New York’s
50 Safest Cities

2019

If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere! But before you go to New York, whether it’s for work, for fun, or if you’re moving there, you should know about its safest cities. Aside from the illustrious New York City, famous for its Broadway shows, massive skyscrapers, and steep prices, we also scoured the entire state of New York for safe havens, including Westchester and Upstate. From the mountains to the valleys to the hot dog stands, we figured out the safest cities in New York using crime rates from the FBI.

If you’re in New York, what are some of the top must-sees? Well, to name a few…

  • Empire State Building: At 103 stories, this art deco style office tower gives you panoramic views of all of New York City and beyond.
  • Broadway show: From loud musicals to dramas starring A-list celebrities, you can’t miss a Broadway show if you make it to Manhattan.
  • Central Park: Located in the middle of the Upper West Side and the Upper East Side, Central Park is a great place for walks, picnics, boating, and sports with a zoo, carousel, and reservoir.

Our top pick was Lewisboro Town, New York, a city with a population just under 13,000 with absolutely no violent crimes. Not shockingly, New York, New York did not make the list, but we still love it anyway. Some more of our personal favorites include Mamaroneck Town, Rye, and Tarrytown Village. But if you want the full Great Gatsby experience, be sure to check out Port Washington. Not only does it have a high median income of $120,233, but it’s also the location of the fictional millionaire and titular character’s mansion!

3.567

This statistic shows the number of violent crimes per 1,000 people in the past year. Violent crimes include forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, as defined by the FBI. 

0.676
This statistic shows how many motor vehicles were stolen per 1,000 of the city’s inhabitants. Across the United States, the rate was 238.8 per every 100,000 inhabitants, according to the FBI.
15.142

Finally, this number shows how many property crimes were committed in the past year per every 1,000 of the city’s residents. Property crimes include burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson and larceny-theft.

Let Everyone Know Your City Made the List!

How Did We Determine the Safest Cities?

Of course, this isn’t just the safest cities according to personal opinion. Rather, we used the FBI’s 2017 and 2016 Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) data to choose our top picks, based on factors like:

  • Murder rate
  • Rape rate
  • Robbery Rate
  • Assault rate
  • Burglary rate
  • Theft rate
  • Vehicle theft rate
  • Arson rates
  • Median Income

For each city, we’ll provide the most important information that you need to know, such as the city’s population, violent and property crime rates and trends, median income, average household income, and an overall safety score and ranking. Plus, we’ll show you all the specific numbers for the above rates, in addition to larceny theft rates and the total number of civilians working in law offices.
