There is an organization in Brooklyn called ‘Brooklyn Bike Patrol‘ and they exist for the sole purpose of safely escorting women from subway stations to their homes in the late hours of the night. They operate from 8pm until 3:00am and sometimes as late as 4:30am.
All you have to do is call 718-744-7592.
They meet you anywhere in the neighborhood, be it a bar, restaurant, friend’s house, bus stop or subway station. It’s small organizations and groups like these whose work restores my faith in humanity 🙂

Neighborhoods they cover: Sunset Park, Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, Kensington, Prospect Heights , Carroll Garden, Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Crown Heights and Bedstuy
