If you plan on walking home at night, I'd agree.

Thanks for the help! My other preferences were much farther east and around 54-56th street. I imagine these are safer options, albeit about $100/month more expensive on average.
I know they both don't look great at first glance, but 10 blocks north or east makes a world of difference. You can see the difference in the number of shootings reported on those different maps. There are none in Hyde Park but plenty south of there. In my opinion, it's worth it to not have to maintain hypervigilance every night.
