New York's wealthy Upper East Side reports a shocking 286% increase in robberies - with armed gunmen holding up residents just feet from the homes of billionaires

EXCERPT:

New York City's wealthiest neighborhood is grappling with a spike in armed robberies, new data reveals.   

Manhattan's Upper East Side has seen 27 robberies over the past four weeks - a 286 percent increase when compared to the same period last year, according to the NYPD. 

Alarmingly, a significant number of those have involved locals being held up at gunpoint. 

For the entirety of 2019, the Upper East Side only reported four armed robberies. This year, 14 have already been reported. 

The figures are causing alarm in the ritzy neighborhood, where residents boast an average annual income of $322,400. 

The Upper East Side is also known for its high concentration of billionaires - and some of the crimes have taken place just feet from their lavish residences.
