New York City was damn-near Utopian earlier this week when not one report of a shooting, stabbing, or slashing was recorded in any of the five boroughs for just over 36 hours.
From 10:25 PM on Sunday until 11:20 AM on Tuesday when a 27-year-old was shot in Brooklyn, NYC was completely free of the most serious violent crimes.
None of the other officials reached for comment by the Daily News could remember either.
Though crime as a whole is up 3% for the year, the rise is attributed to a 9% increase in grand larcenies. Murders are down 23%, and shootings are down 10%.
