One girl, one big city?

  1. So I'm contemplating a trip to NYC. I have a crazy schedule, so finding someone to go with me is a lot of work. Has anyone ever gone alone, and if so, did you feel safe? I have been there with family and had no problems. I have also been on several week long vacations alone with no problems. I am great with directions, and found it pretty easy to get around there, so I'm not afraid of getting lost. Just wondering what it would be like to be one little girl alone in one big city...

    You are very brave. I have gone on trips by myself but not too a big city. I didn't think anything of it. My mom, on the other hand, totally freaked out and was convinced I would be kidnapped and sold to the gypsies.

    Have fun and be safe.

    I've only been to NYC once, for a couple of days between a conference at Yale and meeting my US-based sibs in Cambridge. I was alone and loved it! I didn't feel unsafe at any point and my only regret is that I wasn't there for longer!

    I stayed at The Pod, a great hotel in Manhahattan, on East 51st Street near 3rd Avenue - it was fantastic and I'd definitely stay there again next time.

    It should be safe. Just avoid isolated alleys and things like that.
