People have this perception that it's a dangerous place. For the most populated city in America, a majority-minority, it's safe. If she was within
Brooklyn and the Bronx she'd have some areas to look out for, but she should be fine regardless. Funniest thing I ever heard someone say, I'll point
out they are a "paranoid prepper", is that they'd never visit Manhattan again because they couldn't carry their firearm. Take a guess where in
America they're from and visit weekly, Detroit and Flint, Michigan. Don't ever get yourself paranoid to the point that you're psychologically
screwed up like that person. Cops patrol these streets on the regular, this is a strict city, your family is fine.
She wants to do "tourist stuff," tell her to stick to Manhattan. Museum of Natural History, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Central Park, Bryant Park
(nice place to relax), 5th Avenue (a bunch of stores), Rockefeller Center, Times Square, South Street Seaport. If you're going adventuring outside of
Manhattan you should be going with a local friend.
She'll enjoy herself.
