If he is a native New Yorker, he should have known better. If he was just visiting, somebody should have clued him in.
    Central Park is very large. Lots of people safely jog there in the daytime.

    I lived in NYC for a few years, spent a lot of time in Central Park--in the daytime, feeling safe surrounded by lots of people. After dark, the park takes on a whole different vibe. You can see the predators hanging out at the 59th Street entrance looking for the unwary.

    We were in Central Park last year during a visit to NY and fouund it very safe during the day, but I wouldn't want to venture in at night. It's a beautiful park but we have heard horror stories.

    On a side note, (shameless plug here) where I live (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) has the longest stretch of urban parkland in the world. Our river valley parkland is well over twice the size of NY Central Park. Wonderful place! I'd still be reluctant to job at night there with my iPad.

    I would have no problem jogging with my iPad if it was my only source of tunes. I hate jogging without music and I would prefer to use my iPod or iPhone, but in a pinch I could see carrying my iPad.

    You are at risk of being robbed in many places unfortunately. Be prepared to defend yourself or simply give up. Those are your only real options.

    I agree...sad response.
