I think you have to be careful anywhere, New York is fairly safe these days especially Manhattan.

This is awful to hear. I am shocked because I always thought NYC was one of the safest places on the planet. I felt more safe walking the streets of New York then I did the streets of Glasgow.

New York is still a big city so will be dangerous but I am shocked it happened in Manhattan.

That's horrible! These days everybody thinks New York (and especially Manhattan) is as safe as Disneyland or something, but it's still a giant city with its fair share of criminals/ gang members/ weirdos...
