I am doing a photography project in Evanston, IL next week. How safe is it for me to be walking around with my equipment, by myself, on weekdays? Also, how's public transportation there?

I am staying east of Centennial Park/south of Northwestern because that's the only place I could find hotels. Is that area safe?
If not, what's the best alternative? I can try to get an airbnb elsewhere.
(By "walking around with my equipment" I mean carrying a non-concealed professional camera and maybe a camera bag.)
Also, any tips with regards to public transportation? Is it reliable, or should I plan to ride taxis?
