    Most importantly, don't let paranoia ruin your trip to NYC. It's a great place to be, and very exciting. There are strange people, but as long as you don't go to a "bad" part of town, you don't really have anything to worry about. Just herd along with all the other tourists and you'll be just fine.

    I say all that from experience. I let it bother me too much when I was there. I even got off the train in the "wrong part of town". and I'm still here. Just act like you're supposed to be there.

    As much as I'd like to see the sights of the Big Apple I just can't bring myself to spend money in a city that is as anti-gun as NYC, same for Chicago, SF, and LA.

    Live on Long Island work in 3 out of the 5 boros. Saw the fire from the tower on 9/11 and here is my .02. Walk around like you have brass ones. Like you belong and not going to take crap from anybody beacuse you are a NY'r. Not the I am better than you look but I dont care what you think look. NYC is still one of the best places around. Mr Rudy stepped on everybodys right he did not care. Simple math. Get rid of the drug dens, Peep shows and Disney and likes will come in, people spend and you get the tax money the city needs. If you rent a car tripple check the signs bacause you will get ticketed and towed.

    Much of what jah said is true. I left NY 4 years ago. In the city just stay in the populated areas. Midtown is fine. Tribecca is excellent. Little Italy/ Chinatown are fine.Restaurants on Restaurant Row (49th by theater district) are good and not that expensive. Always check prices, I can direct you to a $55 hamburger if you wish. As said before do not look like a tourist, do not blatently stare, do not insult, and use ATMs that are busy (best in a hotel). Parks are great in the DAYTIME.

    Quick story many years ago we were moving my great aunt from Harlem. We asked a couple of LEOs if it gets that bad after dark. Their answer,"Have no idea we are out of here by then."

    Quick burroughs:
    Queens . . . Northern area the best close to Nassau line.
    Bronx . . . Area near Thogs neck bridge great Italian and famous Arthur Ave.
    Brooklyn . . . South near Verrazano Bridge. Emmons Ave
    Staten Island . . . Who cares?
