Tourists spend money when they feel safe

Reader comment on item: Does Europe Have No-go Zones?
in response to reader comment: 2007 "Why Aren't U.S. Cities Burning?" by Michael B. Katz

As a tourist I always search out the safe areas which are heavily patrolled by police. I avoid ghettos, public housing projects, drug dealing corners and after dark I avoid areas where large groups of young drunk fighting lads and their girls congregate. Once crime hits a tourist area I financially boycott that city.
