What impressed you negatively?

"New Haven. The girl I was staying with gave me a map of the area and crossed off about 1/2 of it saying they were ''bad'' areas and dangerous for someone wearing a suit to walk in. I was accosted by two beggars on the short walk back to her appartment, and unlike NYC, there are not so many people around that one feels safe everywhere. Also, everyone made a big deal about a sandwitch shop where students like to go during the evening. It was a SANDWITCH shop!" Report Response
