Hello,

I have an event to go to tonight around 8pm in that area. How safe is it to walk cross-town west from 7th Avenue? Is it desolate or is it well-lit with restaurants/bars open? Would it be better for me to cab it?

Thanks!

If you feel unsafe walking (it's really a personal thing, I think you would be fine..) then just take a cab.

I go over to that area all the time for work. Even as late as 7 ot 8 there are still many people leaving their offices.

pretty damn safe..

i know there are some projects in the west 20's but nothing crazy at all and people who've been there forever are generally nice.. area is policed and gentrified to the brink..

wkend nights you might here a scuffle or 2 from all the clubs on west 27th, but again just drunk people being drunk, nothing nuts ..but you'll see that everywhere in ny

perfectly safe, although isolated at night

Anywhere below 86th st East or West is pretty safe in manhattan.
