Yep, in this key insurance category Enlarge Bloomberg Despite last year’s Super Storm Sandy that left significant damage along New York’s coast line, residents are only seeing 1.1% increases in homeowner policy rates after they file their first claim. On Monday, we discussed why banking in New York City is actually more affordable than other areas of the country, thanks to a Bankrate.com survey. But that’s not the only area where New York is a surprising bargain. Bankrate’s sister comapny, InsuranceQuotes.com , released a study this morning that shows New York State residents with homeowner policies see only a 1.1% hike a on average–in their insurance rates after they make their first claim on said policy. That number is quite low. New York is only bested by Texas, which by law does not allow insurance providers to bolster rates at all after a policyas first filed claim. The national average for rate increases after an initial claim is filed is a 7.9% bump from New Yorkas stat at 9%. Despite a large number of New York residents who saw protected property damaged by last yearas Super Storm Sandy , the state has managed to stay far away from the rate increases of Minnesota, which leads the nation with 21.2% premium hikes on average after a single claim is filed. Residents of neighboring New Jersey sit right at the average with approximately 9% increases after an inaugural claim is filed . Because of states like that, senior insurance analyst at InsuranceQuotes.com, Laura Adams urged U.S. residents to weigh their options before filing damages to covered properties with their provider. aHomeowners should think very carefully about whether or not to make a claim,a she said via a release. aLetas say you have a $1,000 deductible and the claim is going to lead to a 20% rate hike; itas probably not worth making a modest-sized claim.a Page 1

Giuliani became mayor amid a historic crime wave fueled by an epidemic of addiction to crack-cocaine, and after a riot of exploded tensions between blacks and Orthodox Jews in Crown Heights, Brooklyn that made him the brunt of criticism. Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whose third and final term ends Dec. 31, won as a Republican in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, with Giulianis endorsement. FBI statistics depict New York as the safest big city in the U.S., with murders down 37 percent 11 years after Giuliani was mayor to 417 last year. Total felonies have declined by 74 percent since 1993, with the benefit mostly experienced in predominantly minority neighborhoods, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly has said. Most of todays New Yorkers either werent alive or residents when in some neighborhoods it wasnt safe to venture out after dark. One condition necessary for Lhotas longshot candidacy to gain credibility is for those bad days or at least fear of them to capture the collective imagination of the voters, in a way that casts doubt on de Blasios ability to protect the city. Today, a homeless man with a pair of scissors went on a rampage through Manhattans Riverside Park, stabbing five people, including a 2-year-old boy and his father, James Fayette, 35, a former principal dancer with the New York City ballet, who with the help of a passerby overpowered the attacker until police could arrive. Fayette remained hospitalized with a wound to his chest; his son received stitches on a a slashed arm before getting released in good condition. On Friday a 33-year-old mother repelled an attempted sexual assault after she was attacked while jogging in an upper Manhattan park along the Hudson River, as she pushed her 8-month-old son in a stroller. Television news programs today continue to run video posted on the Internet of a Sunday incident showing a motorcycle gang surrounding a family in an SUV on Manhattans West Side Highway, then bashing in the drivers window.
