... of MOST DANGEROUS CITIES in AMERICA. Here is the link, followed by the complete list of Top 100 ... I went ahead and emphasized the NYS cities. I would note that Lewiston, NY is NOT on the list.

And for the sake of "fairness" (that being the most important word and goal in America), I will note that my area of Atlanta came in at #33. I would also note that I live some 25 miles north of that city, that I venture into that city as infrequently as possible and that I am always accompanied by my friends - Glock, or Smith and Wesson. ;) ... angerous/#

I see New Haven , Hartford and New London are all ranked in the top 50. Exactly after 7PM, only venture into these areas with the necessary defensive capabilities.

As a kid growing up in once rural NW CT, I never fully understood why my Dad (former WW2 Marine) always traveled "locked and loaded" on vacation trips to dangerous destination points (Cape Cod -60's, Maine Seacoast, Nova Scotia ,Adirondacks. Green Mountains) . Now, I fully understand based on the current climate, he experienced a bit of paranoia for obvious reasons.

I thought this was pertinent to the conversation on this board awhile back about safety of NU students ... following the death of a student in an off-campus apt.

I know we have acquired a lot of debt for the science building and our current dorms(not apartments) are debt free but we need to improve student housing to keep more kids on campus. I recently proposed to the university that we have a mini campaign to build four more houses in Varsity Village using all equity, about $4 million. You can put your name on one of the then 10 houses for about $300K. Whether we do that, or find another way to do it we need to find a way to replace current obsolete dorms, like Clet. Than we can handle debt for new incremental housing. I think kids want independence particularly in their junior and senior years so building more houses and apartments is the way to go

Agree, NU should institute a 4 year residency requirement which would alleviate any adverse off campus incidents.
