I lived in a block and half away from this train station for the nearly three decades. In the last couple of years crime has increased dramatically in this area. I am not sure if it is because of the homeless shelter other factors however this train station was probably one of the most quiet and empty stations in nyc or queens. Now it seems this one has as much crime as the Union Tpke stop. Shame. This Mayor has set NYC back to Dinkin’s era crime and quality of life while increasing the cost of living exponentially. Who voted for this clown? This is a city not a circus.

How can the Mayor and the Police Commissioner say every year that crime is down when every day in the paper and on line there are articles about people who are victims – whether of robbery, rape, assault or worse, senseless murders? The trains aren’t any safer either. Every day on my train – no matter what time of day or day it is, there are people who harrass riders (first they’re calm and tell their “story” and how they need money and then they get verbally abusive and threaten people). Mayor Butthead and Police Commissioner O’Neill have got to wake up and see what people are dealing with in their reality, not statistical fantasy.

Ugh

So crime statistics are trumped by the fact that you “read a lot of articles”? Definitely makes sense. Let the mayor know of your surefire way of tracking crime, he will be sure to implement it.

Considering the relative proximity of the new homeless shelter to where these crimes have been taking place, I believe there may be a connection. The question is should we be sacrificing the lives and well-being of tax-paying citizens for a bad sneaky deal perpetrated on the citizens of these communities. Money would be better spent by building supportive housing by the airport where there is plenty of land available.
