Crime in the city continues to rise, with overall crime up 41.65%, robberies nearly 35%, and violent crime up 13.3% as of Feb. 6 compared to the same period last year.

Meanwhile, almost every police station in New York City has reported spikes in crime this year, including five in which crime rates have doubled, new NYPD figures show.

“No neighborhood is safe,” one Brooklyn cop told The New York Post on Tuesday, offering a grim outlook for the crime-ravaged city’s future.

“At this rate, we’ll lose the city by St. Patrick’s Day.

According to recently released statistics, 72 of the 77 districts in the five districts saw an increase in crime this year compared to the same period in 2021, and only three recorded a slight decrease in the number of criminal offenses.

Two sites, including one spanning the city’s picturesque Central Park, saw no change at all, a statistic that can be misleading due to the area’s low crime rate compared to actual populated areas.

Crime in New York is up more than 41 percent year-over-year, and traffic incidents are up 74 percent year-over-year in 2021.

“Only squirrels are safe,” another anonymous cop joked to The Post. “Tourists will never return.”

Since Mayor Eric Adams unveiled his “Plan to End Gun Violence” on January 24, at least 49 people have been shot dead in the “City that Never Sleeps” and at least 12 people have been killed.

Violent crime has skyrocketed in the city as a whole over the past year, with many different factors cited as potential causes, including heightened tensions between the police and the public, unemployment rates, politicians’ soft on crime, and reform of the bail system.

According to recently released crime figures that take into account crimes committed up to the week ending Feb. 6, robberies are up nearly 35 percent compared to the same period in 2021.

According to the data, the number of rapes also increased by more than 35 percent, and overall crime in the Big Apple rose sharply by 41.65 percent.

Murders, meanwhile, are down 13 percent from last year, while shootings are up an astounding 30 percent.

New NYPD CompStat data shows five precincts have seen total crime double since the start of the year in the Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn boroughs.

West Harlem’s 26th Precinct recorded a 122 percent increase in overall crime, primarily driven by an increase in burglary, grand larceny, and assault.

In Manhattan County, the number of burglaries soared to 30 this year, compared to seven burglaries in the same period in 2021—an increase of more than 400 percent—while grand burglaries and felony assaults increased nearly doubled from 15 to 29 and from eight to 15, respectively. .
