Major Crime Up 37 Percent In NYC In 2022

New York City is experiencing a big increase in crime this year, with major crimes up 37 percent.

That’s driven by big increases in grand larcenies, burglaries and robberies. Rapes and felony assaults have also seen double digit increases.

Murders and shootings are both down for the year. However, murders were up 35 percent in July compared to the same month in 2021.
