Chicago

Visiting Chicago later this month for the NASCAR race. I've already got a place to stay between Grant Park and the Chicago River.

1. How do I avoid thugs, drug addicts, and situations where my ass will get thrown in jail for defending myself?
2. What else should I try to do along with going to the race?

    Enjoy bro. Which ticket tier did you buy? I'm still thinking about ga or ga+ but I'm not sure if I'd be just standing around in the fricking infield sweating my nuts off under the sun.

      I've got a grandstand seat in the W Michigan Reserved stand if I remember right. I'm planning to arrive Friday afternoon and leave sometime Monday morning.

      From what you posted, I think your best bet would be to hid under the bed in your room.

      That's probably a better Chicago experience than most people get.

    You're an American. Around blacks, never relax. It's really that simple.

    Unless you're showing obvious signs of having money or valuables on you nobody will do shit, especially during the day. Just don't get drunk and have your wits about you like in any major city.
    Also I'd say Lincoln Park area is a nice walking trek if you have the time to spare. Good food and bars around there and Lakeview.

    The South Loop is mostly fine. I've stayed at a Hilton in that area before. If you're flying in to MDW you might be taken through Cicero and that's fairly sketchy but not overly dangerous. To the west, look out for West Garfield Park, to the South look out for Englewood and to the north parts of Rogers Park can be bad. The red line can get pretty rough at night so consider Ubering instead.

      Like this anon said, DO NOT take the red line at night

    Generally speaking, the Loop and South Loop up to and including Chinatown are fairly safe. The West Loop less so, the closer you get to the Medical District the worse it gets. I would advise avoiding going there, especially at night, not just for safety reasons but also just because there’s nothing at all to do or see.

    The North Side is fine, River North is where a lot of the yuppie nightlife is and the digs get progressively more working class until you hit Rogers Park, which is basically Little India by this point. Wrigleyville is fun if you’re a fan of pub crawls.

    The Northwest side (Bucktown, Logan Square, Lincoln Park) are traditionally hipster neighborhoods with lots of music, art, and food venues. The nightlife there is different from what you’ll find on Rush street, still a lot of fun but certainly dingier and a more “in” sort of crowd. All of the best bars/clubs from when I used to frequent in the area closed down though.

    General safety advice is avoid black people or places where blacks congregate, especially at night.

    The trains can get very sketch at night but usually the red (Howard-Loop), purple, brown, and blue lines (O’Hare-Loop) are moderately safe. Avoid the green, orange, red (Loop-95th), pink, and blue (Loop-Forest Park) lines at all times of day or night.

    Gonna hijack this thread. I’ve been talking to a qt in South Bend on Hinge for a month. The conversation is great and we seem very similar. She’s a Purdue grad so probably very smart. We’ve decided to meet. What would make a great date?

    Her train will get in at 11 so I’m think lunch first. She also said she’s cool biking to get places which is my favorite way to get around. I’ve never been to the top of Sears/Hanwiener so maybe one of those. She mentioned museums and the aquarium so maybe one of those as well. Any thoughts?

      >biking on a first date
      Gross, and I'm a biker. Make it comfortable and just take an uber/drive around. Save the biking for a day dedicated to biking. Hanwiener is a great idea. Go to the top for a drink. It's called the signature room at the 95th. Shedd is a good idea too don't know about the line though. Actually, just go to the Brookfield Zoo.

    Don't go south of Chinatown or west of Western Ave. Avoid public transit, it's not worth it.

    Just be polite to strangers, mind your business, don't go to the absolute worst neighborhoods in the city (which you won't anyway) and you'll be fine. Nothing bad will happen on the train or bus besides maybe seeing people arguing or some homeless dudes, unless you're taking it through the worst neighborhoods very late at night. I assume CPD will be fricking everywhere around your shitty race and they will hand-hold you to make sure you stay safe
