The statistics show there has been an increase in crime in New York City since the onset of the coronavirus.

My kids suggested I subscribe to a new app called Citizen. It sends you alerts when there are 911 calls nearby.

The minute you turn it on it changes your perception of your surroundings.

Within just a few hours yesterday there was a report of shots fired, four women fighting and a man trying to set fire to the door of his apartment.

All within a few block radius.

Today I got a alert about a search for a shooting suspect, as well as a man who flew off a motorcycle, someone assaulted with a bat and a bicyclist who was “doored.”

Was this stuff always going on and I didn’t know about?
