Actually, I was just going to post that..
Its really a misconception that all of New York City is some kind of ghetto. Joe and I live about an hour from the city, and I'm there quite frequently. The only part that isn't really pleasant, compared to the other parts, is Harlem simply because it looks rundown.
They have cleaned up Harlem a lot though, and continue to do so. I hope in a few years we can see Harlem to be a clean part of New York where people can enjoy themselves..
As for parts like Manhattan, their great..
