NEW YORK - The NYPD is for the first time sharing new information about crime in the city's public housing buildings.

According to the latest data, crime in public housing increased 31 percent between 2009 and 2013, compared to a 3.3-percent increase throughout the rest of the city. 

In terms of crime citywide, the recent NYPD statistics show homicides are down 15.5 percent, but shootings are up 13 percent this year compared to last.
