hello guys this is my first post. I've been living in the lower Manhattan all my life and now moving to Harlem (Harlem river drive). I'm not quite familiar with the neighborhood. im wondering if you guys can give me your opinion about the area or the neighborhood. o btw would living on the first floor better or not with safety bars on all windows. thanks!

If you live here, and especially if you've lived here all of your life, go check it out for yourself. Plenty of people in the world would probably consider lower Manhattan unsafe, so why would you trust anonymous opinions on the internet over your own?

The area is fine during the daytime. I am not sure about night though (I can't say either way). So make a day trip up there and walk around with an open mind.

Most of Manhattan is safe now, and even the "unsafe" areas are relatively safe provided you avoid certain shops/bars/people.

This city is far from the jungle it used to be.
