    Is this the day and age where more and more of these are happening or are we just more aware of what has always happened?

    Oh darn, I was considering a trip to New York to visit the ESB, among other places, so that's a bit off-putting. :rolleyes:

    You've more chance of being killed by a car crossing the road than ending up in an incident like that.

    Yes, crossing the street in NYC must look rather perilous, and I don't DARE want to even THINK about the No-Man's Land that is the New York Subway. :eek:

    Are you serious??

    Nothing wrong with the NYC subway either IMO.

    Used it many times to go to different places at different times of day or night.

    Sorry, but that's nonsense. I presume from that statement that you have been to New York recently?

    I'd feel safer on the New York subway at night than I would walking round my local town centre at night.

    My wife also said NYC is the safest feeling city she's ever been in (she went with friends)
    Constant and plentiful police presence.

    I felt safer living in N.I during the Troubles than I did when I moved to London!

    Out of interest, just how bad is London?

    Here in North Staffs I feel very safe.

    I've always felt incredibly safe at any time of day or night in London, NYC felt the same to me. (Although like some parts of London, some parts of NYC didn't 'feel safe')

    Interestingly enough, my daughter is off to New York to work for Google in Manhattan. She's got her 5 year visa and is off at the start of September. Looking forward to going out there to visit! :smashin:

    There are rumours that the gunman only fired 3 shots, all at the man he killed, and that all of the injured were hit by police.



    If it's true it seems that NYC have started fielding their clone army.

    I went to new York last year, had a fantastic time, and not once was made to feel unsafe, apart from the time a security guard climbed out of a brincs money wagon, with easily the biggest gun I've ever seen, I swear if he'd shot it he would have landed in new jersey!!

    I'm glad to hear these encouraging stories about NYC, makes me even more hyped to go now! Thanks, all! :thumbsup:

    BTW, sorry if I'm bashing this great city, but I've always wanted to go there, but incidents like this shooting don't help, but I'm sure they are quite rare indeed.

    Also, before I plan such a trip, my Dad's off to Charlotte, NC for two weeks as it is, and I have to babysit the family dog whilst he's away. When he comes back, I'll start a thread about going to the States for the first time and what I should prepare.

    I think officers may soon be spending more time on the range if that is true. Truly shocking figures.

    Depends on what part of London. I'd have no problem walking round tottenham court road or camden late at night alone but wouldn't feel too comfortable doing so in some parts of Brixton.
