I too am from a rough part in Brooklyn and even spent some time living in the South Bronx and believe me out of all those places I prefer this little pocket of an area. Look into places on Seaman Ave, Payson, Riverside Drive, Park Terrace....get as far as west as you can.
I also live in Inwood, west of Broadway. (I was born in Inwood). I don't know why someone here posted that it's dangerous, that's ridiculous. Sometimes when I'm hanging out with my friends in the Village, Chelsea, etc, I wind up coming home at around 3:00am. Walking these streets of Payson, Seaman, Cooper, etc. is so quiet that you can hear a pin drop. There's literally no activity in Inwood, west of broadway at night. East of Broadway is super noisy, though.

The only negative part about being up here is that the train ride takes so long, and that only the A and 1 trains stop by here. Both trains make local stops after hours, making your commute back home to over an hour.

Im sorry but anytime a thread is bumped from 2yrs or more mods should close them and investigate the screen names. Something tells me the people who always do these bumps are just fake names other members use for whatever idiotic reason.

I have the same feeling of annoyance, but actually, I'm pretty sure City-Data is encouraging this. There is a function called "Similar threads" that pops up at the bottom of a thread. Those links more often than not bring you to a very old thread. If they didn't want people responding to 2- and 5- year old threads, they would stop highlighting really old threads. Also I think there's another function that does the same thing.

^^^^Yes, I have inadvertently replied to old threads via the same method. It's super annoying.

What's wrong with replying to an old thread?

The OP is mostly long gone, or whatever problem she or he had is long solved.

Yeah but the topic can still be relevant. Aren't you actually encouraged to use existing threads rather than make new ones.

Exactly. Why create new threads about the same subject when you can have less threads that run for longer? Makes it much easier when you search for information. Whether OP is here or not doesn't really matter, the info here is for everyone to share.

I would think twice about anything in Manhattan North of 96th Street, East or West with the exception of Western Inwood.
