Again,for anyone who hasn't seen it,here is a 2008 NYC crime map.The areas colored the darkest are the highest crime sections of the city.
http://nymag.com/docs/08/01/080114crimemaps.pdf
If you look closely you will see that EHarlem,Midtown South and Lower East Side are darker( by one shade) than anywhere in The South Bronx.

And I know the map is a few years old but really,nothing has changed much.The highest crime areas have been the same areas for a long time and probably will be for a long time.The highest crime areas trade places for the title and for 2nd,3rd,4th and 5th positions each year but they don't generally fall off the list, except over a very long period of time.
Thanks for the map. It has definetly helped me a lot in my research. Thanks! x

Morrisania of course we know is notorious the poorest neighborhood in New York. Soundview is a crime and project ridden neighborhood. Mott Haven also project ridden, very high HS drop out rates. Edenwald as said earlier use to be crack city but is still pretty bad. Feels weird at night you feel like your the only one there for miles. Fordham Bedford also has a similar feel pretty dangerous by the train tracks. Also on Fordham avoid Briggs by the Library. Kingsbridge Heights dangerous around Webb, Sedgwick and Davidson. Hunts Point is scary looking all around. Brownsville probably the most dangerous neighborhood in the city. East New York horrible as well there aren't many high rise projects but their are row houses. I remember in 06 the New York Times reports that ENY is getting better and may become the next Red Hook. 7 days later 12 murders occur within a week. Bed Stuy is getting better but it was hot during the summer. Don't know much about Queens. Inwood is DRUG CITY the worst streets are Nagle, Post, Vermylia, Dyckman, Sherman, 207 Street. Washington Heights is bad in the 160/170's and Audubon. Staten Island yeah Stapleton is a bad area yeah Stapleton from Wu Tang Clan lol. Its worst by the Stapleton Houses, Broad Street, Vanderbilt by the hospital. And Port Richmond has been plagued by prostitution, drugs and racism there has been a lot of tension between blacks and hispanics.
