for all its problems, it's one of the few cities of its size or larger where you'll see many young women walking around late at night. really, as long as you avoid the drunks or obvious sketchy places you'll be alright.

St. John’s is a nice city to live in! Lots of things to do and see, however, drugs seem to be a very big problem here in the city. You know it’s bad when someone under the influence of drugs boards your bus screaming racial slurs, and saying profanities to everyone. As a student I am sometimes afraid to commute by myself in fear that I will come across someone violent or on drugs that may want to do harm. Robberies are also commonplace here. But all of that aside, St. John’s is starting to see a decrease in violent crime and serious crime. But don’t let that keep you from staying on your toes, you’re in a city, you have to be careful. St. John’s is a beautiful city with plenty of sights to see, you just have to be careful when you go about doing it. If you’re not looking for trouble you won’t get it.
