Safety

New York City has consistently been rated as one of the safest large cities in the United States by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). As a result, you’ll be able to stroll around most areas in New York City without encountering any sort of major or minor crime.

However, like in most large cities, crime does exist, so it is best to avoid the high rated crime areas. Some of these include areas in Harlem, the Bronx, and Brooklyn. Yet, though some of these neighborhoods contain isolated areas with a high crime rate, it does not mean you should avoid these neighborhoods. Rather, visit these neighborhoods, but avoid the dangerous areas.

Some other safety suggestions include not being too touristy when touring around the city. This includes not pulling out your map in the middle of the sidewalk. Also, do not walk alone in dark, deserted areas.
