Crime Report (Week of October 12)
We're starting what we hope will be a weekly feature: presenting summaries of the previous week's crime data from the two police precincts—67 and 70—that patrol our neighborhood.
The news is bad (a total of 3 murders and 14 robberies between the two precincts, among other things), and it's made worse by knowing that last week there were more crimes committed in our precincts than in neighboring precincts (63, 69, 71, 73 and 77).
The data comes from Everyblock.com. Follow the links to see more detailed information.
