I decided to research crime on New Years Eve just to see how CNY compares to the rest of the world on such a big night of the year.
What I discovered was that Syracuse and CNY in general remained quiet for the most part, minus petty crimes that happen everywhere all the time, not just here in CNY. Since I bring up other locations, I must say that crime was felt at other locations across the country and our thoughts and prayers go out to those involved.
