Nobody Was Murdered For Nine Whole Days And Other Gifts The Cold Gave Us

Recent frigid temperatures may be the bane of your morning commute to class, but they’re doing the city at least one small service: Due to the winter’s chill, NYC just had nine full days without a single murder (Unfortunately our murder-free streak was broken over the weekend).

Yes, in our fair city, a week and a half without someone ending another human’s life is cause for celebration.

More shocking than the city going nine days without a murder is that we have to make note of going nine days WITHOUT A MURDER. But violence is not the only ill to which we’ve become accustomed. These freezing days have given us a few more under-reported gifts.
