We *still* hear from people - especially visitors to the city and transplants now living here - that the area is dangerous. The lack of these types of things only contributes to that notion, especially when the other park has a vibrant business area around it. Which would you choose for a trip/team to root for? The "fun and safe" area around Wrigley, or the bland and "dangerous" area around the Cell?
