OK, so I have a girlfriend who is planning on studying in New York. She wants to live in the city primarily because she does not feel that living,
say, in New Jersey and commuting into the city is safe. She has heard lots of horror stories about people and especially women who are alone getting
raped, murdered, mugged, etc. on the train. I insist that thousands commute to NYC every day with no problem. Furthermore, my father thinks there
should not be a problem if she sticks to popular departure times.
What do you guys know about the safety or lack thereof of commuter rail to NYC?
