The Most Dangerous Place In New York…

Posted: October 19, 2011 by Keith Stone in crime and punishment, New York

The most dangerous place in New York isn’t the South Bronx, Harlem, or even MetLife Stadium during a Jets game. It’s the Statue of Liberty. En route to Liberty Island, guests are forced to undergo airport-level screening by magnetometers and X-ray machines. So far in 2011, the U.S. Park Police has confiscated over 10,000 weapons including knives, brass knuckles, blackjacks (I don’t know what they are but they sound fun—double down!), and screwdrivers.That’s almost enough weapons for a Mick Foley hardcore match. All that’s missing is a flaming table, baseball bat covered in barbed wire, and thumbtacks…lots of thumbtacks. Apparently it’s tourists that carry weapons because they hear that the big, bad city is so scary but the Statue of Liberty is perfectly safe. Everybody knows that black people prefer going to the Empire State Building.
