Mapping out the numbers
DNAinfo.com has released an interactive Crime & Safety Report ranking the safety of every neighborhood in the five boroughs. This unprecedented analysis of data from the NYPD and U.S. Census Bureau reveals startling results, including an increase in murder, rape, and robbery rates for the first time in decades.
Queens for example, thought to be one of the safer boroughs in NYC, boasts the highest number of auto thefts for all of New York City. Murders in Queens increased 22% from 2009 to 2010.
