This is not a statistic I've seen. What you might want to take a look at is It rates Newburgh a 5 on a scale of 100 with 100 being safest. It rates Beacon a 34 on the same scale. I'm not sure what crime map you saw, but it seems to be inaccurate.

Hi Rosa,
As agents we can not specify whether the neighborhoods or schools are good or bad. There is always a perception that individuals possess about certain issues and is based on past experience. The best we can do is to suggest you make some research of your own including visits to schools. houses of worship, interview police officers or community policing officers, meeting with neighbors, ocassional drivebys' in your area of interest. a visit to local library. Searching the net is also an option. Good and bad neighborhoods are always hoping and waiting for good people to improve the quality of opportunity that we owe to ourselves. ... more
