Hi,

I had posted about this in the nyc_for_free community, but it was suggested that i look here. I apologize if anyone already read this over there..

just curious about bay ridge, bk, as it looks like i'll be moving there soon. i just want to know that i'll be safe walking alone late at night as a little, white girl. i get the feeling that bay ridge is a pretty secure area, but just wanted to be sure..

also, was hoping i might be referred to any cool things to do: coffee shops, quirky clothing or toy stores, good bars (no hip hop or crotchy dancing spots, just something chill or with a rock n' roll vibe), etc.

any help would be really appreciated.

thanks.

Bay Ridge is fine, except for those rascally tornadoes. ^_^

I lived in BayRidge (71st and Colonial Rd.) until 2003. Totally safe, fantasic place. I hated leaving. I'm sure little has changed aside from that tornado damage. Here's two places I'm pretty sure still exist...

Casa Pepe
114 Bay Ridge Ave, Brooklyn, NY
(718) 833-8865

Griswold’s Pub
7726 Third Ave. at 78th St. (R to 77th St.) (

My dad and ex used to live in the area. It's pretty nice. Shops are there, lots of places are in the area. The only thing is the trains are sometimes slow and hampered by repair work, but it's still a nice neighborhood.

I actually have popcorn for this one. Sweet!

Has anybody remarked on the "little, white girl" also not wanting recommendations for "hip hop or crotchy dancing spots" yet? Both bits were lacking in the nyc_for_free post, by the way. Apparently it's only newyorkers that's the haven for the racially obtuse.

But is Bay Ridge? Inquiring minds want to know...

oh, come on already.

i didn't mean hip hop as a racial suggestive, which i'll point out again the inference of which is a lot more racist than anything i said.

i don't like hip hop, and many bars play that sort of music where people (of all races) come and gyrate. that's not my scene.

No. You will not be safe. There is nothing to do but fear. WELCOME TO RAPE CITY.

lol prussian blue. You're just an ass-kicking waiting to happen, aren't you?
13th-Nov-2007 10:35 am (UTC)
Wait wait wait...

You're trying to say this isn't a race issue...

Yet, you're listening to a song that has lyrics that saying how 'Times are very tough now for a proud White man to live.'?

You can't be fucking serious.
13th-Nov-2007 01:20 pm (UTC)
you're right. i'm not.

i was poking fun at a situation being taking way too out of hand. i added the song much after the original post. sadly, no one seemed to catch on to that.
