Chelsea showed the largest increase in syphilis last year of any neighborhood in the city, followed by Greenwich Village, Union Square, and Washington Heights. Overall syphilis rates in the city were up 60% last year, after declining the year before. Close to 100% of infections were in men, and 86% of those were in men who have sex with men. Make note.
