If You're a New Yorker You May Have Been Stalked by Dexter Morgan

In a recent interview with Vulture Michael C. Hall  fesses up:
When you landed the role of Dexter, didn't you actually practice stalking people in the city?
[Laughs.] I pretended to stalk people. I wasn't actively stalking people, but I did follow them. If there was somebody alone, I'd follow them around, just to see what it felt like — no syringe, though. Maybe go down on the subway and stay a car away. Try not to get noticed, just to see what it felt like.

Did you ever get caught?
No. I never got caught. I know! [Laughs.] The key was distance: Don't get too close, and if you feel like you might be spotted, relocate, cross the street. It was pretty easy, especially if it's the busy part of the day. I learned if you're out and about, you're probably being followed by someone — so don't go down those deserted alleyways! It was kind of creepy. I creeped myself out.
 Italics mine. As a single woman that was by far the most comforting tidbit I've read all day. Can I get an "Amen!"  from the other sitting ducks ladies out there?
