Although New York City is an incredible place to visit, it is really important to keep safe. Here are some of my top tips to help you keep safe in the city:
Stick to main streets and pathways and always cross at the intersection.
Be hyper-vigilant at night and stick to well-lit, populated streets.
Buy MetroCards only from approved vendors in the station.
Keep your belongings close and pay attention to your surroundings.
Avoid deserted blocks in unfamiliar neighbourhoods.
Limit the amount of money you’re carrying around with you.
Don’t use empty subway carriages at night.
Be careful when you’re buying tickets for Broadway shows – if they’re super cheap, it's probably too good to be true.
