"A great place to see by day"

Although New York is awesome, it can be a bit claustrophobic so it’s good to know there are some streets where there are plenty of trees mixed in with the living quarters to allow people to see some plants and hey, its good for the environment too. Supposedly at night it is a dangerous place to be in but we only went during the day time and it was lovely with a lot of people milling around. Its close to the college so there is a student vibe in the area which can be good too. We liked the street but I would say we never saw it when it is supposed to be at its worst.

"Wish it were safe - at all times of day - it could be a beautiful street"

St. Nicholas Terrace is up on the hill and is just behind City College. It is where everyone parks who goes to school there or lives in the surrounding area. It is right up against the park and during the day, it is quite safe to walk down it. It is also nice to walk down a street in NYC where it is COMPLETELY tree-lined. But, at night, the park is totally unsafe. The school often posts warnings to students to not walk through the park from St. Nicholas Terrace to the subway at 135th Street. The street is a little better since City College put in a dormitory, there are security guards that patrol the street, but overall it's not safe.
