If you want to live in a big city, but want to feel safe. Move to these places. 

New survey released by Cheapism, has determined the safest big cities here in America. What qualifies a big city? You must have at least 200,000 residents living in that city. Sorry Wichita Falls, not making the cut on this one. Even though I don't think anyone considers this a 'big city'.
