Did you really say don't go by to Brooklyn?? Where are you from ?? Not New York--obviously! Do you even live here??
You meant I am sure-do not go to Brooklyn___which is insane/stupid!

Brooklyn is the biggest borough in New York, and has some great neighborhoods, beautiful, perfectly safe, clean, very suburby and inexpensive areas (compared to Manhattan).
It is insulting for you to judge from what you I am sure have 'heard', or experienced-perhaps from going to 'certain areas' that-yes are still well not the most attractive, and yes even not the most safe at certain times---then again they may have been not attractive just to you???
And I am not going to label which ones are "unsafe" and which ones are "safe", because that would be biased.
I live and love living in South Brooklyn--it is home, it's beautiful, safe 'for me' full of great cafes, restaurants, bars, all while having a suburb feel, yet 40-50 minutes and poof---you are in Manhattan.

Brooklyn Heights--gorgeous! And is the most expensive area to live in outside of Manhattan---its a mini-Manhattan--literally!
Cobble Hill--gorgeous and yes safe! Carroll Gardens--you just have to go and see!
Williamsburg is Brooklyn's East Village $$$$.
Park Slope rocks!, and Prospect Heights is another great area!
Mind you ----there is good and bad everywhere----
but this is not NYC of the 80's, 90's or even early 2000's.
Bronx--the Mott Haven area---the real Little Italy is also amazing, Riverdale, Washington Heights, and on and on.
The Upper West Side yes is great--as are many other areas and outer boroughs.

Every area has good, bad and ugly.....explore and see for yourself and do not let some dope scare you into not visiting Brooklyn---that's just insulting and discriminatory! If you do not want to or like seeing other cultures, then don't move here.
-----
So again, if you don't know how to answer the question asked above---please do not give an ignorant answer such as 'don't go by Brooklyn'!
What are you kidding??

If you read the question you will notice that she asked for safe places in Manhattan. Brooklyn is not in Manhattan.

According to a Nabewise search (just click on Nabewise.com), the safest area that would fit your budget would be the Upper West Side. I live there currently and I definitely feel alright walking to a grocery or convenience store late at night. There are definitely both expensive and cheap finds, so definitely do your research. You can probably go on Craigslist but a safer, more professional bet would be Nakedapartments.com -- it's a fantastic resource especially for those without experience renting in the city.

Inwood and Washington Heights (above 165th Street on the Columbia Medical School campus) are both very safe places to live and have spacious one bedrooms and studios at or under $1500. If you check DNAinfo.com's crime stats, you will see that Inwood ranked the third safest neighborhood in Manhattan. I have lived in Inwood since 2003 and absolutely love it. I have tons of listings in the area. If you are interested, please email me at erin@moresquarefeet.com.

Is the work place safe?/ Is the neighborhood safe???

Astoria is pretty safe too. My bro and his girlfriend live up there and have done so for years. Don't go by Brooklyn.
