I've gotta disagree with you guys here. Having lived in NYC for my whole life; I get the impression that people that haven't spent a good amount of time here recently still have a very 'North Bronx during the crack pandemic' view of life here. While there are still some entirely unsafe neighborhoods here, I avoid them completely (which isn't hard as they're way the hell up in the bronx or wayyyy out in brooklyn. These days there are a lot more cops on the street, and I can assure you that no thief more than a day out of thief school would spend more than a split second near my bike with the Xena wailing. That said- I'm not worried about pissing them off- these guys are mainly professionals, and seek targets of opportunity. My bike is not one of these targets; so I feel good about not being the next to have my plates stolen. That said- I only park in the neighborhood my friend lost his plates in once a month or so for an hour. Not overly worried.
