My opinion was about Harlem, but trouble seems to follow you whereever you go. Apparently you can't walk down a street without being harassed by cops, approached by a never ending stream of vagrants, verbally assaulted by random people on the street, and rats tend to congregate around wherever you live/walk/visit. I walk through Harlem, Mott Haven, Hunts Point, Concourse, Melrose etc on a regular basis and have yet to have anything remotely similar happen to me, and that includes late at night. And you would think since I "look white" (according to some) I would be a target of SOMETHING? Nevertheless, this all goes back to my point: If you are not hanging out with the homies at 4am, in the projects, or with the wrong element, you will not have these sorts of experiences, and they will be quite rare at the very least. This applies to EVERY neighborhood in the USA, you hang with the wrong element and trouble will find you. Same goes for residents in Harlem, the vast majority who are not involved in the wrong element do not think Harlem is a bad place anymore.
