Brooklyn’s crime statistics for the first quarter are looking none too good. Three months into the new decade felonies are way up, the Daily News reports, with almost 70 percent of Brooklyn police precincts seeing an increases in robberies, burglaries, grand larceny or auto theft of twenty percent or more. Last week Mayor Bloomberg blamed rising city crime rates on budget cuts. Some of the steepest increases were observed in Sunset Park/Windsor Terrace where burglaries were up 120 percent from 25 to 55 and around Brooklyn Heights and Boerum Hill, where they climbed 104 percent. Rapes and homicides were a growing concern in some neighborhoods, including Clinton Hill.

Keep in mind opinions are subjective--why not visit the area more than once and different times of day--look at everything that is of importance to you--during your travels do stop by the local police department--they are your best source of accurate information--then make a determination--will your comfort level be reached.

Unfortunately brokers by law are not allowed to answer these type of questions. Best way for you to get crime stats for that area is to go, call or check the local listing online and review their reports.

We also suggest that walk the area or drive around at different parts of the day to get themselves familiarized.

If I'm nto mistaking it's the 77th precinct. Please feel free to call or email me if have any specific building questions.
