Crotona Park East and Morrisania Have City's Highest Rate of Jailed Residents, Data2Go.NYC Shows (Helmsley Charitable Trust)
Residents of two Bronx neighborhoods — Crotona Park East and Morrisania — are more likely to be spending the night behind bars than people who live in any other part of the city.
The South Bronx neighborhoods have the highest rate of incarcerated residents, according to an analysis of jailed New Yorkers’ last known addresses by DATA2GO.NYC, a new free mapping and data site.
On average, 371 of every 100,000 of the neighborhoods’ adult residents were locked up in a city jail on any given day during 2014, a higher rate than in any other area, the data show. . .
