Hate Crimes in NYC Are Up 76% This Year

Hate crimes in New York City have increased 76% so far this year compared to the same period last year, according to data from the New York Police Department Hate Crimes Task Force (HCTF) released this week.

There were 194 hate crimes between January 1 and April 10 of this year, in comparison to the 110 hate crimes from the same dates in 2021, the report shows.
The data was released as the city continues to experience a wave in violent crime incidents into 2022, as Mayor Eric Adams rolled out his plan to combat violence and crime in the city. The plan also addresses homelessness, particularly within the subway system, involving the expansion of response teams of health, police and community officials across the city.
