On Wednesday, Hudson Valley Post reported on the 10 most dangerous places in New York. RoadSnacks recently released "The 10 Worst Places To Live In New York For 2021." The website says they use, “data to create bite-sized snacks of shareable information about places and cities across the country.” The website is quick to add their “goal is to show you the real side of places that not everyone wants to hear.”

Using the FBI's crime stats, the website ranked every city in New York with a population of over 5,000 based off violent crime and property crime per capita.

Below are the 10 most dangerous places in New York, according to Roadsnacks:

  1. Binghamton
  2. Niagara Falls
  3. Buffalo
  4. Rochester
  5. Watertown
  6. Syracuse
  7. Utica
  8. Albany
  9. Johnson City Village
  10. Jamestown

Hudson Valley residents can be proud no city made the top 10. However, six hometowns were ranked in the top 40 most dangerous cities.
