|NYC crime map.|
Just check out the NYPD's interactive crime map for your area.
As of today, the map is listing crimes since September, 2014.
Above is the map for the Brooklyn Heights / Downtown / Fort Greene/ Cobble Hill area. On the actual map, you can click on the blue dots and get a listing of the number and types of crimes. (We notice there's a lot of grand larceny going on.)
The maps list seven major types of felonies: Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter, Rape, Robbery, Felonious Assault, Burglary, Grand Larceny and Grand Larceny Motor Vehicle.
Hint: Avoid parks that give you the willies, even if they look clean on the map. NYPD says: " Crimes occurring in parks, beaches or open areas often cannot be mapped; some may be mapped if there is enough information on the report to determine a close cross street."
At the least, the map helps provide a handy guide to where to avoid walking at night.
