Hello,

I posted a microwave on Craiglist and agreed to drop it off. Someone replied to my post asking if I would be able to drop it off at Utica Ave and Crown St in Crown Heights. I only posted it for $25 so it's not a big risk but is that a bad area? I lived in bad areas before so i'm not really worried but I still want to make sure I don't deliver it to an area where I may not get the money(of course this could happen anywhere but it's all about percentages).

Thanks,

Thanks, the person didn't end up following-up so I'll sell it to someone in Astoria.
