no he/she didnt hear wrong. Crime is being committed constantly per hour in nyc. Just in a low rate thats all.

People like you think NYC is the most dangerous place on Earth, but in reality there was always a city that was worse. Nowadays NYC is not as dangerous as you seem. Yes you do have gritty and ghetto parts that you should avoid or used caution in but its not that bad lol. I can tell you the worst parts of NYC.

Brooklyn:
-Brownsville
-East New York
-Bed-Stuy
-Flatbush
-Fort Greene
-Clinton Hill
-Some parts of Coney Island
-Some parts of Bushwick
-Some parts of Williamsburg

Manhattan:
-Harlem
-Washington Heights
-Inwood
-East Harlem

Queens:
-South Jamaica
-Queensbridge

Bronx:
-Mott Haven
-Eastchester
-Parkchester

and too many other parts to name

As for subway lines in NYC,

-The A/C train is ghetto, especially through Brooklyn and Queens at night
-The J/Z train can be quite ghetto

Okay in short, any line that goes through the Bronx can be rough, except for the 1 train and damn near every line that goes through Northern and Eastern Brooklyn is ghetto, except the L train which is the hipster express but after it goes past Broadway Junction it gets ghetto.

your statement makes no sense. If the media really made nyc look like iraq then why would they make crime rates showing how low crime per 100,000 is in the city?

every hood in this country is portrayed as IRAQ so.............

Crown vic the L train is only hipster express once you hit before brroadway junction. I bet most people would be scared to come off the L train at any stop after the junction.

When it comes to trains systems what i admire about nyc is the express local service. I find 2 track one way service to be boring. This video shows what im talking about.

the one main thing that makes me pick nyc over anything. Thats unless off coarse their are other systems in america that have this??

As for dirt. Luckily most of nyc subway stations are going through renovation so i know in a few years the whole dirty subway thing will be memories as the subways are cleaner now compared to years ago and becoming more cleaner daily.

I didn't say parts of Brownsville, I said ALL of Brownsville is a no go area. Everything I named on there I meant the whole section, unless I said "part", which I did say.

Also any neighborhood where you'd have a good change of getting robbed is a no go zone for a tourist. Theres only like a small portion of Queensbridge thats "safe", and even then you should be aware of your surroundings. PArkchester and Eastchester aren't that bad but its not Greenpoint either.

eastchester doesnt really have much going on except maybe the projects?. Parkchester i wouldn't say is all the way safe but Edenwald is worse then both combined.
