The power of Google Maps and Streetview... Check it out, here, with Street View and user pictures. (note: I have never tried linking to Google Streetview, so I have no clue if this will show what I just looked at).This might be the property they're referring to, it's just south of Seaton House.
That picture you showed of the South Side of Chicago makes the area look pretty good. I took a 2 hour tour of that area and trust me, there are much worse parts then that. No, of course George Street is not like that. First of all, the run down South Side is a huge area, that seems to go for miles. George street also didn't feel dangerous, where Chicago definitely did.
I've never been to the south side of Chicago, but you must have chosen a bad example of its notorious character because besides the litter and vacant lots it looks decent in that streetview. I see no graffiti, no boarded up houses, a relatively new roadway, and but a single overhead wire. That Modernist block with those large security walls around its perimeter and the stark lack of any street furniture seems to indicate problems though.
