Ted from Iowa says:
It's because everywhere else in BK is hipsters, and hipsters couldn't be bothered to do ANYTHING, even assault someone.

True story.

Lived in Bay Ridge from Elsewhere now says:
Bay Ridge is quiet and sedate and more like a Long Island suburban town and that's why it feels safe to its residents. But as a woman those same things made me feel less safe living there because the streets were completely desolate in the evening. I would walk the entire way home from the train and never pass anybody because everybody drove and it's not a commuter neighborhood. And so it always struck me as very easy for assaults on women to happen there. I am now much more comfortable living in a neighborhood where there are always people out and about on the sidewalks and sitting on corners and stoops.

The dark streets with the 4 story brownstones and tall trees in Park Slope creep me out at night.
