    ....yeah, but you're better off not trucking through the parts necessary to get there. Stick to the north side. Sox suck anyway.

    Re: France issues travel warning to Parts of Chicago.

    Don't people who travel usually stick to the "nice" side of the cities they visit anyways? I've been in Mexico for over a year and have yet to accidentally get caught in a slum. Then again, I've bought maps to make sure I don't end up in ****ty parts of cities I visit. In about 4 weeks, I'm headed to Zacatecas/San Luis Potosi and Leon. I've already mapped out my trip from the Western highway entries to the cities to hotels in the centres. Maybe I'm different though - I just don't see a reason why France would issue such a warning in the first place.

    I live in London which is a short train ride from France never had any problems with them.

    I actually want all the French people possible to visit the south side of Chicago.

    What does everyone make of this? Having visited the city on a number of occasions i'm sad because it really is a great city to visit. Given the high number of murders, shootings etc is the warning warranted or is it an overrecation? Interested to hear from everyone but especially from posters who live or grew up in the Chicago.
    I don't know why Huffpost made a big deal of this. There are state department warnings for most every place on earth. So we have cities with crappy neighborhoods and France wants to keep their less travel-savvy citizens out of them. Is that so shocking?

    I would think O'Hare alone would warrant a travel warning.

    I've been there a few times, wasn't very impressed (the french should just visit paris instead), but didn't sense it was dangerous.

    It's best just to avoid the whole city.

    Everyone should avoid the whole city.

    Absolutely, the gangsters that have been running that city into the ground the 40 years ought to be shot. South side of Chicago is a ****ing sewer, I have driven through it myself several times. Anyone know where Chicago State University is? Yeah, that's what I mean. Rahm Emmanuel ought to fired out of that city on a missile.

    Why should it be surprising that a foreign government would do what our government does warning its citizens about problem areas in the area that they may visit.
