New York crime getting out of hand?
With the recent murder of Christina Lee (homeless person followed her into her home in Chinatown and stabbed her), and a bunch of other big news murder cases (woman pushed off onto subway track, asian guy beaten up) especially involving asian community, is New York still considered safe enough?
I ask because as an Asian female incoming analyst to New York, I have been seriously deliberating over whether I should take the job up in the end, as it seems so dangerous and I have this constant worry about not being able to make it out of the analyst program alive (lol but fr). Coupled with that, my asian family has been bugging me with all these big crimes against asians in new york sending me the articles and saying it's not safe etc.
Is it reasonable to request for HR to let me continue the analyst program in my hometown or request for full remote? I don't know man..or should I just start searching for alternatives in other safer locations. I don't know if I'm just being overly paranoid but with a string of events like this, it really makes it seem like a legitimate safety concern .
Anyone has thoughts about this? Or anyone in the same boat thinking the same lol?
