^ Interesting, I do understand that NYC is the center of a lot of things, but are there not some area's where crime is not so crazy? ( I've never been) My sister lives there but she and her husband do not own vehicles, so they don't have that to deal with. Why can't people leave even if they want to? Money? I moved out of Mpls propper when I was about as poor as I ever was. Is it because so many people there do not drive, it would be hard to move without a car.... Or are they just used to it and don't know there are safer area's? I also did not mean to target NYC, but rather any area where crime is rampant....I would not care if my friends/family lived there, I will not tolerate that level of BS. I don't live in a shiny gated community by any means, there is crime in my town, but nothing like what is being described here.
