    My only advice is to bring plenty of small bills to give to the muggers and when you are inevitably confruted by a super-criminal, extend your hands high above your had to facilitate extrication.

    At least
    , that's been my experience.

    If you can afford to rent in Manhattan, you'll be fine. Honestly, it is pretty safe on that island. There may be a few block here and there that are not completely gentrified. I'd narrow it down to a few places you want, and just check out that area, or check back here and ask. Generally, you'd want to be near a subway station so it is easy to get around.

    If you are really worried about it, find something in midtown on Park.

    I miss the seedyness of 42nd street w theaters boarded up, peep shows, hookers and other zoo animals roaming freely after dark. Walking all the way down that block after midnight was a real E ticket ride

    I don't think I ever got that far in Final Fight. Must've been a secret level or something.
