Opinion:
Give him a box cutter. He'll be fine. ( sarcasm ).

All kidding aside
No young girls or boys should be riding the trains at that time.
That's when the animals come out............

Remember the savage on video kicking the old lady sitting on the subway? This was on the 2/5 lines at 3am in the Bronx.

To the OP consider the arguments both pro and con. Think also do you want your kids to be optimistic and open to new adventures or snobby, negative, and afraid of the world.

The metro north is a good idea (it would be a lot easier for you at least).

If you decide to drive to the subway, I wouldn't worry about safety, but the 2 train is so slow! Maybe the 1 instead and then he wouldn't have to switch to a local train.

This is probably best.

I agree, use Metro North. Subway from GCT to LC is quite safe.

To be fair IIRC she did pull a knife on her and threatened to cut him. Wasn't her first time threatening someone with a knife either.
