That's a meme for somebody who has just told an outrageous lie. Is it so hard for you to accept that people can be in New York and not be hopelessly scared? Cuz I spent time in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and upper west side and didn't witness any crime, was never assaulted or robbed, in spite of what the right wing news outlets and uberpeople posters say New York is a remarkable city.
And let me also say if you're that scared there's lots and lots of other places you can go that don't cost nearly as much to live as New York. Lots more open space in the outside world too.
DON'T BE A BUNCH OF BITTER DIRTY CABBIES NYC. It's a great world out here
