    Honestly, I'm a tiny girl and I've been coming and going at Ruggles for years. All through high school without a single problem. People are forcing it with the "unsafe" remarks.

    It's a little sketch. But I walk thru here every day. It's right next to NU. There's usually a couple cops in there to yell at me for longboarding in the station, so it cant be that unsafe.

    Ruggles is not as safe as fools here are tryna make it look, but its also not as dangerous as other fools make it seem. Be smart wen walking around there and ull be fine.

    This felt unsafe when I moved to the city in 07, now it's just part of the city, and not any less safe than everywhere else

    Nice during the day, same at night. The most dangerous things here are idiots screaming at the top of their lungs

    Station is perfectly safe. Although the screaming Jesus fellow is quite annoying.

    Ruggles goes well with French Onion Dip or just out of the bag!

    When all of these people are writing "not safe", they're probably just being bigots because it's in a predominantly black neighborhood.

    Four years of school here and countless t rides with naive freshman. Huntington Ave traffic is more dangerous...

    It's very simple, if you don't look like a target and you won't be one. The same rules apply when traversing suburbia.

    What's this? Oh, an actual tip... The DD here is faster at times than they seem. But I wouldn't eat the food. Stick to coffee.

    Ruggles is "not safe" in the same way the Beastie Boys "aren't rap." Get it together, people.
