Default Is Manhattan a safe city to live in?

I've been thinking of moving there for a long time now. Is it safe? Also which is the safest out of LA, Miami or NYC?

Unless you got an awesome job already lined up you probably can't afford to live in Manhattan

NY has more areas right now that are safe to live than either LA or Miami.

Yes even Harlem and the LES have cleaned up their acts since the 90's. Washington Heights is still the hood but the rest of Manhattan is totally fine and safe.

That is probably good advice for > 95% of the the places in the world though. Having said that I've walked through there by myself around midnight - 1 with my Dad. We went to a Knicks game then went out for a few drinks after that (I'm not sure what area exactly but every place we went to we were pretty much the only white people there - not that that makes it more dangerous, I'm just not sure what neighborhood we were in) then we decided to just walk back to where we were staying. I thought it all seemed pretty safe though.

A cousin of mine was almost abducted there in the late 90's. She was walking on the street alone in the middle of the day. A van pulled up, a guy jumped out and grabbed her and tried to hurl her into the van. Her head smacked the top of the van and then she was able to get away from the attacker. She ran into a subway station and called for help.

Also had a grandfather that was mugged and murdered their in 2002.

One of the safest places you could be. Very expensive though.

Hearing about abductions give me chills. That's the worst thing that I'd ever have to go through imo. Children get kidnapped everywhere in the world anyway so it's not like that's gonna prevent me from going there, unless there are a big amount of abductions.

That must have been tough for you. Anyway, people get mugged everywhere in the world so it's not a huge deal for me.

if youre talking about the busy parts of Manhattan that everyone goes to, yeah its very safe (aside from all the drunk people) and very expensive. NYC as a whole is a lot safer than it was say 20 years ago. Its only when you live in the hood areas when you gotta be careful.

Manhattan does not equal NYC. You can live in NYC and not ever go to Manhattan. For a lot of young folks, Manhattan is not even the desirable place to be, this is mostly due to rent, but now even folks who could afford it prefer to live in the other neighborhoods filled with young people.
