Kimbers Posted January 19, 2022 Report Share Posted January 19, 2022 My Son is going to New York in Feb to see his Boyfriend and I could do with a little help, especially from those of you in NY or close to it. Aaron is Autistic, he is not Street Smart at all, infact the opposite, he's very protected. Due to his Autism and lack of Smarts he absolutely doesn't see any bad in any situation, is not aware of his surroundings and will not listen to anything myself or my father say about being careful, trusting people etc. He is adamant, he is going and refuses to stay in a "Known" Hotel Brand as there aren't any anywhere near where his Boyfriend lives. His Boyfriend is in the Bronx and its a poorer part as well, Unionport close to Soundview. On the maps I have looked at with Red being Dangerous and Grey the best, the Area his BF is in is highlighted in Orange meaning Do not walk alone or go into at Night according to Google. My question is this. Aaron is absolutely adamant he is going. he's 24 but has the Street Smarts of a Child. His Autism means he is in a world of his own a lot so not aware of whats going on around him most of the time. he doesn't have the money to take a Cab everywhere so plans on using Buses and walking. He thinks it will be like Rural Norwich. Writing this I know how ridiculous it sounds he is going, but try and stop him! We can't and neither can his Grandad and at 24 years old he knows his own mind. So please help me out. Give me some background Info I can give him and some reasoning to ensure he is safer. And if anyone can help by meeting him at the airport or after he gets there that would be awesome! p.s. he won't ask for assistance at the airport or after as he feels he shouldn't get any special help due to his Autism. He says he has to stand on his own 2 feet like everyone else. Quote Possibly save your life. Check out this website.http://everyman-campaign.org/ Distributor for 'Every Male' grooming products.
