New York Post: Surge in Slayings…: Meanwhile, the 84th Precinct, which covers well-to-do Brooklyn Heights and Boerum Hill and is part of Brooklyn North, had no homicides the last two years – but street crime is going through the roof.
Robbery is up 21 percent, assault climbed 12 percent and grand larceny inched up 4 percent so far this year.
Browne noted that "the 84th Precinct remains among the top third safest precincts in the safest big city in the nation."
