    Hi to everybody,
    I am new here, but I have a very important question.
    Coud you tell be anything about situation in Bedford-Stuyvesant, East New York, Ocean Hill, Bushwick?Is it still bad gang areas?
    I used to live temporarily in St Island in a nice area, but my bestfriend moved to Halsey Av (J) and I was planning to live with her, but I didn't know it was in a such area...
    She is Spanish, I am European. I am not racist at all, I have friends of all colours,but I want to feel safe.
    I hope you could help me...
    What is more safe...St Island (close to Saint George) or Halsey Av, Brooklyn.

    It looks like there is a 1 am curfew in Central Park. At least according to this video. Can't say I had heard of it before myself.

    Besides, some of you here probably love hanging around the park at 3 am. Just like this guy did.

I have other friends who have slept in the park over night.

    But ignore what everyone has said and go ahead believing the Park is dangerous, perpetuate the false truths. I will tell you one thing though, people that think they are going to run into trouble, usually do, it just works out like that.
    Sorry Ablarc but this is the quote I meant to post. So Noyoka, you can walk CP at 3 am?

    Ever run into this guy?

    CP closes at 1AM. If you're in there at 3AM you stand chance of interacting with NYPD.
