In midtown, crime down 36% since '88.

The 53 square blocks patrolled by the unarmed, uniformed security team of the Grand Central Partnership experienced a 36 percent decline in reported crime for the first 10 months of 1991 when compared with 1988, the year that the Grand Central Partnership's security team took to the streets.

The figures documenting the 36 percent decline and announced by the partnership were compiled from the New York City Police Department statistics computed only for the streets with the Grand Central Partnership Business Improvement District, roughly 38th Street to 48th Street and the west side of Fifth Avenue to Second Avenue. The figures for 1991 where based on the first 10 months of the year.

"Crime is in a major recession in Midtown," said Peter L. Malkin, chairman of the Grand Central Partnership. "This 36 percent decline since 1988 is remarkable. We also experienced a 14 percent decline for the first 10 months of 1991 when compared to 1990. The Partnership's highly trained, 47-person, privately-funded security team working in support of the New York City Police Department certainly has proven its worth."

The Grand Central Partnership security team maintains direct radio and telephone communications with the New York City Police Department.
