mixed bag of results imo. Some of them were harmless but the stalking guy was pretty creepy.

Few look harmless to me, some look downright creepy. Is this normal over there btw? Looks weird, I can get if she's turning some heads, but to have that many people address her directly, what's up with that.

Where's the rest of the 10 hours?

After all, history only tastes bitter to those who expect it to be sugar coated

Yes, NYC is in my backyard so i know it pretty well. Manhattan is a very divided place:

1. If you go to the touristy, busy streets you're just going to have people occupied with themselves and no one will acknowledge you. Everyone is just on the phone or on the move to work/somewhere. If you walk around questionable hours like she did at the end, then you will definitely get some "feedback."

2. If you go to the outskirts of it like she did, you're going into riskier places that are just more vocal. I have no excuse for that guy who stalked her for 5 minutes, but the area she was in at the time isn't the best.

Bottom line is, I've witnessed it and seen it, but not to the degree this video is showing it. Like everywhere else in the world, go to the more questionable areas and you will get more questionable characters.

Wow, some of these are really creepy. Although, saying "good day" or "good evening" doesn't constitute harassment, even if they are only saying it because she's beautiful.

To me it looks fake, probably who made the video had already some agenda to begin with.

Re: 10 Hours of Walking in New York as a Woman

Looks about the right amount of reactions. 10 hours of walking - video time: 1:57.

In other news, she must have Robredo's fitness levels.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

It's rude if nothing else or do you think he's actually concerned about her morning?

In this one? If a total stranger came talking like that to me I'd be cautious if nothing else, twice more if I'm in a lonely street or not so safe neighborhood.

An elderly gentleman tipped his hat and asked me "how do you do?" just yesterday morning... How worried should I be right now?

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...
