NYC is very safe.
I am always out all hours and never had an issue. There are some places I don't go, like the North West corner of Washington Square Park because that is where the drug dealers are, they don't bother you but just hate seeing them there. Go where the real natives and long time transplants go, stay out of parks at night.

Oh, I carry pepper spray, better safe than sorry.
