Photo by myself, around 28th Street and Broadway, in the Flatiron District.
Even on dark streets, you can find people wandering around until late.
This photo was taken Thursday night. It was nice and summery outside, perfect long-walk-after-dinner weather.
Not many businesses are open in this area at night, yet there is a sense of safety. I'm not sure where the line is drawn between 'safe' and 'unsafe', but a line definitely exists.
The same area must have been desolate and dangerous a few decades ago.
