Every where you go have negative sceneries however its bout who and what yu involve yourself with... Avenue D is the one with the most activity yes, but appears to be the worst because is where all teh development (city ) buildings are and minorities. But if yougo toAvenue B , First Ave you will find all the rapists, cocaine heads, punk rocks that use pills and all the drunks with 50 tatoos. either way you are in NYC urban enviroment. Put on ur adult hat and keep walking ..noone should ever determine where you should live.

I can only speak from the perspective of a tourist but I would add that I recently stayed on Ave C, around 9th st, it was a vibrant place with good bars and restaurants. My regular evening would end with a walk from the 1st Ave subway along 14th st then down Ave C at between 2-4am or I'd go down 1st, A or B so that I could walk thru Tompkins Square Park. I didn't see any trouble but enjoyed the stroll thru a unique part of the city at that time of night. When I ventured onto Ave D to a grocery store I noticed a different clientele but was greeted with warmth and friendliness. Overall I would say that when I next visit NYC I'll be staying in Alphabet City again.

Congratulations! But is really sad that a 5th floor walkup in I assume a building that is at best average rents for $1,575/month. Utter madness.

I visited friends there a few years ago and I felt completely safe during the daylight hours. I haven't been there after dark.

Congrats.

I have to believe that there are no other cities out there with such a high concentration of sore anuses in such a small area as there are in this city...

I've been in Alphabet city a million times late at night, even in the Jacob Riis houses, and never felt unsafe. The area feels nothing like say, East Harlem despite a high concentration of housing projects.

Also, Alphabet City seems to be part of the East Village but I've heard it referred to as being the Lower East Side (and Avenue C is nicknamed "Loisaida Avenue"), which one is more correct?
