So, after adding tips about pickpockets to my Paris and Madrid pages, I'm now adding one about my home city!

While browsing the racks at Marshalls in the Downtown Crossing area recently, I felt a hand along my hip. I turned to find a hand right inside my bag! I yelled "HEY!" really loudly and the thief sauntered away.

In hindsight I suppose it was stupid of me to go to that part of town with my hobo bag. I would never do that while overseas. And, afterall, isn't our economy just as crappy - if not worse - than ones in other countries?
