From the NY Post:
The Rockaways are getting rocked by crime!
Felonies in the 100th Precinct in Queens, which blankets Belle Harbor, Breezy Point, Broad Channel and other western areas of the peninsula, have gone through the roof, according to the latest police statistics.
Burglaries have jumped 144 percent, from 54 last year to 132 this year. Felony assaults have soared 66 percent, from 78 to 130. Robberies have gone up 31 percent, from 63 to 83. Grand larcenies are up 26 percent over last year. The crime wave is so pervasive that a local deli is even offering pamphlets that warn customers, “Do You Feel Safe and Secure? We Hope You Do ... But Maybe You Shouldn’t!”
Meanwhile, crime in Manhattan’s 20th Precinct, which covers the Upper West Side, showed the most significant drop, plunging 12.8 percent this year, police statistics through Dec. 18 reveal.
