Keeping your Car and yourself Safe
Although New York City is much safer and friendlier now than it was in the 70s and 80s, it is unfortunately not free from crime (crimes committed against an individual as well as their property). Staying safe in NYC is easy if you are mindful. This is especially the case when bringing a car to NYC.
Finding a parking spot in Manhattan can be a nightmare. Finding a spot in highly trafficked, popular areas are rare, which forces drivers to look for low-trafficked areas. Spots might be ample in areas that don't have a lot of pedestrians or shops, but those areas tend to attract criminal behavior. Criminals prefer to act when no one is around to catch them. It is not uncommon for cars to be stolen, vandalized, or burglarized.
If you are coming into the city at night, alone or with a very small group, try and park your car in well-lit areas. As mentioned above, crime thrives in anonymity; dark places are breeding grounds for bad actions.
