Default Latest Crime Stats NYC

Does anyone have the most recent crime stats for NYC? Let's see how the city is doing, since so many people have made dire predictions about rampant crime and chaos overtaking the city due to lower economic performance and all those "loser/thug/broke" cops on the force. Please post what you have..thanks.

Similar to last year. The murder rate has slowed down considerably however.

Southern Queens is way up in homicides (especially Corona).

Morrisania is way up.

East Tremont is way up.

Soundview is up.

Fordham-Bedford is way down.



East NY is way down.

Bed Stuy is down.

Central Harlem is way up.

East Harlem is down.


Lower Washington Heights is down.


I usually post my analyses at the end of the year. But those are some noteworthy notes.

Is Central Harlem really "way up"? I know there were a couple well-publicized shootings but I didn't think it was that different from last year overall.

The 32nd precinct in upper central Harlem has reported 10 homicides this year as compared to 4 at this point last year. This makes it a 150% increase.

The 28th precinct in lower central Harlem has reported 4 homicides this year. This is compared to 1 at this point last year. It represents a 300% chance increase.

So Central Harlem has 14 homicides this year as compared to 5 last year. I'd say that is being way up. But Central Harlem has always been rough, in recent years people think gentrification changed the area but a couple of years back it was the murder capital of the city. No surprise. The hood if there ever was one. And it still is.

Wow where have you been. I was wondering if you had left the site or something. Figures a crime thread would bring you back.

I'm curious to see the Fordham, Fordham-Bedford stats. It seems like the flooding of cops around there has helped a lot.

Can you summarize Jrock? It would be your good deed of the day..and would be helpful to the forum...2007 vs 2008. In Mott Haven (40th Precinct) crime is down even from the 40 year record low crime rate of 2007...looks like we will see possibly 2007's record low crime rate broken by 2008!...but it is still early. Just to put it in perspective about how things have changed: 1990 Murders were 72, 2007 were 11 (at this time) and 2008 is 9 (at this time)...and the overall decrease in crime this year vs this time last year is about 4%...it continues to drop despite the accussations of "dumb" cops, the fear mongering of recession, and all the other problems that were "guaranteed" to bring the city back to the chaos of the early 90s. It isn't happening, the city has turned a corner..and the change is real.
