Murder Down in New York This Year, Up on the LES

Must Read

Yesterday the NYPD released end-of-year statistics showing crime was up slightly overall in New York City in 2011 (0.2% through December 18).  There have been 490 homicides, down 5.6% from 2010.

WNYC noted that the crime picture varies greatly precinct by precinct. For example, in  the 7th Precinct (which covers the Lower East Side below Houston Street and east of Allen) murders jumped from one in 2010 to five this year.  On the other hand, there was only one homicide in the 9th Precinct (East Village) this year, as opposed to four in 2010.

What about other crime categories? In the 7th this year, there have been 14 rapes (there were 10 in 2010), 124 robberies (128 in 2010), 112 felony assaults (122 in 2010), 78 burglaries (96 in 2010) and 298 grand larcenies (271 in 2010).

In the 5th Precinct, there have been no murders this year, 11 rapes (one more than 2010), 119 robberies (98 in 2010), 106 felony assaults (129 in 2010), 114 burglaries (121 in 2010) and 509 grand larcenies (559 in 2010).

All of the stats are available on the NYPD’s web site.
