I am a college freshman and new to NYC, planning to volunteer at Union Settlement Credit Union. It is in between 2nd and 3rd Ave, on East 104th Street. What would it be like during the afternoon? And would commuting by metro be okay? My main concern is safety, because I am here alone and have to be responsible for myself. Thank you all very much in advance.

Don't walk around like a d-bag after night falls and you'll most surely be fine....

You will be OK. There is nothing to worry about. Get off at 103rd street #6 station and you will be there in 5 mins. If you need to know more, just ask. I probably know that place more than anyone on this board.

You're fine. I'm a single girl and a few years back did volunteer work on 103rd & Lex (or within a block or so)....not going to lie, I didn't enjoy walking by the projects but never felt unsafe. I lived in the East 90's at the time and just walked vs cabbing. You'll be fine.

6 train stops at 103rd & Lex so you only have to walk a block once you get out. You will notice that 99% of the white people get off the 6 train by 96th Street, but no big deal.
