Last summer my wife and I visited NYC for our wedding anniversary. We stayed in Times Square which turned out to be both busy and safe. One of the most noticeable things to me in Times Square and in the whole of New York was that there were no dented Taxi Cabs. Not one. Not a scratch. Not even a minor blemish. Every cab we saw was clean and shiny.


It didn’t used to be that way. A couple of decades ago Times Square was seedy, run down, and a pretty dangerous place. What made the difference?


Well, I’m told that about 10 years ago the decision was made to catch the little things in the area. The vagrants, the graffiti, and the little problems were all cleaned up. When they did all the big problems like robberies and muggings started to go away too.


Control the minor evils and you will control the major evils at least that is the theory and it worked in NYC!
