I have no interest whatsoever in learning about the various ghetto areas of NYC. I have had more than my share of them and their inhabitants. NYC can't gentrify fast enough for me.

There is no way crime is up. DeBlasio is mayor now! He got the cops to stop committing all those racist murders and everything else so everyone is perfectly safe now.

According to the news, "violent crime" is down but shootings are up. Talk about oxymorons...

Violent crimes also include assault, domestic violence, etc.

Well based on what I've been seeing, one would think assaults would be up too. There was a nasty one in the Bronx one the news in broad daylight.

It's just being reported more to suit the agenda. Not saying DeBlasio is a great mayor by any stretch of the imagination, but the reality while shootings and murders are up in the city over the last year, all other major crimes are down and we are currently experiencing a 7% reduction in overall crime, though we will have to see if that trend continues throughout the year. Right now, there's been an uptick in crime in a number of Harlem precincts over the past month and Manhattan overall has seen a significant increase in shootings over the past year especially south of 96th which may be why we are hearing about it more but as of right now, we are better off this year than last year...

I can't seem to find any news about the incident online. Does anyone know what happened?
Always check twitter, it's the google of what's happening right now.

Crime is also up in every borough except Brooklyn. Manhattan and the Bronx especially have seen an upswing in crime.
