Brownsville Deadliest Neighborhood in New York

In 2012, Brooklyn had the highest murder rate in New York City, accounting for 39 percent of the city’s murders. Most of those deaths occurred in Brownsville. With the recent shooting death of 1-year-old Antiq Hennis in the neighborhood, BET.com takes a look at one of the most violent neighborhoods in the nation. Dominique Zonyéé
