How safe is it to park a car (in a hotel lot) for a couple of days and nights in Fort Lee? The hotel is at the terminus of the GWB.

Wow, it really is a remarkably safe are. Time to shelve my paranoia. "According to NeighborhoodScout's analysis of FBI crime statistics, Fort Lee is safer than 83% of the cities and towns in the US of all population sizes. In New Jersey, only on the order of 18% of the communities have a lower crime rate than Fort Lee. If you live in Fort Lee, your chance of becoming a victim of crime in the community is 1 in 117. The US average across communities from the largest to the smallest is 1 in 31. It is for these reasons that Fort Lee is ranked as one of the top 100 safest cities in the U.S.A." http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/nj/fort-lee/crime/#description

Or here in Illinois, where they rip ground wires off utility poles and deface WW2 monuments just to get the flagpoles/copper wire to sell for scrap. smirk

Well, since the question appears to have been answered and this thread is already slipping off topic: A friend from high school married a girl from nj and they lived in Bloomfield when they first got married.

Because of home rule, taxes to pay for services, etc., nj is fairly safe overall.

I've only driven through there and gotten gas at the last station on the turnpike, but it is a totally not scary place. I would be much more afraid to leave a vehicle just about anywhere in Birmingham.
