If you were to try to break some minor laws in New York City such as, oh I don’t know, sipping an adult beverage outside, or puffing on a bit of the longbottom leaf, or relieving your bodily fluids in the open air, you ought to check this map first. The New York World has dissected the so-called “pink slip” summons (those for minor infractions) from 2011 to show the biggest hot spots. Williamsburg had a lot of summonses for for pot possession (you guys…), although not as many as Sheepshead Bay, and way more than Bed-Stuy. You can look up where you’re most likely to get busted for drinking in public too, but if you are getting caught doing that, you are a rookie who should be hazed until you learn better.
The map is missing the breakdown of racial/stop-and-frisk/economic breakdowns, so there’s that to factor in too.
PS: Breaking laws is illegal and so are drugs, so don’t do them ever.

Wow, they break each stat down into “White” and “Non-white.” That’s not at all subtle.
Pandemic! We got that Pandemic!
