Does anyone feel less safe in Fort Greene/Clinton Hill thanks to the two recent shootings on Fulton and Vanderbilt? I have lived in the area for five years, almost three on Fulton near where the two shootings took place, but am concerned about staying in the area because of the recent crime. I know that the 24 hour diner, bar and bodega do not help and late-night drunken fights are per usual in the area (thus I try to stay inside). But the shooting on December 17th happened to a man who simply walked off the c train and the shooting last early morning happened (although I'm not believing the reporting fuly) to a man protecting his girlfriend in the diner. These are things that can "happen to anyone."
FYI, I am a single white female who has grown to just accept th cat-calling, verbal harassment and threat of muggings. However gun shots are another thing entirely. Is anyone else thinking of moving?
Also, I used to feel safer about the fact that I was so close to the c train at Clinton Washington, so that I did not have to walk in the dark residential streets alone at night if I am coming home at 11 or 12 at night (doesn't happen too often) but now of course the problem seems to be the Fulton street between Clinton and Vanderbilt, only!
