Baka Posted July 7, 2015 Share Posted July 7, 2015 I ve been to Chicago. It was really nice. Nobody killed me. We didnt see a single riot. They had a lot of great restaurants and none of them were being looted while we were there. In all fairness you can say this about any city you visit. When you visit cities you hang around the nicer areas with the more upscale/successful businesses and restaurants and these areas in general are always pretty safe. But if you wander into the bad areas you will notice a completely different aura. A lot of stores, fast food places, gas stations, etc will have you dealing with people behind bullet proof glass and exchanging goods in a bullet proof rotating chamber. Their are cameras on street corners sometimes not for traffic but in high crime areas where it is meant to watch the people. Hookers, tweakers, and drug dealers will be obvious spots and often approach or say things to you. If you are driving and with someone who has been around these areas even if it is summer they may tell you to roll up your windows and lock the doors or someone may target you for a quick robbery. Major cities are pretty day and night depending on the area you are in. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
