Understanding the Relationship Between Infrastructure and Women’s Public Safety: A Case Study of New York City

This study explores the association between urban infrastructure and the number of public crimes affecting women in public and transportation places in New York City. It scrutinizes the influence of damaged streetlights, pavement conditions, vacant and unsecured buildings, socioeconomic factors, and the distance to women’s resources, facilities, and subway stations on women’s safety, which emphasizes the significance of gender equality considerations in urban infrastructure development.
