Nope … you’re almost guaranteed to be murdered, cut up into tiny pieces, eaten, and then murdered again.

Why do you think it would be dangerous to ride in an Uber in Queens after midnight?

I have, a few times. Coming home to Manhattan from my friend’s and after a concert. It’s fine.

Understandable!! Wasn’t trying to sound judgmental… was actually wondering why you thought that. Other people are cracking jokes not knowing your situation 😅

I used to work the late shift in Chicago (before moving to NY) and pretty much always Ubered home for safety reasons. Also cuz the train was a long walk from the office. Anddd I was working at Uber so I got a discount 🙃.

But yeah, Uber and Lyft it home late at night if you have the means to do so! Totally fine!

Relative. Is it safer than walking or than the subway? Generally yes. Is it safer than having your own car and driving? Well, no. Just depends on what your options are and weigh them against each other, anything can happen at any moment nothing is 100% safe. But if your alternative is to walk or take public transportation - take the Uber. The odds are higher of it being safe.

My thoughts exactly! And yes, there is 10-11 minutes walk from the workplace to the subway and the neighborhood is pretty quiet.

As long as you have your driver stop to tip random pedestrians at least every other block you should be fine

This is my third year living in New York! I think something that I wish I knew earlier was the size and ease of transportation from some areas.

I would personally recommend looking for living in boroughs like
- Brooklyn

-Bronx

Some areas in these boroughs are way lower in rent than Manhattan and could easily get you to your job with one train ride.

A commute may help you save thousands a year. This hopefully could get you paying your own mortgage instead of rent
