Travel there, no. Live there, yes.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 6/6/06 - 1:27:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would still travel there anyway.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 6/6/06 - 1:28:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, I'd still travel there if there was anything worth seeing. I definitely would not live there though.

I was worried going into detroit for a concert in a small venue. We were in what would be percieved as a bad neighborhood but i found the locals to be quite nice

The high crime cities I've been to include San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, New York, Mexico City, and Bangkok, so I'd say it isn't a huge concern for a visit. As long as you take precautions you're unlikely to have anything bad happen. The one pickpocket attempt I did have during the 3 1/2 months I was in Mexico was in a small town in the mountains of Michoacan.

Nah, a lot of that seems to by hype.

It couldnt positively influence it.

There's crime everywhere, though. If it was REAL high, I might not consider it.

der de der der derr

I do not research crime rates when I research my holiday destination.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 12/11/06 - 6:13:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
Come on now. If you are such a person to research that, you'd be looking to make sure you are safe, right? Then YES!
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 12/12/06 - 9:13:10 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, somehow it will affect my decision.
14 yrs ago - Monday 2/19/07 - 12:07:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes. It's the first thing I check before traveling.
14 yrs ago - Monday 2/19/07 - 12:13:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would still travel there, I'll just be a little more cautious is all.

That's why I don't travel to or through Gary.
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 6/10/07 - 12:38:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
Again, travel, no; live, yes.
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 6/10/07 - 12:40:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
Not at all.
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 7/11/07 - 1:21:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
I grew up going to Detroit for shows, etc.

What city could I worry about?

13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 8/14/07 - 4:21:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Funny thing, someone mentioned Gary. Yeah. Northwestern Indiana/Northeastern Illinois do have high crime. My mom and I searched forever for a town around there to stay at that didn't have high crime for when we went to Chicago. And we wouldn't go to the south side of Chicago.

And I will NEVER go to Gary. It has the highest crime rate in the entire US. I might be a lucky person, but I'm not stupid. lol

13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 8/14/07 - 4:25:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I've been to lots of cities with extremely high crime rates. Just do your homework.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 9/10/07 - 6:40:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I've been to Detroit. Nothing happened.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 11/5/07 - 4:49:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not if I really wanted to go there.

A lot of the large cities that I have been to (in the US, Europe and Asia) have high crime rates, but nothing bad has happened to me.

Just be smart when you travel.

New Orleans has a high crime rate, but I'd still like to go there someday. Just not alone. I'd bring a guy.
