    From Wikipedia -

    On January 28, 2007 a woman named Roberta Shalaby was found badly beaten on the sidewalk outside the Hells Angels' clubhouse in New York City. The resulting investigation by the NYPD has been criticized by the group for its intensity. The police were refused access to the Hells Angels club-house and responded by closing off the area, setting up sniper positions, and sending in armored personnel carriers.[20] After obtaining a warrant, the police searched the club-house and arrested one Hells Angel who was later released. The group claims to have no connection with the beating of Roberta Shalaby. Five security cameras cover the entrance to the New York chapter's East 3rd Street club house, but the NY HAMC maintains nobody knows how Shalaby was beaten nearly to death at their front door. The members were later exonerated and the club is now suing the city of New York for damages to their clubhouse.

    Some people say you are safer these days on the Hell's Angels block as they do not want additional trouble and keep tabs on their surroundings. At the very least expect a lot of motorcycle noise if your apt. faces the street.

    I can see Stuy Town


    I know a few people who live on that exact block - they all claim its safer BECAUSE the Hells Angels are there (basically, exactly what Stache said)

    and anyways - it's the east village- it's basically all students and recent grads.

    Very safe. Lots of students, young people, tourists almost 24 hrs/day
