New York America's 256th Most Dangerous City
The Empire State claims the safest city of size on the list: Colonie, a suburb of Albany. Amherst, Ramapo, Clarkstown, and Greece are also among the 20 safest on CQ's list...
St. Louis, Missouri and Oakland, California place and show for dangertowns. St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay calls CQ's listing "stupid." WFMJ reports that Youngstown, Ohio, 15th most dangerous last year, did not have a ranking this year as it has lost sufficient population (presumably by murder) that it failed to meet the size qualification.
Reading, Pennsylvania is #37 with a bullet, so to speak, having risen from #63 since last year. Miami Gardens, Florida, dropped in danger from #13 in 2008 to #35.
