lol he has to be one of the funniest to come along in awhile. 100 per 10,000? NY has had less than 500 murders this year so you a professional who studies these types of things are saying that out of 500 murders in a city of 8 million people 100 of those can be attributed to an area of only 10,000 people? Your projects got more people than that in them correct? So an area smaller than one project is responsible for almost a 4th of all NYC's murders? You should go back and recheck your 15 years of police files and stats you have been traveling the country with. If that was the case NY would definately be the safest big city in maybe the world. You miss those two corners and you have the same chances of survival that you would have in a Canadian city lol.
New York has not had less than 500 murders this year. And due to the organized crime in this city, we estimate about 900-1400 murders is a more accurate conclusion.
New York's murder rates as a whole is not 100 per 100,000. If you read my post you'd realize that.
New York is not even close to being the safest city in the world. And actually, according to the most recent stats, LA will take over the Safest City in America slot in 2 years, possibly less. New York is actually experiencing a slight increase in crime.
And yes, New York is better than it was in the 70s and 80s. The neighborhoods went from being THE WORST to being ONE OF THE WORST, and actually, Hunts Point in NYC is the most dangerous urban neighborhood in America, with a murder rate of about 100 per 100,000, which I clearly stated yesterday.
You are talking about the dark figure of crime.
By your estimates you think that New York has had 1400 murders right?
Well by your logic I could start walking around telling people that my city actually had over 90 homicides this year.
Where's my proof? Well all the bodies were dumped over Niagara Falls. And the lower rapids are too dangerous for police to look for all the bodies that have been dumped...
....when in reality we've only had like 4 homicides this year
Same thing applies to New York. Im sure there have been homicides that have not been reported but it's no where near 900 let alone 1400.
Yeah really...when I went to New York I saw LOTS of cops on EVERY street at EVERY corner. So don't tell me that it's not safe when I see cops and cameras everywhere. Come on man...NYC was dangerous and now it's not except for a few small spots. And those spots are the places you only go to if you live there.
No, that's ridiculous. There are cops all over Midtown to Downtown, but once you get into the outer-boroughs and East Harlem it's completely different. Over 500 people are killedhere every year, people are MURDERED, DEAD. That is a lot and if there was a cop on every street corner we should be at around 20 or so.
DOn't get ridiculous now. I'm telling you for a fact that the top 2 most dangerous urban neighborhoods in America are in Brooklyn North, which has experienced a 64% increase in slayings over the past two years.
Red Hook, Brooklyn tried to revitalize but due to the distance it is from Manhattan and public transportation they couldn't gentrify it. So that's one of the neighborhoods that is the same as it was in the 80s and early-90s.
Here's Red Hook, Brooklyn today...
