Eric Adams flew off the handle after seeing this revealing crime report

If you have ever visited the Big Apple then you can probably remember the first time you laid eyes on that unmistakable skyline.

No other city in the world can compare to New York City, which explains why so many people visit and live there. 

But Eric Adams flew off the handle after seeing this revealing crime report.

New York’s crime problem is destroying its tourism industry 

Like many other large cities, tourism accounts for a significant part of New York City’s economy.

New York City has a lot to offer, between its world-class dining selections, jaw-dropping museums, and beautiful parks.

However, crime has completely overwhelmed the Big Apple in recent years.

New York’s crime problem impacts nearly every neighborhood of New York City, and victims range from infants to senior citizens. 

According to a report released on Thursday from New York’s comptroller office, crime has had a devastating impact on New York’s tourism industry. 

According to Comptroller Tom DiNapoli, roughly 62.2 million people visited New York City last year as compared to 2019’s 66.6 million visitors.

DiNapoli released a statement along with the report, which argues that crime has destroyed New York City’s tourism infrastructure over the last several years.

On Thursday, DiNapoli told the press, “Our city and state leaders need to focus on keeping New York a desirable and safe destination for individuals and families from around the world.”

The report itself claims that “Some visitors may also be hesitant to return amid perceptions of crime and public safety in the City.” 

More specifically, the report points to failed measures from Mayor Eric Adams and New York Governor Kathy Hochul.

Primarily Hochul’s attempt to secure the subways by putting National Guard troops in the subway.

Furthermore, the report explains that foreign tourism in particular has dipped nearly 14% since the pandemic. 

Experts attribute this dip to the fact that foreign tourists have become targets for criminals in recent years. 

Many foreign tourists fear that visiting New York City will put a target on their back, making them victims of theft or violent crime. 

Other tourism-related industry leaders have also emphasized the decline in tourism in recent years, including NYC Hotel Association CEO Vijay Dandapani.

The New York Post quoted Dandapani’s recent claims that, “The hotel industry not only lags its numbers of 2019, a benchmark year for most industries, but also lags its competitors in other major international gateway cities like London and Paris. Both of those markets surpassed their 2019 numbers in 2023.”

New York City could face significant economic hardship if changes are not made swiftly.

Without a thriving tourism industry, local businesses struggle to make ends meet.

This includes hotels, restaurants, retail outlets and other businesses that need tourists in order to survive.

Instead of getting a grip on crime, New York officials such as District Attorney Alvin Bragg have focused their energy on political hit jobs such as the Trump trial.

As crime soars in the Big Apple, experts warn that the economy could face major repercussions.
