This is a story about poor parenting and a lack of common sense.

Why are children under 18 riding the subway after midnight? There is no reason on Earth for children to be out riding the subway late at night without parental supervision.

Why was the girl flashing her sidekick? The first lesson in street smarts is don't flash your valuables, especially late at night.

I'm not saying it's the victims fault for being robbed. It's just that common sense goes a long way.

It is a failure on EVERY Side..the parents, the kids, ..everybody. But at the end of the day it IS the parent's responsibility, and as is often the case in the inner city that the parents are horrendous.

I hate the 2, but I've ridden on it inebriated in the middle of the nigth and have gotten home unscathed.

The 4 is a lot better than the 2 in my mind. I like the D the most, but the cars are all old and dirty. The B/D stations in the Bronx are pretty messed up as well.

Never had problems on the late night 6. Worst experience was a drunk mexican guy passing out and falling head first on my lap on 5 during rush hour.

Did anyone notify the police? I know it is a pain in the ass, but it may help them out tremendously if you could identify the hoodlums and give a decent description.

I took a robbery report once on the subway at 168 St & B'way where one of the witnesses gave a good clothing description and the detective recognized a particular hat he had seen on a suspect in another robbery. He was able to arrest him on both.

I don't want to make the "civic duty" spiel but apathy towards these crimes only gives the bad guys more ammunition.

Since ya'll are talking subway lines here, can I ask if anyone can tell me about the 2/3 from around Houston St. in Manhattan down into Brooklyn Heights? Safe? Crowded? Worse or better than others?

The 2/3 from Houston St. to Brooklyn Heights (Borough Hall) is a quick trip. I have done it many times and have never had a bad experience on those trains. It is crowded during rush hours but is not as bad as the 4/5/6 Lexington Avenue line.
