Subway crime reaches record low

By · Published in 2007

Don’t feel safe on the subway? Well, then, what’s wrong with you? Subway crime has hit a new low with an average of just six reported crimes per day. Once upon a time, back in the good old days of 1990, subway crime numbers sat at 48 per day. Maybe all of the people who claimed they don’t feel safe in the subways are simply buying into the Hollywood image of the New York City subways. It’s never been safer to ride underground in New York.
