Luggage storage NYC: safety
Luggage storage NYC can be fairly safe but it depends on which luggage storage service you are using. Some services offer insurance and a security seal for your luggage but not all of them. When it comes to carrying around luggage in NYC it depends also on where you are. Some spots in New York are safer than others. The safer spots include Tudor City, Carnegie Hill, Battery Park City, Beekman, Sutton Place, and Roosevelt Island.
Harlem has a long reputation of not being particularly safe but the good news is that over the years it is becoming safer and safer. Some spots become more dangerous at night such as Upper Harlem. Central Park is generally safe for tourists, especially now that cars cannot enter the park. However, it is advised that after dark you don’t enter the park alone as nighttime can bring some dangerous elements to it.
Battery Park City is considered one of the safest spots in New York and one of the best to raise a family in. Unlike some other locations, Battery Park City is considered safe even at night. Brooklyn is also considered generally safe to visit as a tourist during the day. However, some parts such as East New York, Vinegar Hill, Fort Greene, Williamsburg, DUMBO, and Crown Heights do have a bit more crime than some other safer parts of NYC. The safest parts of Queens are Malba, Belle Harbor, Fresh Meadows, and Upper Ditmars.
It is important to try to avoid pickpockets in NYC, especially in the subway. To minimize the possibility of your wallet being stolen – always keep it in your front pocket, preferably zipped up. You need to also insure your phone is not easily accessible to anyone other than you. Stay tuned to your environment and always be aware of where your wallet and phone are.

Frequently Asked Questions about New York City
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about New York City.
What’s the best way to get around?
The best and cheapest way to get around New York City is by using the subway. Fares are less than $3. For a week in New York, it’s a good idea to get an “Unlimited” 7-day Metrocard if you’re planning on taking it often. And free apps like Google Maps and Citymapper will have you navigating the subway like a local in no time.
Is the New York City subway safe?
The NYC subway is considered safe. Four million people use the subway every day, and the crime rate is actually low. The rate has been dropping rapidly since the 1990s and now in 2020, it is lower than ever.
Is New York City safe as a whole?
While New York City is sometimes portrayed as unsafe, it is actually safer than you might think. The crime rate in New York city is much lower than the national average. The only thing to really watch out for is pickpocketing so make sure you always keep your phone and money in a safe place. On top of that, New York City never sleeps which means there is usually always somebody around you and you're rarely really alone.
When is the best time to visit New York City?
Every season and time of the year offers something different to see in New York and there really is no bad time to visit the city. If you’re looking to keep your New York trip under budget, consider visiting in the late fall and winter when the price of New York travel is cheaper. If having a nice time under the sun is more important to you then spring and summer are the seasons for your trip to the Big Apple. However, with so many incredible museums, shows, and other activities, the cold won’t bother you anyway.
What's the best neighborhood to stay in New York City?
As usual it depends on your taste. Greenwich Village: Quirky and central, Greenwich Village is full of great bars and restaurants. It’s easy to get from here to other parts of the city. Plus it’s near Washington Square Park, one of the best people-watching places in town. The Upper West Side: The proximity to Central Park makes the UWS one of the best neighborhoods in New York. Close to major subway stops, it also makes navigating New York a breeze. Williamsburg: The hipster soul of New York, Williamsburg (in Brooklyn) offers tons of things to do—without the Manhattan price tag. It’s connected to Manhattan by the Williamsburg Bridge, which means it’s still easy to get into the city. Park Slope: Park Slope is a residential but exciting part of Brooklyn—it borders beautiful Prospect Park, and is in close proximity to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and the Brooklyn Museum. Plus, there are tons of great restaurants, bars, and shops.
How expensive is New York?
While New York can get quite expensive there are also ways to visit on a budget and not spend as much. Many museums in New York are based on donations, for example, and they often have “free” days. Plus it’s easy to grab a classic New York meal—a bagel with cream cheese, or a slice of pizza—for only a few dollars.
What are the best museums to visit in New York City?
It depends on your taste and what you're interested in but The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History are among the city’s best and most-visited. However, if you can, talk to a New Yorker who loves museums to get a true sense of what’s worth checking out.
Which New York City airport is the best to fly into?
The best airport for you depends on where you are staying in New York. However, JFK: JFK is in Jamaica, Queens. A taxi from JFK to Manhattan costs a flat fee of $52, but be sure to only take official yellow cabs. An Uber will probably run you $55 or more for this route. Just remember: this flat fee only applies to trips from JFK to Manhattan—not vice-versa! LaGuardia is in northern Queens, relatively close to Manhattan. Many of the options from LGA are the same as JFK: you can take a taxi, Uber, or use public transportation. Newark-Liberty is located in Newark, NJ—about 15 miles from NYC. The EWR AirTrain will take you to NJTransit or Amtrack trains (both of which go straight into Manhattan); you could also Uber or take a taxi.
How much does a 3-day trip to New York cost?
To see a lot of the city in just 3 days, we suggest you buy a ticket for a 2-day (or 3-day) Hop-on, Hop-Off bus tour. TIP: There are a few tourist passes, like the CityPASS and the Smart Destinations Build Your Own Pass that can save you up to 25% even if you are here for a short stay.
Is the NY subway safe at night?
Taking the subway in NYC isn't like taking the tube at night in London, but it's very safe. Just remember to use your street smarts, as you would in any large city and everything should be fine.
Is Brooklyn safe at night?
Brooklyn may have a tough reputation, but most of it is fairly safe, though visitors should always be careful walking around late at night on lightly trafficked streets.
Is New York more expensive than London?
The cost of living is about equal, with New York City being slightly more expensive. According to Numbeo.com, you'd need about $7,748.16 to maintain the same standard of life in New York that you could have in London for about $6,050.47.
Is LuggageHero safe?
LuggageHero is completely safe to use for luggage storage as the shops are monitored by our employees with regular checks performed. On top of that, your luggage and bags are insured for up to 3000$.
LuggageHero in the press
"LuggageHero, which offers online booking with a credit card — thus, eliminating the need for users to have local currency on hand — is one of the most recent players to expand its services. In December the company began operating in New York, where today it has some 250 locations."
"One solution is LuggageHero, which was already on the scene in Copenhagen and London, and has now expanded into New York. Its selling point is that it lets you store your luggage in a local shop, café or hotel, which is often more convenient than having to go to a storage facility at a train station."
"LuggageHero, which Jannik Lawaetz founded in 2016, currently has more than 300 storage locations in six cities (New York, London, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Madrid and Barcelona) and plans to expand to 39 cities by January 2020."
"LuggageHero founder and chief executive Jannik Lawaetz says that the concept was inspired by that mother of invention — necessity — and Airbnb. A couple of years ago, he and his girlfriend rented an apartment in Barcelona via the home-share service. They had a later flight on their day of departure and wanted to continue exploring the city, but didn't want to lug their suitcases around. "
