Although I have never been there before, I would probably still go. Since Sept.11, they have taken measures in order to improve security, which I think makes flying even safer.

First off you and series should meet sometime.

Second, I have no reason to go to new york, and don't plan on visiting anytime soon for no reason.

Third, no I am not scared to visit new york.

with the (lack of) time i have, it doesn't look like i'm going anytime soon.
in all reality, 2800+ people died in nyc, out of 16 million. i have a better chance of getting my wallet stolen than getting hit in another attack. (and there's not much chance of my wallet getting stolen either, with all 25 dollars i have to my name.)

As I went to visit Ground Zero in February, no, I'm not afraid. It was probably one of the more solemn experiences of my meager 29 years.

As a quick side note...I was in Newark NJ about to take the PATH (Port Authority Trans Hudson) into NYC. The PATH's NYC hub was the World Trade center, had my brother in law and I left 45 minutes earlier, we would have been there at the time the planes struck....Therefore....I HAD to go back.

What made you ask this question anyway?

No! I was on the B1 - level of 2WTC as the first plane hit and outside as the second, and saw building 2 come right before my eyes. In all honesty, for quite a while whenever I went to sleep it is all I would see. Its funny before 9/11, I would say to my coworkers of how they lived through the vietnam war, watergate, cuban invasion, the dawning of the computer and the internet and how my generation may never see anything on such a scale; now if I could I would take all back and never experience anything so !@#$%. Its almost a year later and this is what I am doing, I am continuing on my career goals, getting married next month and going to live everyday to fullest never forgetting and look forward to the next and now matter how much bad their is in this world their is more good, that's what I learned

Of course not. It's sad that we have to live differently. I was thinking that during the 4th of July fireworks in St. Louis....after being searched by the US Army just to be allowed to see the show in front of the Gateway Arch.

No. It's the pick-pockets, muggers, murderers,
rapists, and prostitutes that scare me.

Not to mention the "actors."

knock out of it already.
and stop thinking that New York City is dangerous.

oh, and ethic, maybe you should reconsider your opinion once you visit New York. I would be suprised if you can find at least one of the types of people you mentioned everyday in New York. If it's the movies you're watching, snap out of it. Rumors are bad for you.

I think New York is a lot safer in terms of pick-pockets and muggers etc., since Giuliani. I'd say London's worse.

Regarding Sept. 11th; we shouldn't let the animals, which carried out the attacks get what they want by scaring us. Also, the chances of another attack in the same place are highly unlikely.

mimes? can you give more detail about your response? as a New Yorker, the people I see everyday are no different than the people I see in other countries.

Well, I live in a city that probably has the highest crime rate in the
world (honestly), so i've been exposed to lot's of crap.
I doubt i'd be scared.

I would love to get the chance to go to New York, along with many other places.
