Crime in Central Park has jumped by 45% this year, NYPD figures show.

The Manhattan greenspace's precinct recorded 90 major crimes as of Oct. 24, compared with 62 in the same period last year.

Grand larcenies led the uptick, rising to 56 in 2010, up from 35 a year earlier, according to the NYPD.

"It's always a big concern when there is crime in our public spaces," said Geoffrey Croft, head of NYC Park Advocates, which first reported the rise.
