I've just taken a part-time job at Gregory Middle School, 3715 West Polk, in the Lawndale/Little Village area, and am trying to figure out how to get there, *safely* using public transportation.

How dangerous is it for me to be walking around in this area? The times I will there would be 2:00-5:00 in the afternoon, and just for the next couple months so it would not be dark outside. Any comments?

You could take the Blue Line to Kedzie-Homan and walk the rest of the way.

That's the plan, it just looks like a 6-8 block walk and I was curious about how safe that walk is.

The Pulaski stop is closer, but that walk is much more dicey.

The walk from Kedzie-Homan is pretty dicey as well.

Yeah, no lie.

When I worked as a helper on the Tribune truck we were jumped by gousters around there and had to fight them off. But that was 42 years ago. It's worse now.

Just because you're not expected to make it to 60 doesn't mean it's unusual.
