Crime: Crime has stayed pretty static over the last few years, but like most of the city, it's been on the decline for a decade. So far this year there have been two murders, up from one this time last year; five rapes, up from three; 67 robberies, down from 70; 44 felony assaults, down from 50; and 84 burglaries, down from 93.
