New York City crime rank

The safest seven neighborhoods by this measure are all contiguous in Staten Island and are all fairly low density.  It’s also interesting to see that Midtown-Midtown South is ranked 1st overall.  This is likely due to the low number of residents in that area compared to the number of people, since each crime rate here is normalized by the population size of the neighborhood.
