We are looking at a place on 47th between 5th and 6th. I am a student with evening classes so I will be coming home late regularly. We really like the area, but we just want to be aware of issues or areas that are problematic.

I spent some time in that area about 5 years ago and it definitely wasnt unsafe or dangerous. I think the guy above me is exxagerating.

Exaggerate? How do you exaggerate this?

Young man shot to death in Brooklyn in possible gang rubout, police source says - NY Daily News

And just as a point of reference, I've worked here 5 days a week for the past ten years. I'm in Sunset Park right now reading all the robberies that happened this week.

Thats one incident. A shooting can happen anywhere, anytime. Its not like everyday that happens then u could consider it a bad neighborhood. That type of violence is very rare for that area. I doubt u ever spent any time over there so ur just going off of one thing u read.

Fine by me. Obviously there's no proof of what I'm saying, and I wish you were right. I'm stuck in this neighborhood for the rest of today, as I've been at least 5 days a week for 10 years now.

Lol, and I just saw that this is coming from someone who "spent some time here" 5 years ago? Good one.
