You should be fine. Anything around there within walking distance is a pretty safe bet. Back in 2004 my girlfriend at the time (who was about your age) lived on Spaulding and used to walk down to where you're talking about to where the Double currently resides. Back then there were no issues, and I'm sure it's only cleaned up since then.

Just be smart and alert when walking in the city, (don't be messing with your phone when alone) and you should be okay.

Probably won't impact you. But there is crime/gang activity.

Yeah, the area isn't bad but there can be gang activity. That sort of stuff tends to be block by block, so just have your boyfriend check out the area on a warm night and see what he thinks (he may have done that already).

It's still pretty gang-y over there. Direct impact on you? Probably not much. But it can still have a notable impact on overall quality of life.

Personally, I wouldn't feel comfortable in that area. I'm a 24yr old female, and also looking for a place in Logan Square (my boyfriend and many friends live in Logan so I've pretty familiar). It is very block-to-block, but as an overall I'm keeping the search east of about Kedzie, north of Armitage. As a general rule of thumb, friends have told me to stick close to the Blue line, and close to main streets so I feel safer. Close to the blue line is also nice just to get places.
