    Im taking my first trip to NYC shortly...and im supposed to be staying with a friend on abuot 156th St. and Broadway...which is in Harlem from what i understand... now i admit all i know of new york is hearsay and from television and movies...so what i know or think i know is only assumptions..but i need to know....are our chances of encountering trouble walking from the station to our friends place greater in that area?? being that we're both caucasian?? (our plane gets in late at night new york time) ...now i hate to think like that...but i am realistic and realize there are some places we dont belong...any help is great..

    many thanks

    just use the same comon sense use in all shituations man. keep your doe in your pocket. Head str8 to your man apt and itsa all good. people in harlem have seen white folks before so its not like they are just sitting waiting for some stray whitie to fall into their webs.

    maybe refrain from dropping the "N" bomb and it ahould be all good.

    What's the address and tell me when your gonna be there... I'll be your "protection".

    Seriously though, has your boy ever been fucked with since he was white? He moved there for the cheap rent. Just follow Mr. LaJock's directions and don't look paranoid (easy target).

    If your on the west side, the dominicans will just try to offer you pericho.

    Do NOT Carry Large Sums of Money
    Do NOT wear EXPENSIVE FLASHY Clothing
    Do NOT look out of place (don't look like a tourist.)

    Look both ways before crossing the street and don't take candy from strangers.

    i'm from a very dangerous city (much worse than nyc)
    new york will treat you well, i see it as a fairly low-key, laid back, and generally safe place.

    in manhattan, there is basically nowhere you could go where you'd get fucked up just for being there and being white (there's few places like this at all in nyc, and you'd have to look hard to find them..you won't 'find' yourself suddenly in a shit neighborhood where you're in trouble)

    confidence can also be key.
    in a big city, people can sense fear and weakness.
    just look like you know what you're doing (even if you don't)

    you'll be fine anyway..
    as long as you aren't counting $$ on the street...
    new york is pretty fuckin chill

    that could be hard when first arriving with suitcases and shit...

    don't sweat it.. when i first went to nyc i was going to brooklyn at like 10 and got off at the wrong station, carrying suitcase and backback.. i had to walk for a while, at first i was a bit nervous..but its no thang. just know whats going on around you.

    before i went to nyc i looked over the maps to get an understand of where i would be going
    walking around with baggage and taking a map out wih a dubious appearance is not such a good idea

    just be aware of where your going and how to get there..
    why cant your friend just meet you up?

    yeah, what do i know.

    on the island of manhattan, no one is getting their ass beat for being white...no matter what hesh says

    maybe whiteboys who think they are something they aren't have run into problems.

    but shit, anyone who cannot spell asinine, but wants to use that word to describe a comment, is an idiot.

    baltimore is a dangerous and scary place.
    manhattan is not.

    I'm sure B'more can be really dangerous....but I wouldn't lump all of NYC together as being that safe. I'd imagine some beatings occur on the regular there.
