As Real Estate professionals since we're unable to give our customers advice about the safety of a particular neighborhood, I always suggest to my clients that they should visit areas they're interested in during the times of day/night that they would normally be travelling to/from home if they actually lived there. Male or Female, you should always be alert & use precaution no matter where you are in the city. Here are some crime prevention tips that may be helpful for you: http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/html/crime_prevention/crime_pre

Generally speaking the neighborhood has better crime stats than neighborhoods that are generally regarded as far more upscale. That said- snatch and grab crimes (mostly smart phone related) are on the rise, but this is also a general trend across the entire city.
Unfortunately, no matter if you're Male or Female, a licensed real estate agents across the 50 states are not allowed to talk about safefty. Per Fair Housing Laws we cannot. The best advice is, you must walk to the building and the surrounding area. If you like it, you can give an agent a call.
