Alongside California, New York State is one of America’s busiest and most densely populated areas. As of 2020, New York State’s combined population is almost 20 million. New York City, one of New York State’s most popular cities, houses more than 8 million people in its 5 boroughs; Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island. Unfortunately, most metropolitan areas in the United States experience notable amounts of crime throughout the year. New York City is one of the US’ largest cities, so it’s no surprise that NYC regularly experiences more criminal activity than average. Research shows that NYC ranks 23 out of 100 on the calculated national crime index. This suggests New York City is safer than 23% of other equally large, densely populated American cities.
FBI databases are typically used to form statistical reports. Based on this data, NYC purportedly has a crime rate of 23 crimes per 1,000 residents. Criminal activity is also divided into two categories; violent crime and property crime. New York City’s annual violent crime rate tallies at around 7,790 per year - suggesting that 1 in every 285 NYC residents encounter violent crime yearly. NYC’s property crime rate is much higher. About 30,363 property crimes occur annually, suggesting that 1 in every 69 NYC residents may have their property vandalized or stolen. This data isn’t meant to paint New York City in a negative light, but it hopefully demonstrates how important it is to put safety first while traveling. Protect yourself from violent crimes by going about the city in a group and remaining alert at night. Protect yourself from property crimes by only carrying essential items on your person. Bounce can keep your other valuables and luggage safe and secure while you visit NYC.
“What’s the best way to get around New York City?”
New York City’s narrow, densely populated streets are difficult to drive through on most days. More often than not, it’s easier to navigate around NYC on foot - especially if your destination is minutes away. MTA subways and buses are ideal for long-distance travel, especially if you’re traveling from one borough to the next. If all else fails, you can hail a Yellow Taxi Cab if you’re in a hurry.
“Is public transportation in New York City safe?”
Yes, and for several reasons. New York City’s vast population means that other citizens will always be nearby. Robberies and assaults rarely occur during an NYC subway or bus ride. However, commuters should stay alert while they wait at train stations or bus stops, especially if they’re traveling alone. NYPD officers and security are present and willing to help in dire scenarios as well.
“What’s the best neighborhood to stay in New York City?”
According to statistics, NYC’s safest neighborhood is located on W 218th Street & Broadway - in Inwood, Manhattan.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the most popular landmarks in all of America, let alone New York City. Best of all, admission is very cheap; $25 per adult, $17 per senior, and $12 per student. The Met is also free to children under age 12.
“What's the best time of year to visit New York City?”
If you want a less packed experience, try to visit NYC in the middle of the year -between April and September. Conversely, visit NYC during November and December if you want a memorable New Year’s experience.
