While I love living in New York, there are some dangerous and violent areas across the state. Although, I can't single New York out. The whole country seems to be dangerous, in one way or another. Only In Your State took a look at statistics provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to create the list. According to the state's Division of Criminal Justice Services,

New York State and the FBI use seven Index crime categories as indicators of overall crime trends: murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault, which are classified as violent crimes; and the property crimes of burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft. The FBI created these categories to allow for uniform crime reporting across all 50 states.

Many people automatically think New York City is the most dangerous and violent in the state. But, it didn't even make the list. Before we get to the one city in New York that topped the list of the most dangerous for 2022, let's take a look at the other cities in the top 5.
