1970′s Pamphlet Scared Tourists

In the mid 1970′s, the Council for Public Safety published a pamphlet called “Welcome to Fear City: A Survival Guide for Visitors to the City of New York. The manual, which had a skull on it’s cover, would deter the most experienced travelers. Some of the tips that the manual offers are:

1. Stay off the streets after 6 p.m.,

2. Do not walk and if you must leave your hotel…summon a taxi by telephone

3. Avoid public transportation – “You should never ride the subway for any reason whatsoever.”

4. Remain in Manhattan – “If you remain in midtown areas and restrict your travel to daylight hours, emergency service personnel are best able to provide protection.”

5. Protect your property

6. Safeguard your handbag

7. Conceal property in automobiles

8. Do not leave valuables in your hotel room, and do not deposit them in hotel vault.

9. Be aware of fire hazard

The piece never actually was distributed because the piece received such negative reactions and press.
