Murray! Wish you'd mentioned that it was a paid page - can't see the info without subscribing. :(

it would be nice if the link wasn't a paid page, it's a bit useless.

I think there may be a reporting disparity issue. Say two crimes are committed in each area. In one area, it may be called in and not resolved; in the other area it is not called in out of hopelessness. Thus, the area it is called in has a higher crime rate.

Do you have to have a subscription to DNAinfo to see the map? I can't seem to see the data for my neighborhood.

Has there been a decrease of stop-and-frisk, and if so, is it related to the recent increased shootings?
