New York news site DNAinfo has mapped data from the New York Police Department and the U.S. Census Bureau, Murray Weiss, columnist for DNAinfo, looks at the picture it paints of NYC neighborhoods.
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?
