I'll give you that cities like NYC are stinky and expensive. But NYC in particular is a very safe place. We have about 300 murders per year with a population of 8.5 million. Yes, I might live within a mile of a murder, but I also live within a mile of 400,000 people. That's about entire population of Raleigh, NC, where I used to live.

> 300 murders

I don't understand. (I live in chicago)

I live in Baltimore. We have more murders at a population of 600,000.

I think we get 300 murders a month

At least that in the summer and spring time. Not so much during the winter.

Murder was just the worst example: rape, robbery, assault etc.
