I've travelled a fair bit on my own and this is by far the safest and friendliest city I have ever been to.
Look at a map for less than a minute on any street corner and somebody will come and offer their help. I've never been one for going to restaurants on my own but sometimes it's necessary.
This city is the only place I have felt comfortable doing this, no matter what day it is or what time of day.
Most importantly I have never felt so safe walking around a city on my own at night. How can you not be safe in the city that never sleeps? If you are in any doubt there is always a shop open that you can duck into.
I've always stayed in Greenwich or Chelsea and have never had a problem walking around at any hour of the night.
Of course going on holiday is more fun with a friend, but if you are travelling on your own I would highly recommend a stopover in New York.
