A few more "Wildings" (targeting whites?) and I won't go: EconomicPolicyJournal.com: Serious Mob Attacks in Downtown Chicago
Take a evening-night time boat tour along Chicago river. Very spectacular and great lighting from interesting perspectives. I recall it is not also outrageously expensive. I did a lot of pics and they looked great.
