Fuller Park, Chicago (South Side) circa 1980

This might be a shot in the dark, but does anyone have any insight into what it was like to live in Fuller Park, or even just the general South Side of Chicago in the mid 80s or thereabouts? I have two characters who were about 12 in 1985, and who both grow up there (but then end up following very different paths). I'm mainly concerned with the violence/crime rate of the area and how easy it would be for someone to get sucked in to the seedy side at a younger age. And/or how a kid would avoid succumbing to it.

Thanks so much for any help you can give. ^_^
