Kim,

Your question is placed under the crime and safety subcatagory. If crime statistics are what you're seeking, you can can contact the NYPD directly. Every precinct has a community liason and their own crime statistics.

New York City is a wonderful place to live. Whether you live in Topeka, Kansas or the UES, it's a good idea to exercise common sense and get involved in your community.

You're within walking distance to Carl Shurtz Park, the Museum Mile, Gracie Mansion, and Central Park. It's not the trendiest neighborhood, but many persons continue to choose to live in the Upper East Side.

you want advice about crime, stay south of 96th. That's it. Its a young area and fun especially if you're into going out, getting drunk and being dumb. The locations for that are endless. If you go north, stay close, south you can go as far as you can walk.

For crime statistics for your area (the 19th precinct), go to the NYC.gov site listed below. For a demographic picture of the neighborhood, try putting your address into a site, http://www.propertyshark.com/mason/, which will give you all kind sof demographic information on the area, including ages, race, income, etc. of your neighborhood. You have to register at Property Shark, but the info is free. I have lived in this neighborhood for over 30 years and raised a daughter here. It is not as interesting as some areas, but it is safe and convenient. If you are a young professional, you will find a lot of others in your category. Good luck.

If you are in to fitness or would like to, walk toward Central Park and join the New York Road Runners Club and make a bunch of new friends. It's located at 9 E.89 Street.
