Hi all!! I plan to take a job that is located in Harlem on West 118th street between Lenox Ave/Malcolm X Blvd and 5th ave. the job i am going for usually starts at 8am and ends at 4 pm, with occasion late nights. Is the area safe for a female? i also have to take the 2/3 train. Thanks a lot!!!

I live about 6 blocks south of there and frequently come home late without any problems. I understand that the area north of where I live does get rough sometimes, however.

My initial reaction is that you won't have a problem, especially between the hours of 8 and 4. I wouldn't wander around there (you're probably still across from the projects at 118th) after midnight, but even then you'll probably still be ok. Just be smart, as you have to be anywhere.

Those hours you should be fine. Be careful at night though (late night/early morning hours).

Enjoy the city
