My family has to move to Gary for a business opportunity and honestly from everything I've read online, I'm terrified. Is Gary really as bad as what I have been seeing? It makes me afraid that someone will murder my child. Would it be best to live in another city and only go to Gary for business? If so, can anyone tell me the safest cities within driving distance? I am from the south so I know nothing of this area.

Gary is nasty! I wouldn't recommend moving to that area period.

Is Gary not safe for white people? There must be some white people there?

Look Gary is not as bad as the prior posters make it sound yes just like every city there are gangs and crime but you will also encounter gangs in Hobart, Portage, and Valparaiso too. If you're just trying to move to a predominately white area go to Black Oak or Miller they have a big white population in Gary. The other neighborhoods not so many but scarce white people if you're trying to move to a racial specific area.

It seems that all the crimes in Gary is gang related!! I currently live in Merrillville and everyone tells me not to go there (I've only lived here for 5 months) but I went up there a few weeks ago and every one I met was a lot nicer then the people in Merrillville.... I figured someone would beep at me or scream at me or something but they was very patient and nice just stay away from the gangs and drugs and from what I've seen you should be fine
