26 Jun HOTEL DEVELOPER HIDARY LOOKING FORWARD TO NIGHTS ON THE TOWN IN NEW HOT DISTRICT
In 1993, New York City saw 1,946 homicides and 86,001 robberies, and that was a 2.5 and 5.7 respective percent drop from the year before.
Compare those crime numbers with 2012, when there were 414 total murders. Crime is down so much in fact, that on November 26, there was not a single shooting, stabbing or homicide recorded. Lower crime has helped to bring in a record 52 million visitors last year and has driven construction of new hotels, more than 70 opening between 2008 and 2012, according to a market study by HVS Global Hospitality Services and NYU Preston Robert Tisch Center.
