Crime down 20% in Midtown

The 53 square blocks patrolled by the unarmed, uniformed security team of the Grand Central Partnership experienced a 20 percent decline in reported crime for the year 1990, compared with the same period in 1989.

The figures documenting the 20 percent decline and announced by the Partnership were compiled from the New York City Police Department statistics and were computed only for the streets within the Grand Central Partnership Business Improvement District, roughly 38th Street to 48th Street, and the west side of Fifth Avenue to Second Avenue.

"This 20 percent decline comes on top of a 10 percent decline for 1989 compared to 1988, making an overall decline of 27 percent since 1988, when the Partnership's highly trained, 47-person privately-funded security team took to midtown streets," said Richard P. Dillon, former assistant chief of the NYPD, who supervises the Grand Central Partnership program.
