A view of New York City from the Empire State Building on Tuesday. The city just had its first weekend without a single shooting in at least 25 years.

“A city of 8.6 million people — not a single shooting for three days,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday. The NYPD says it’s been focusing on preventing retaliatory violence.
