Your chances of being the victim of a crime in Glen Cove are less than in most other cities in the country, according to a recent report.

The website NeighborhoodScout released its list of the Top 100 Safest Cities in the U.S. for cities with populations of more than 25,000 people. Glen Cove ranked 12, one spot higher than Greenwich, Conn. and one behind Sammamish, Wash.

The rankings are based on the total number of property and violent crimes per 1,000 residents. Crimes include burglary, larceny, motor vehicle theft, murder, forcible rape, armed robbery and aggravated assault.

Chances of becoming a victim of violent crime in Glen Cove are one-in-1,504, whereas they are one-in-251 in New York State as a whole, the latter number being on par with the rest of the country.

The property crime rate comparison shows another wide gap, with a one-in-127 chance of becoming a victim in Glen Cove compared to a one-in-52 chance statewide.

Glen Cove experiences a median of 12 crimes per square mile, compared to 47 per square mile for the state and a national median of 39.6, according to the ranking.

The city was rated as having a median of 18 violent crimes and 213 property crimes annually, according to data reported to the FBI.

Det. Lt. John Nagle of the Glen Cove Police Department said having a local police force helps in preventing crime. He said 36 of the department's 45 members are city residents.

"Our officers are out there in the community. We know who the bad guys are," he said

Upcoming Events

Cornelia Hernes, Stephen Bauman, and Steve Forster: Selected Works
A Group Exhibition and Collaborative Works at Hersh Fine Art, Glen Cove, NY
September 10-October 6, 2016


 

                 Glen Cove, NY--Hersh Fine Art, of the Long Island Academy of Fine Art, is pleased to present a group exhibition of drawings and paintings by Cornelia Hernes, Stephen Bauman, and Steve Forster. The exhibition will be on view from September 10 to October 6, 2016.  The artists will be present for an opening reception on Saturday, September 10, from 6pm to 9pm, which includes a live painting and drawing demonstration from 4pm to 7pm.  The exhibition and demonstration are free and open to the public.
Hernes and Bauman currently reside in Jersey City, NJ as principal instructors at the Jersey City branch of the Florence Academy of Art.  Forster, a resident of Glen Cove, is director of the Long Island Academy of Fine Art, where he also teaches.
The collaborative work of Steve Forster and Stephen Bauman merge the talents of two painters with similar backgrounds, but with different artistic visions. These collaborations recreate beloved Long Island landscapes, such as Cedarmere in Roslyn and Morgan Park in Glen Cove, bringing to them the creative friction that comes from the visual interplay of two different artists’ interpretations, and the textures of two different artists’ hands.  These pictures, described by the artists as “abstract realism,” are like jazz improvisation; they bring out previously untapped qualities in each artist as one answers the other in the same painting.   Together Bauman and Forster reach the height of sensitivity to atmosphere, light and color, transcending the subject matter.
Stephen Bauman's portraits center on the emotional inner life of his subjects. Through his mastery of drawing media, he aims to capture the human spirit as it passes from one experience to another.  The drawings are an homage to the craft itself, offering an observable dialog between the artist’s mind and hand as we see clearly defined planar shifts, cross-hatching, and erasure marks.
Cornelia Hernes, born and raised in Norway, spent most of her formative teen years in Africa.  This exposure to a variety of vastly different cultural norms has given her a respect for and celebration of life and individual personhood that she brings to her portraiture.  Her drawings and paintings are rarely simply the rendering of a model.  One can often detect layered meanings, such as in the painting Scarlet Ribbon.  A young woman with unrestrained red hair is in jarring contrast with a green background.  Her expression is determined, almost fierce, which seems to be at odds with the tender heart-shaped pendant and girlishly disheveled scarlet ribbon in her hair. It may call to mind someone who will defy expectations placed upon them, or perhaps, that a woman is not defined by her emotions and beauty alone.
This exhibition will run from September 10 through October 6, 2016, with a gallery reception on September 10 from 6-9pm.  For details please refer to www.hershfineart.com or: Hersh Fine Art at The Long Island Academy of Fine Art 14A Glen Street
