Done. I did all of them except Staten Island.

Alright. I'll send you the link for SI (I did all the neighborhoods, but you can put them into the correct format)

Putting out out there for anyone:
* Does all of SE Queens really warrant the yellow coloring? I was thinking of just putting everything leaving everything east of Springfield Blvd blank.

* I've heard the Paedergat section of Canarsie was nice, and should be clear.

* A lot of western Astoria is kind of run-down and industrial-feeling. Should it be yellow?

Thoughts?

Yeah I was confused why Cambria Heights & Rosedale were yellow, although I never traveled those areas on foot I know the crimes rates there are pretty low. What about East Elmhurst? I noticed it's blank, but it should be at least yellow or orange.

Alright. I'll change those areas to blank. As for East Elmhurst, I assume you have some sort of experience in the area to back it up, so I'll change it.

You should make some maps for the suburbs.

One for the Jersey suburbs, one for Long Island and one for Westchester/SW Connecticut.

I'll think about it. The thing is that I don't really have a lot of experience in the suburbs, but seeing how a lot of people react on the LI forum (I mean, you're a reasonable person, but we both know there are a ton of people who will name any minority neighborhood as a ghetto), if I end up listening to them, the whole map will get messed up.

Oh yeah, didn't factor that in. Let's scrap that idea, lol!

But it would be nice to see which blocks of the urban areas of New Jersey are safe and which aren't. Since they basically are a continuation of NYC (population density speaking).

Queens Safety Map updated to show 243rd Street Corridor, Merrick Boulevard Corridor and Linden Boulevard Corridor as yellow.

True. I mean, the thing is that it could take a while because if you think about it, Newark alone is enough for its own map, and then you have Jersey City, Paterson, Passaic, etc.

I guess I'll float the idea on the NJ forum and see if it catches on. We'd probably break it down by county (Hudson, Essex, Passaic, etc)

If you decide to do Newark and need help, let me know.
