New York City is the most populated city in the states—its metropolitan area is home to about 19 million of people. It is not the biggest city in the world, however; Tokyo holds that title currently. Still, sitting at spot number 9 is not too bad a feat either. It just goes to prove that the city indeed deserves every title and moniker associated with it. Furthermore, New York City is also the most visited city in the states—it sees more than 50 million of tourists visiting every year. Of all huge metropolises in the states, NYC is the safest. Its crime rate per inhabitant is even lower compared to the national average. The low crime rate in the city does not translate well compared with its high traffic of tourists. Theft is common with tourists visiting NY.
The data shows that the overall risk of the city is at medium level, as is the level of pickpockets risk. Mugging and kidnapping risk in NYC is pretty low although visitors are still advised that they avoid certain parts of the city. The city’s scams risk is also low, as is the case with its transport and taxis risk. Although there can be some occurrences of blizzard or floods in NYC, its natural disasters risk is low.
Manhattan is the most famous island within the area of the city. It is also one of the five boroughs constituting the entire city. Manhattan is separated into three regions: uptown, midtown, and downtown. Most of the city’s main attractions are located in this borough. Manhattan was dubbed the safest city in the US in 2016. Brooklyn is located across Manhattan, with 3 bridges (the Brooklyn Bridge is the most famous) and a tunnel connecting the two boroughs. Brooklyn is the most populated out of the 5 boroughs.
