Is this a safe neighborhood PT2?

So we can all remember my original post a few weeks back. It was more of a rant than a post full of statistics. Well that was because the statistics were not out as of then. They came out today.

As of this writing, I am pleased to announce that we have the lowest homicide rate in the city ever. It seems odd that in this age of violence, we have had fewer homicides than in 1963, but the numbers don't lie. I guess there is something to be said for gentrification!
