Original Article: Feb 10, 2021
Nineteen hometowns across the Hudson Valley are considered some of the most dangerous places to live in New York.
RoadSnacks recently released its "10 Most Dangerous Cities In New York For 2021" list. The website says they use, “data to create bite-sized snacks of shareable information about places and cities across the country.” The website is quick to add their “goal is to show you the real side of places that not everyone wants to hear.”
RoadSnacks used the FBI's recently released 2019 crime data to craft the list. Using the FBI's crimes stats the website ranked every city in New York with a population of over 5,000 based off violent crime and property crime per capita.
Below are the 10 most dangerous places in New York, according to Roadsnacks:
- Niagara Falls
- Johnson City Village
Hudson Valley residents can be proud no city made the top 10. However, Newburgh, the City of Poughkeepsie, Monticello, Kingston, Port Jervis and the Town of Poughkeepsie all were ranked in the top 40 most dangerous places to live. 19 made the top 100.
