Austin Neighborhood?

CoolerbytheLake | Feb 14, 200305:13 PM

An obligation requires me to be near the 5800 block of W. Chicago Avenue tomorrow (Saturday) during the day. Specifically, on Chicago between Cicero and N. Laramie. I think that's near or in Austin, according to the Yahoo map I'm looking at. I already know, and have been further informed that it's a rough neighborhood, and my question is whether or not I can or should linger afterwards to check things out with at least a minimal expectation of personal safety. More specifically, is there anything WORTH checking out nearby? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
