This whole "is the neighborhood safe" deal is so overblown, it's ridiculous.

BTW: Me and my friends took the CTA train from 35th to 95th street and waited for the bus outside the 95th station all the time back in the 70's and 80s, with no issues.
I think that's kind of the point though. Although many of us on the board know the area is safe, that really isn't the issue. It is the masses of casual fans who are scared and nothing is done by the Sox to attempt to dispel those myths. I know a decent number of friends/coworkers that are casual baseball (and not necessarily Sox) fans that assume you'll get shot the moment you walk east of the red line or west under the viaduct.
