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.

DONT EVEN WORRY ABOUT IT. USE COMMON SENSE STREET SMARTS LIKE YOU WOULD IN ANY OTHER LOCATION ON EARTH.

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.

lol

 

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.

in manhattan south in 2003, there were 23 murders and 1,600 felony assaults. over the whole entire year.

 

manhattan north in 2003, 60 murders and 2600 felony assaults.

 

http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/html/pct/cspdf.html

 

not bad for 2.5 MILLION people

 

 

for comparison:

 

in baltimore 2001 there were 256 murders and 8500 aggravated assaults

 

http://baltimore.areaconnect.com/crime1.htm

 

and this, sadly, is for 650,000 people (less than ONE QUARTER of manhattan's)

No Problem.. first off .. 156th and Broadway is Washington Heights ,not Harlem .. And the mix of people divided from ten is about 6 Dominican, 2 black ,1 white and 1 other .. you will be camped out two blocks from a wonderful view of New Jersey and the Hudson River , George Washington Bridge west. And appx ten blocks to your East you will be a bridges walk from Yankee Stadium. The neighborhood is pretty fair during the day aside the witnessing of a few narcotic sales.. No worry the days of turf wars are over , there will be no stray bullets to dodge. Most of your neigbors will attempt to peddle you extasy pills and Half ass Hydroponic Marijuana . There is a train station on 157th and Broadway (1 line) and two blocks up the hill East is the D & A line that will both sweep you into midtown manhattan within ten to fifteen minutes ..

 

The thickness of police presence is bananas ,so you wont have to be worried about being mugged, there is enough money floating around up there from other activities ! ENJOY

find a bagel shop and chill there all day everyday. Get to know the guys really well and give them nicknames. Bring in your friends and introduce them. Then one day, just vanish. They wont know what hit them OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
