It's true that there are 150-200 persons on the trains (1-2 / 4-6 lines) in midtown Manhattan , even 3.00 am in the weekdays?

Probably, depending on the night.

Oh yea, Freddy Adu has a llllllllllong way before he becomes the best futbol player....he has nothin on Totti, or Ronaldinho, or Rooney

Uh, no. The trains are not less safe at night. Despite popular perceptions, crime on NY public transit generally occurs during weekday business hours, rather than at night. Another false stereotype is transit crime by location. Manhattan transit lines have a much higher rate of crime than in the outer boroughs. Even the "bad' neighborhoods in the outer boroughs have lower crime rates than subway lines and stations in Manhattan.

Crime on the subways is down like 90% from 10 years ago. I've seen much more petty crime on RATP (Paris Metro and RER) than in New York.

Why New York City (the most important city in the world) hasn't a team of soccer? For me the Metrostars are a team of the New Jerse

Not sure. It was easier to just play in the Meadowlands at the time. There was some talk of changing Aqueduct racetrack over to a stadium for the Metrostars, which I think would be good, but that went nowhere.

I would say they should move to the West Side if the stadium gets built, which may happen, but they have plans to build their own place in Jersey somewhere.

A soccer (futbol) stadium would do very well in NYC...Latinos and Europeans would love it.

I say put them in with the Jets, build on at Willets Point, convert Aqueduct (shift the races to Belmont if possible), or build on SI, bt the NASCAR site.

The most crowded trains are the numbered lines. 4,5,6 and 7 tend to be the most packed. I seriously doubt you will find them standing room only at 4 AM, but there will be plenty of riders at any hour.

For the subways that most tourists would use, I have no doubt that trains would have enough riders for people to feel secure. Plus, many subway stations have overhead signs to help identify the middle cars for late night riders. Even the LIRR commuter trains out to the suburbs can be quite full at 1 to 2 AM. I'll be on a train packed with young teenagers (under 16) on a school night and wonder: Do their parents have any idea where their kids are?

Of course not. Trains do not magically become dangerous when the sun goes down. Stay in crowded cars if you feel uncomfortable.

I ride lines all the time late at night, never any problems, people are usually tired.

Soccer club? Maybe the NY Metrostars, I don't know. For European teams, I think Americans have only heard of Man U, Arsenal, Bayern, Milan and Real Madrid.

Maybe Liverpool, Everton, Aston Villa, Tottenham, Newcastle. Aren't popular Juventus, Inter (Adriano,Vieri), Barcelona (Ronaldinho), Ajax, Celtic, PSG, Roma (Totti) also?
What is the most player of soccer in the USA? Is it Beckham, Ronaldo, Rooney, Ronaldinho, Zidane, Totti, Raul, Adu, Shevchenko, Figo, Roberto Carlos, Tevez, or Maldini?
However the club most famous in the world is the MANCHESTER UNITED (74 millions of fans in the whole world)

Beckham and Ronaldo seem to be the best-known soccer players in the U.S. who are still playing professionally. But lots of people are familiar with Péle.

Anyway, the subways are pretty safe on weekends also, because so many people go out. I've been on the subways at midnight and it's like rush hour.

Weekends.

A bit of extra advice on subway safety: if you think someone's casing you, don't panic. Act natural, particularly when your stop comes up. If you think they're going to follow you, don't get off the train right away when your stop comes. Wait maybe five seconds after the doors open, then get off the train. If no one follows you, then maybe you're just being paranoid or they got the hint. If someone does follow you, then try and get help.

I've never been mugged or attacked, especially not on the subway. I did come close once, but I was in Bushwick and it was 11 at night — an uncommon time to take the subway in that area. I was with a friend and though it was obvious that the three guys were considering it, they backed off.

Other than that, I've been fine.

My grandfather was a subway conductor on the BMT. Safety rule for late night.... You will see over a small stretch of platform a board hanging from the ceiling (like a 1x4) with black and white diagonal stripes. You will always find the conductor in the car that stops in front of that sign. Ride that car late night.

Yes, I've ridden at all hours. The safest time on the subway is late at night, practically everyone is sleeping or dog-tired. The most recorded subway crime is during weekday afternoons, particularly after schools let out.

I would agree anecdotally, I've ridden the trains late, home from the bar many, many times and they are usually populated enough to at least give me the false impression I'm safe.

But, I also read the local neighborhood papers, (Brooklyn Heights Courier for me) and they run "Police Blotter" columns and I'm more than a little disheartened to read people get mugged, at gunpoint, at knifepoint in my neighborhood, Brooklyn Heights, supposedly one of the safest in the City, in broad daylight. Life holds no garantees.

There's really not much of a way for a rider to determine the total number of people on a train at a given time. You really only know how many people are in your car.
