You might want to skip a block of Frederick Douglass Boulevard between 155th Street and Harlem River Drive in Washington Heights — 18 robberies occurred there in 2015. But it isn’t the worst block in the city.

The 2015 NYPD crime data was analyzed and mapped for the New York Post by Onboard Informatics, a Manhattan firm that crunches data for real estate companies. It found that for home burglaries, West 34th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues led the city in both burglaries (44) and grand larcenies (244) in 2015.

Lexington Avenue between East 123rd and East 124th streets, in East Harlem, saw 19 assaults committed. And the homicide capitals of the city were in or around three city housing projects — the Ingersoll Houses in Fort Greene; the Langston Hughes Houses in Brownsville; and the Rochdale Village Houses in Queens. Each of those public housing developments had three murders in 2015. [NYP] –Christopher Cameron[NYP]Christopher Cameron
