This is the truth. It seems like the people on here have watched too much of the "Death Wish" series with Charles Bronson. Sure it has crime just like anywhere, but I feel safer in NYC than I do in Jersey City where my office is, especially in Manhattan. If you have a hotel that will allow you to park, you're in great shape. Or if you want to and can afford it time wise, you could stay in NJ and take either NJ Transit into the city or PATH.
