The Post checks in with an article titled "Graffiti arrests drop 30% as complaints keep pouring in" about how NYC is in ruins and stuff because of de Blasio.
To some stats!
• Graffiti arrests are down 31 percent since 2013.
• The police have arrested 2,497 "aerosol artists" (as the Post puts it) in the city so far this year, compared with 2,772 over the same period last year, and 3,598 in all of 2013, according to NYPD data.
• To date in 2015, there have been 13,185 graffiti-related calls to 311 ... which is down 11 percent from the 14,830 complaints in the same period last year, but up 3 percent from the 12,854 complains in 2013.
So. Fewer complaints than last year... and fewer arrests.
Sunset Park received 970 graffiti complaints this year... followed by Williamsburg/Greenpoint with 877 and the East Village/Lower East Side with 678.
As the Post notes:
Graffiti is a bellwether of “broken windows” crime, experts have said.
