Is Prindsesse Gade, and the other gades safe neighborhoods?

By safe I mean, if I walk through them with a video camera will I get robbed?

You mean as a tourist? Or videographer filming a news report? Most all streets are named Gade and that is the meaning in English of the Danish word. There are several streets that you could photograph as well with no problem, as there could be some that you could be relieved of your camera as in any city. Best to ask advice before you venture out.

Yeah, as a tourist.

Oh, gade means street?

Okay thanks, I firgured they were safe in the time daytime, the buildings just looked rundown, but it could be because they're from colonial times. I also heard that robbery and piracy does occur in the Virgin Islands, so better safe then sorry, I think they cleaned them up a little though in the last few years to make it safer for tourists, but you never know. I'll be on my toes. I wanna see them, 'cuz the buildings are nice.

Thanks.

Maybe you can find someone to accompany you to help show you around.

There are areas even in the day time best not to venture into, or that is what the policeman told us years ago when accidentally taking a wrong turn into one.

If you want to film people, you should ask their permission. Some people may have a problem with strangers taking their picture.

I didn't say I was gonna film people, just their houses. But if it's a bad neighborhood, I won't even venture into it. The bad neighborhoods usually don't have anything that's worth seeing though.

@TinaColorado, can you give me a list?
