There Is Danger Everywhere
This is true. New York City is the kind of place where everybody is in wild disbelief when a 24-hour period passes without anyone being violently attacked. And Brooklyn in particular has seen a rise of robberies in Prospect Park. Prospect Park! Where people are supposed to be able to relax. Danger, as I said, is everywhere. And, of course, there's also danger of the natural disaster kind, as we saw in October with Hurricane Sandy. Plus, we get earthquakes! Many geologists have predicted that the next Big One could actually take place on the East Coast. The last major East Coast earthquake (a 5.3 on the Richter Scale, in 1884) had an epicenter right off the coast of Brooklyn. Bottom line? Be afraid. Be very afraid.
