I live on 33rd St. and Park Avenue, so it is very convenient and pretty safe. Sometimes there are a lot of tourists and business people, but I prefer that to living in a quiet area. There are so many different restaurants and there is basically a convenience store on every corner. I am a 10 minute walk to Macy's and to Grand Central Station. The 6 subway stop is right outside my door, and it is a short walk to Herald Square to catch the BDFM or the NQR. So basically, this area is great!

It is Manhattan, so of course there is always crime and homeless people. But the area itself is pretty safe because Park Ave itself is a residential street, and most of the buildings have doormen. Security has never really been a concern for me here
Police cars are quick to stop cars driven by hispanics just because they assume that the person driving is undocumented. This is unfair and when you try to defend your case, a lot of police officers lie about the facts. NYPD in this area could definitely improve.
