Just so you know, I don't mean to offend anyone with this, I'm just worried...
(Bad) luck had it that for the whole of next week I'll have to stay in Hoxton, and I'm really concerned about that. It's infamous for its gangs, violence and poverty and people say that having a nice phone and a Mac on you can only get you in trouble. Can you tell me how true this is? I know that there are bad kids and good kids in Hoxton, im the same way that there are bad kids and good kids in Chelsea, but I would really appreciate some advice on how to stay safe on your own in the dark, and preferably not get robbed/gang-raped/killed/insert another appropriate criminal offence...
I'm really out of my comfort zone and need some help here. (And regardless of how cynical I may appear, I really don't mean to generalise and discriminate against anyone.)

As long as you don't show your valuables off you'll be fine! It's not the nicest area but that doesn't mean you'd get killed haha
At night just be aware of your surroundings and don't go down any alleyways and maybe have your phone at the ready just incase!

Have my phone at the ready? To give it to whoever likes it without getting a black eye or to call the cops while sprinting away from danger? Lol

It's really not that bad.
Avoid alleyways and stay on main roads as much as you can. Avoid having your valuables on show all the time. Keep conscious of your surroundings but don't look like you're scared of everyone.
