I have a friend who lives in a prosperous neighborhood in Chicago Illinois. I live in a Chicago neighborhood that is a lot less prosperous. My friend takes regular walks around his neighborhood to get a little exercise. I told him you wouldn’t take a walk in my neighborhood! The only people who walk around here are the people who don’t have a car.
You can be robbed or shot on any street in Chicago, but that threat of being harmed is much higher in a high crime neighborhood. The threat of crime is a great motivator to stay in the house.
