I have never felt unsafe in the downtown San Antonio area - and I've never felt unsafe at a con where Sven and his crew were running security. Like others have said, it's a brightly lit area and since it's near the riverwalk the police take security very seriously. The riverwalk is SA's tourist area and the cops don't want anything bad to happen to tourists, since tourism is a major industry in SA.
Thanks Farasha! i look forward to seeing you all at the show!
