    Any safe places to publicly park in Evanston? I'm heading up for a Northwestern football game and would love to take my f-car. I only will if I know it would be safe unattended for a few hours.

    I am not sure that is possible. I did live in Evanston, but don't remember any really safe parking, unless you have a friend with a driveway.

    Pay someone "a little extra" to park in their driveway.
    you could also try Evanston Hospital... directly east of the field. Park her WAY up and in a corner of the deck.

    you could park in my driveway, but you would need a cab to then get to the game. I'm about 3-4 miles away.

    Evanston has several public parking garages, several of them in wealthy neighbourhoods. I have parked there as well as in public parking garages in Chicago downtown. Not really an issue. That's what you have insurance for.

    You're going to a Wildcat game. Not exactly the Meadowlands. Your biggest risk is getting over-chamoied by the ample plaid-clad rear end of the woman climbing out of the Bentley parked next to you.
