You are correct. "Northside Weenies" is a better description,and not everyone who lives North of Madison Street is one. Only those who judge a neighborhood by how many Chads or Trixies live there, actually.

Little village is definitely more dicey than most of Pilsen, but it has my favorite regional Mexican food on 26th street so I'll still risk my automobile windows to eat there occasionally.

I agree with MarquettePark. I don't think people should take his review as being homophobic, racist or anti north-sider. But generally speaking that's how the majority of those demographics view the southside. And being a card caring member of the gay community I can tell you for sure that if you're gay and living on the southside then you're probably not visibly "out". Even the liberal oasis Hyde Park is not as comfortable for a gay person as say the north side neighborhoods of Andersonville or Lincoln Park would be.

Additionally I get so frustrated when people ask if a neighborhood is bad or good by name only. i.e. "is it dangerous to move to Bronzville"? The truth is that Chicago neighborhoods are so large it'd be better to ask or research on zip codes. One zip code in Bronzville you wouldn't want to live in but the other zip codes in the same neighborhood is not only safe but has large mansions going for astronomical prices.

60624 WOULD NOT be a good neighborhood for a single white female. But if you did decide to live there you wouldn't be hassled because criminals tend to avoid doing anything to white people that would cause the police to come down on them, stopping their flow of business. I think the more appropriate question is would you be comfortable living in a high crime area until it flipped? 60624 is gentrifying with younger white people moving in but I haven't met a single white female there yet.

I believe that address is Morgan Park. I checked the recent crime, and nothing out of the ordinary popped up - some crack sales, and the usual burglary. I think the fact that Washington Heights is just north of it means some spillover of the dirty types.

No, davu is right. That area is in the middle of a gang conflict. It's not as dramatic as he makes it sound, though.

Yowsa...So... Where would be a good place to live if you have never lived in this large a city before, I am street smart to a point, but from what you are saying, I wouldn't want to be out late at night anywhere in this city! Sheesh! I grew up in Fort Wayne, and it was a scary place in some spots, but from what you are saying, I better just avoid Chicago~

Tell me some light is at the end of the tunnel, and not the one that I would be walking to when I get shot!
