Burglary Map

This is a modified map of a crime plot for burglaries in our area from August 1st, 2010 to the present. The burglaries are recorded by "hundred block", which means a road segment between two roads. The red segments indicate that there were one or more burglaries. Blue segments indicate no burglaries for the period on the block segment. The area overlays is a rough attempt at grouping the block faces to see if there are any patterns.

Why are burglaries occuring in some areas and not others? Are there corridors that are at higher risk? Why? Is there a difference in  how a burglary happened on isolated blocks? Are there any block faces with only one mean of egress that were hit? What the heck are they doing right up on north 20th through 25th?
