Orwellian or not, the cameras and police substations make all the difference. Times Square and most of Manhattan required you to transfer your wallet to your front pocket and hope for the best back in the 80s: Now it's a place you can take your kids & have fun. Just watch out for the Nekked Cowboy and Pan-handling Elmo.

Unless you have backwards Paki from Iraqi with a SUV packed with propane tanks.
