Terrible New York

Sometimes I feel I never want to live in New York City ever again.

And move to a city where people don't get shot? New York is one of the safest big cities in the country. Of course, if decide to live somewhere where this type of shit pretty much never happens, you'll probably end up somewhere boring and miserable (Kennan?).

You might be right.

NY has improved by leaps and bounds in terms of violent crime over the past couple decades, but reading news like this, where the victim just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, its definitely disturbing.

As naive of me as it may be, I like to believe that if I stay out of bad neighborhoods, don't try to start conflicts and generally mind my own business, I won't have to deal with this type of terrible situation. Reading about something as shitty as this kind of jars that view of the world directly around me.
