New York City so far this year has recorded a 10-day stretch with no slayings and a 24-hour period without even a nonfatal shooting, stabbing or slashing — evidence that it’s on its way “to becoming an incredibly safe city,” NYPD Commissioner William Bratton said Tuesday.

De Blasio credited Bratton for having “driven down already historically low levels of crime” during his administration’s first 10 weeks through a “spirit of collaboration.”

Bratton pledged to improve the numbers even more going forward: “The bottom is zero.”
