Illegal Fireworks in NYC

Several publications (New York Times, NBC) have mentioned an increase in illegal fireworks complaints in NYC. Looking into the 311 data there was a surge of complaints in June 2020 and we are only slightly more than 1/2 through the month. The data was pulled from NYC’s open data portal on Monday, June 22nd. The drastic spike reminded me of the chart of un-employment claims on the front of the New York Times a few months ago. See the page on Fast Company.
