I will like to buy in a condo on Central Park North. Is 110th/5th Avenue, 110th West safe these days? Are there still frequent shootings?
There are a lot of gorgeous residential blocks between Columbus an Central Park West, all he way up to 110th street. Personally I feel safe there, even when showing late at night.
