I live in that area and I’ve noticed in the past 2 years or so, the area from around 8th/9th down to 5th…..Jefferson/Adams/Grand/Clinton/Willow……is getting pretty bad….and a hotbed for muggings and armed robberies.

I was mugged on 7th + Adams myself.

Time to move!

I think just about anywhere that doesn’t have non-stop business/transit traffic (like the areas you mention) lend themselves to fleeting moments of opportunity for the bad guys. Maybe one block, for a minute or two, no one is around, then turn the corner, and a few random people pass by. Since the blocks are small here, if you see no one around or someone lurking (trust the “hair stands up on the back of your neck test”) just turn around, slight detour, and keep your eyes open.

As for Sean Combs/Puff Daddy/P. Diddy/Dirty Money, he has been causing a few problems between NY and NJ the past couple days.
