    New to the city, is this a safe area to travel to via transit and walking?

      Hi Joe. I think the Roseland Pullman area is a rough part of town. If you want to catch a ride with me I can pick you up at the Whole Foods on Clinton and Roosevelt at 1:30. I am taking another participant w me.

      That would be great, thank you! I don't know if you can send private messages on meetup, but my cell # is[masked]-4059. I can text you back so we can find each other at the market. See you @ 130. :)
