I was visiting close friend in SOHO, corner of Spring Street / Prince near Chanel, Kardashian store etc. and when I got home late at night to his $3 million dollar apt. it was like a ghost town, so dark, so scary - I think the mayor needs to beef up security like Guliani did - Parts of Chelsea is also scary at night. as well as Tribeca, Financial Dist. etc. Unless you live up on 5th Ave. with the doormen always looking out the doors for their residents,.....you are on your own.

If you think this small block near a public library is bad in Murray Hill .....try SOHO after the stores close, worse yet, tribea or financial district. Chelsea not much better nor Clinton or Hell's kitchen. China town is know for gangs and rats - so I guess the only safe place is 5th Ave, where the doormen look out for their tenants getting out of limos - no walkig there at night either. Perhaps you should write to the mayor. Guliani cleaned up the city sanitation and crime wise. Welcome to a bad economy with more homeless and less law enforcement.
