Crime down 24% in Midtown

The 53 square-blocks patrolled by the unarmed, uniformed security team of the Grand Central Partnership experienced a 24 percent decline in reported crime for the first nine months of 1990, compared with the same period in 1989.

The figures documenting the 24 percent decline 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 24 percent decline comes on top of an 8 percent decline for the 12 months of 1989 compared to 1988," says Richard P. Dillon, former assistant chief of the NYPD, who supervises the Grand Central Partnership program. "This improvement is even greater than the percentage implies, because the Grand Central Partnership's team reports a higher proportion of crimes committed than had previously been reported by private citizens."
