The Interactive Murder Map of NYC


02.12.13 Andy Cush

The New York World created this interactive map of New York City, which compares the 2012 homicide rate of each police precinct to that of a similar international country. Astoria/Long Island City, with its 2.96 homicides per 100,000 people, is like Libya; East Harlem, with its 25 homicides per 100,000 people, is like Brazil. My neighborhood is like New Zealand, with its 1.5 homicides per 100,000 people. What’s yours?
