Hello. I have a 20 year old daughter who is looking at some places on Rogers (Prospect Pl, Park Pl, Sterling area). She would be sharing with 3 other young women all early to mid 20's. They need to rent a place soon and have found reasonably priced and decent options there. They've walked around the neighborhood during the day and at night and all said they feel pretty comfortable with it. But, the crime stats seem pretty high and I'm wondering if this is a safe area for them.
Two have lived in other areas of NYC and two, including my daughter, are new to the city. She will be a student at a college in Manhattan and is required to dress "business casual" for school (actually has very little money or possessions but because of wardrobe requirements may appear to be more well off).
I'd appreciate honest feedback on
1.) general safety of this part of Crown Heights esp. for young single women
2.) safety of walking home from the subway at night(would most likely come down Park Pl from the stop there since it's closer or could get off at Franklin/Eastern and walk down to Rogers if that's safer)
3.) Any general safety tips (esp. for gals from the burbs and new to the city) and crime hot spots in Crown Heights to avoid
Thanks so much in advance for your time and advice!
