  1. I don’t think many people think of 23rd street as a cross street to be concerned with, but reading the police report above about the guy attacking a couple reminds me why I avoid 23rd and use another street when walking crosstown, and that is simply that 23rd street is not safe.

    Between Bellevue, various methadone clinics near 23rd, and an obvious drug addicted population that flock to 23rd street, I have seen instances like this becoming more frequent on 23rd. I’ve had a man swing at me on 23rd and Park, not to rob me, but just because he was high and had glaring mental problems. I’ve seen a few others in similar situations, and it has only ever been on 23rd.
