Which Brooklyn Neighborhoods Send the Most Residents to Jail?

Data, everybody! It can set you free! It can empower! It can also confirm systemic issues you already knew to be true, and be depressing as hell. Today’s news falls mostly into the latter category. Using city data, Gothamist created a map of which New York neighborhoods produce the most arrests—as in, residents who end up in prison, not necessarily arrests taking place in a given neighborhood—and the results are, unfortunately, pretty concentrated.

The news isn’t all bad—since 2007, 109,491 New Yorkers spent a night or more in jail, a number that’s since dropped down to 80,738. Still, certain neighborhoods are represented in the prison system in a wildly disproportionate fashion, a problem well worth considering. In spite of its public urination problem, Williamsburg was not one of them.
