For the first time in a long time, New York City went for more than a day and a half without a single shooting, stabbing, or slashing.

From 10:25pm on Sunday all the way to 11:20am on Tuesday when a 27-year-old was shot in Brooklyn- NYC was entirely violent crime free.

NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne was quoted saying that he couldn’t remember the last time such an event occurred, and that it was a “Nice way to start the week.”

Truth be told, crime in NYC is up 3% this year, but mainly due to the 9% increase in grand larcenies. Shootings are down 10% while murders are down 23%.

If things continue going the way they are for the next month then we are set to end the year with “the fewest number of murders since about 1960,” according to Tom Reppetto, a NYPD historian.
