14. New York City, New York
You can white wash Time’s Square until there’s nothing but tourist traps and chain restaurants, but New York’s massive population will always breed a certain amount of crime. When you cram 8.5 million people into such a small space some crime is just going to happen. On the whole, New York is fairly safe especially in tourist-y areas, but there are obviously certain (typically well-defined) sections of the city where you should keep your head on a swivel.
