In 3 years a lot of these 14-year-old shooters will be 17-year-old shooters.

They need to invest in more community spaces in East Harlem. The neighborhood cannot be policed more than it already is, yet it’s still bad.

Also, East River Houses on E 102 - 105 is arguably worse than even most areas north of 116. They’ve raided those projects at least twice and it’s still a hotbed for gangs (one of the three homicides this year happened there).

A major factor in "markedly decreased homicide" statistics (compared with 1970s-80s) are medical advances in managing critical gunshot and stab wounds in the past 40-50 years. It is very hard nowadays to bleed to death. There are rapid transfusion devices that can replace total blood loss in a few minutes, there are ways to re-start the heart after cardiac arrest due to massive blood loss, there are improved ways to rapidly diagnose and control major life-threatening trauma. It is much harder to die from a gunshot wound nowadays than in 1977. That is possibly a bigger reason for decreased murder rates in NYC than anything any mayor has done or not done. It covers up the fact that violent crime is still a massive problem in the city.


I am subscribed to police blogs for central Boston, Haight Ashbury area of San Francisco, and the central Bronx. The last one is always incomparably worse than the other two. The other two seem to be on a different planet from the Bronx. What I get weekly in my e-mail definitely does not support the picture of NYC being among safer cities in the US or the world. Practically every city seems to be claiming some imaginary great safety... sort of like those famous claims that criminals are all good kids who just made some wrong choices... our city is tremendously safe; all the muggings, stabbings and gunshot wounds are not crime, but only wrong choices.

The very best place for you to go for Hispanic food in the Lower is Casa Adela On Avenue C and 5th street. It’s Puerto Rican place and very very good

Thanx, I will keep that in mind and perhaps mention it to the others. But it is likely that the restaurant choice was already made because, as a group of near 2 dozen, a restaurant needs pre-warning. We usually get a limited menu at a considerably discounted price.
But maybe Casa Adela was their choice? If not, I will keep it in mind for dining with a friend if we have theater in the area.


Last outing (to FIT museum) we ate at Milane's 168W. 25th. Place was a dump but the food was DELIICIOUS.

Itís the projects that ruin the quality of the hood. They pack lots of people for such a small area.
population density is not an excuse, reason or justification for crime. the inhabitants are.

Opinion: Thankyou.
All that is required is a little effort to dig up stats.
Our current Mayor has trouble holding the status quo when in comparison to the the last two greatest mayors
ever perched on our city. Mayor Giuliani and Bloomberg have reduced crime by the thousands on a yearly basis
all while supporting and increasing population. Mayor DiBlasio has trouble dropping it 2-300 per year all while
losing a large segment of population per year, No frisk laws enacted and a purported slowdown by our men and
ladies in blue. Talk about hiding behind false numbers.......................

The only reason to subscribe to crime blogs is when is looking to BUY new real estate to get a feel for a perspective area. Thereafter, there is no reason to do so. It can make people fearful and paranoid and that is not a good way of living. Let one's own experience guide one. (Unless one doesn't have any modicom of street smarts at all. Most native New Yorkers have that.)
