First Anon's "there are more robberies in the subway. Other people have been saying it too" and now a "bad vibe in the air" predicting higher crime with almost a sense of glee and morbid fascination of what NY might become if crime rises?

There is a sort of morbid fascination with increasing crime for some of these posters, some people just feel most comfortable around negativity or maybe they feel justified because they see all things half-full.

It makes for interesting conversation though...if we all simply agreed it would be boring.

I honestly don't believe we are going back to the Crack days of the 80s and 90s, cuz i mean come on what drug can out sell crack on the streets?? I do believe that this year is going to have more crime then last year. Somthing that surprise me is that east harlem i believe was lead in the cities murders at the start off this year. Anyone heard of any crazyness happining over there lately?

grigou... don't include me with the posters on here that enjoy fear mongering and talking about crime reverting back to the crack era... cause I never said that... An opinion is an opinion... From what I see and from what most on here discuss, there has been an uptick in subway crime... Check the statistics for yourself before you choose to make ignorant statements and try to throw someone who you can observe for yourself doesn't exaggerate...

agree with sobroguy... 100% agreement would be boring...

Crack introduced cocaine for the poor people, it was 2 bucks a vial. East Harlem has always been a dump, and still is. Some new developments though, but the drug activity is on the rise. Also attacks on people that has nothing to do with illegal biz. And these people for sure havent been hangin "outside the bodega at 3 A.M".

You'll forgive me but if your alleged "statistics" are comprised of your own alarmist perception and "other people have been saying it too" I will remain sceptic.

Default 2011 Manhattan crime and pop data

Any feedback regarding these figures below (from my website Daily Manhattan NYC Activity News) and if they mean anything (besides that one crime for every 35,000 people per day in Manhattan b/w 14th and 86th St. seems low):

1,585,873 residents in Manhattan (2010 Census)
225,000 people commuting through Port Authority each day
300,000 people commuting through Penn Station per day
164,000 people commuting through Grand Central per day
133,000 visitors to NYC per day
Based on these figures, total population in Manhattan per day is approximately 2.4 million
Manhattan is about 23 square miles
2.4 million people is approximately 105,000 people per square mile
The only cities in the world that may have a higher or nearly equal population density per square mile is Manila, Philippines, with 111,576 people per square mile, and Bogor, Indonesia, with 104,037 people per square mile. The density figures for these cities may not include commuters.

So far in 2011 there have been about 70 reported crimes per day b/w 14th and 86th St. (high commuter/visitor areas)

2.4 million people in Manhattan per day divided by 70 crimes per day means there is one crime a day per 35,000 people
