The FBI this week released its annual crime statistics ranking the safest big cities in America. Once again, Gotham defied the stereotypes by ranking as the 17th safest among cities with over 100,000 inhabitants. This is great news for every parent who's worried about their children either visiting, moving to, or living here, but I have to wonder what is happening to our fair city? Remember the good 'ol days when New Yorkers had to wear flak jackets to survive a trip to the corner bodega? Before I moved here, I heard it wasn't even safe to look someone in the eye on the streets of New York. I mean really, what's New York without crime? Port St. Lucie, that's what!

New York City is changing so much, next thing you know you won't be able to smoke in bars, take photos on the subway or re-sell used underwear.
