My 18 year old son is going to take a bus from Boston to NYC to see the opera. Is it dangerous
for him to walk to the Port Authority?

He will walk from the Port Authority Bus Terminal to Lincoln Center in the afternoon. After the show he will need to get back to the Port Authority to catch the bus back home, between 10 and 11. My question is, is the walk through that part of New York dangerous? Should he take a cab, or is it safe enough to walk. Neither he nor I are NYC experts. We tend to think of it as being filled with prowling bands of muggers and feral bond traders. But we also know that our opinions come from watching TV news, and are therefore considerably less grounded in reality as the works of Dashiell Hammett.
