There's always reports of violence on the 2 and 5 trains in the Bronx. It makes sense as these trains serve Edenwald, Wakefield, and Williambridge (easily the worst neighborhoods in the Bronx these days).

Another man got slashed on the 2/5 train. Weirdly the violence stays in the Bronx on these trains mostly. I guess ghetto people don't take the train into Manhattan that much (they really have no business there, the Bronx has it's own SSI and welfare offices).

Depends what you mean by worst. I take my 14 year old to the 5 train to Pelham Pkwy and she feels safe. Edenwald and Williamsbridge are mixed areas. They have large NYCHA developments but also nice private homes. Take a walk thru the area.

Took the Brooklyn bound 5 subway regularly for a period of time in the early evenings a year and a half ago, And found it to be the worst line I ever have been on. Filthy and 2 concerning situations involving disturbed people, One who said he is going to rob everyone on the car. He got off and actually went after someone. it was just a nerve-wracking ride every time.

Was the mayhem in Brooklyn, Manhattan, or the Bronx ?

2 and the 5 train passes through dangerous neighborhoods of the bronx, Harlem in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Trains overall has gotten worse with overly stressed riders that can snap at any moment.

I don't think this slashing happened ON the train. It happened outside of the station on the stairs near the street.That station is in a bad neighborhood. I ride both the 2 and 5 trains all the time and have never felt uncomfortable in any way , at any time of day or night , on any of the trains or in or around the station I live by...Pelham Parkway

Also,it wasn't a random slashing like most of the other slashings ,including the one's in Manhattan , over the last few weeks. In this case there was a beef between the victim and the slasher over a sexual advance. really.... A sexual advance at 4:00 am at West Farm Sq and East Tremont Ave

Now,there was a 71 year old lady randomly slashed across the face while actually sitting ON a D train in Manhattan a week or so ago.Seems as though by your logic it should be the D train that gets the award for most dangerous ..

Yeah that train station is in a terrible area, it's not safe around there day or night IMO. Some pretty bad projects like right up the block from there.

It really does seem like the worst Bronx neighborhoods are in the Central and North Bronx these days

2 and 5 trains go through the hoods in Upper Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn so expect things to get little crazy sometimes
