Is it safe to walk alone from the D subway stop at 183/grand concourse to St. Barnabas hospital (184 and 3rd) around 1:00 PM? Approximately 17 minute walk

you would have to deal with 183rd street east of the Concourse, which is probably worse than what is east of Webster

at that hour i might guess that it is marginal/passable

183rd street is a long strecth. I can never forget 183rd and aqueduct being desolete and drug dealing running around. Luckily your not going to those parts. I have walked from Fordham Plaza to BCC many times and vice versa using 183rd street as the main walkway for to FP and nothing never happened to me however this was five to six years ago Im not sure how the area has changed but from the chatter that I here frome online and people I know 183rd is not good. All can I say is to save time from walking and being tired can you find and alternate route to get to St Barnabas hospital? Webster ave third ave area really needs a new subway line to be rebuilt. All I can say is 183rd between GC and third avenue is sketchy at best but when you done with St Barnabas hospital behind of it is little italy and have some great pizza or pasta to cheer you up and relax.

The train stop is on 182nd if you start walking east on 182nd you end up in a dead end after Tiebout Ave. Take the train to Fordham Road walk two blocks south to 184th and start walking but at Park Ave. you must walk one block south to 183rd to be able to cross Park Ave train tracks. As mentioned the lack of subway in the area around Third Ave makes accsess to the hospital difficult.

Be prepared that after Webster the area deteriorates further.
As for safety I don't personally carry my wallet in East Tremont at all and I write my social security number with black on my right arm and hide it with a long sleeve shirt, for identification if I'm found somewhere.

whitlock I dont believe for a second you write your SS# on your right arm "for identification if you are found somewhere". I can't believe I even read that.

You are a straight liar, a paranoid schizophrenic, or just dumb (or maybe some combination of the above). I have already confirmed the first and last ones from prior posts, and now you have confirmed the middle one. Either way...please go away.

As long as you don't get close to any housing project hang outs, and you walk when is daytime I think you should be OK.
Just be alert of your sourrondings, don't look a like a tourist, walk confidently and no distractions such as headphones or texting. In the jungle, you don't wanna look like prey, because if you do, you'll become one.

This has to be a joke.

That kid is notoriously ridiculous, so best to ignore his comments.

Your safest walk would have you getting off at Fordham road and walking to and turning at Arthur Ave. It would take about 20-30 minutes to walk, but it would definitely be the safest route.

It's called precautions Sobro. Precautions. I would suggest you do that too the next time you wander in the wee hours of the morning in bathrobe and flip-flops with socks looking if there's left any fresh produce eggs in Brook Park.
