Some Recent Obligatory Studies

In the Lower East Side at a area referred to (recently?) as Hell Square, which consists of a plethora of bars and a boisterous clientele roaming the town’s streets till the sun goes up, a study arranged by the LES dwellers group and Hunter College results shows that various crimes has gone up, particularly felony assaults and rape with the proliferation and over-saturation of said drinking establishments and shows that the city’s decision rubber stamp liquor licenses to rely on nightlife debauchery and decadence to stimulate the economy and more importantly, real estate values, has had detrimental effects on the community.

Beyond the LES, noise complaints have grown immensely about the entire city’s bars and restaurants, or more apt-barstaurants. A study published by the state comptroller shows reported complaints in the past 5 years went up from 38,000 to 93,000. General noise complaints; some examples from house parties, construction from hyper development or big rig trucks on local streets, went up 50 %. Enforcement has been practically nil.

Subway sex crimes are up 52% over the past 3 years with reportedly hardly any arrests resulting from deviant perverted behavior.
