I wasn't given any trouble. We took the Metra down there, which (as Viva mentioned) is very convenient. The historic Pullman neighborhood itself seemed pretty quiet. There were a few people out and about and not much traffic. As you can see in the photos, some of the houses are very well kept (and many had beautiful landscaping) while others look like your everyday working class urban homes, but none looked to be "problem houses." On the way home, we walked along 115th Street to State to catch a bus to the Red Line at 95th/Dan Ryan. The area is gritty and urban, but it didn't feel unsafe.
