I have never felt unsafe in the area, and neither have the girls i know who live on 122nd. nyc parks are best avoided at night if you are alone. the entire university gets emails from campus security everytime there is a theft/robbery as well as when they apprehend suspects. I'd say i've received notice of maybe 10-15 such incidents over the course of a year. nothing unsurprising for urban life. columbia security patrols frequently (i see them on 122nd and the outer bounds a lot), and all the columbia buildings have security cameras which make the area a poor choice for mugging people. all in all, i feel totally safe here.AppsAbound wrote:I know that Columbia has housing north of 121st, is it not in a safe area?
I only requested being within walking distance of campus, so could potentially end up there. Anyone know ppl who have lived there and have thoughts to share?
I am glad to read this since I was just assigned housing at 122!
