Ahhhh, New York City! There’s absolutely no place like it on earth. The constant hustle, the worlds of opportunity, the food…living in NYC is truly a dream come true – for some. While NYC may seem like an idyllic, candy-colored dream for outsiders, those familiar with her streets know there are some ugly truths behind the glitz and glam. Luckily, we’ve done our research and have outlined the 15 safest neighborhoods in NYC.
