My neighborhood is known to be quite violent but thats only relative to certain parts of the neighborhood. You could walk a few blocks from my house and a lot of crimes could be going on, whether they involve violence, drugs or criminal sexual acts. But for the most part everything is kept very secretive. You wouldn't know something was going on unless people talk, that in itself has it's ups and downs. My only concern is that I personally feel like a target walking around at times, not to the civilians but to law enforcement. The only reason I feel like a target is because i'm a woman of african american descent.

It's not a bad place to live but just like anywhere in NYC I get tired of it fast. There's a lot that comes with the ideal of living in NYC and I do not understand the excitement of living here, but that may be because I have lived here all my life. NYC is the place to visit but the cost of living is a bit much for the size of home you'll get here. The diversity of the city is appreciated. The general atmosphere can be quite overwhelming and wild at times. I personally wouldn't live here again. Although I am not a fan of living here, when I leave after a while I do begin to appreciate it. I see things not changing much in the future.
OF THE BARS/RESTAURANTS I HAVE BEEN TO THAT ARE NOT CHAINS I WOULD SAY MOST WERE PRETTY DECENT, NOT AVERAGE BUT NOT EXCELLENT EITHER. FAVORITE DISH WOULD BE PASTA ALLA VODKA FROM CAFE MILANO.
