Here's Chicago's homicide tracker. There are some WHACKED out areas on the west and south side - normally quite a bit less populated than most of the city. The densest and most residential areas tend to be on the north side of the city. Hence most people in the city live in the more safer areas. So far this year, 38% of the murders have been concentrated in only 4 police districts in the city. 33% of the city's police districts have only had between 0 and 2 murders. That's a pretty sick difference! I believe last year it was roughly 75% of the city live in neighborhoods with 25% of the murders, and 25% of the population dealt with 75% of the murders.

Just to note - ward 19 on the south side should be in the 0-5 homicides and not 16-20 as is listed. It's the Beverly area that's pretty nice, so I'm sure anyone with knowledge of the city would have wondered about that right away.

Cool Map, I wish NYC had a map like this, I bet they'd never make one since the city is so "safe" now.

The Red Neighborhoods (20+ Murders) Would Be:
Brownsville, Brooklyn
East New York, Brooklyn
Jamaica, Queens (including Southside Jamaica)
Harlem, Manhattan
The South Bronx, The Bronx

The Orange Neighborhoods (16-20 Murders) Would Be:
East Flatbush, Brooklyn
Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn
Far Rockaway, Queens?
Lower East Side, Manhattan?

If there was a black for 30+ Murders:
Brownsville, Brooklyn
Jamaica, Queens (including Southside Jamaica)
Harlem, Manhattan
The South Bronx, The Bronx

I know LES is Manhattan and Far Rock is Queens, I was just confused whether they'd fall into either orange or yellow.

Either way, I bet NWK is not in the top 5.
New Orleans not busting any seams with just a 311, 850 population count.

But true, Newark USED to be the murder capital like 10 years ago.
It's not even in the top 5 anymore.

For the stats I just looked at the completed numbers through August from the Police Department website.

https://portal.chicagopolice.org/por...e%20Statistics


With all the talk of Chicago's violent neigborhoods hitting the national media, the city has still come a long way in the past 10 years:

1991:

Total Crimes: 323,909
Property: 233,387
Violent: 90,522

1999:

Total Crimes: 233,790
Property: 173,266
Violent: 50,524

2008:

Total Crimes: 167,427
Property: 131,663
Violent: 35,764

Total Crimes: -48%
Property: -44%
Violent: -61%


I can't imagine being in this city in the early to late 1990's. Even this year we're trending down over 12% on homicides and 10% overall compared to the 2008 numbers.

Exactly ppl on here sound dumb claiming their city to be murder capitol and not even knowing what they're saying..just bc a city has the most murders dsnt mean its a murder capital..if you have millions of ppl then you would have hundreds of murders....its by per capita of 100k....D.C would've had 6,410 homicides in 1991 if it were the size of new york at 8 mil ppl.....same as N.O
