(09/19/04) THE BRONX - While the Republican National Convention was in full swing up inside Madison Square Garden a couple weeks ago, crime was rising down below.

NYPD statistics show felonies in the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn subways rose the week of the convention. Crime in heavily patrolled Manhattan stations went down that week.

The new statistics come after city officials had originally reported a decrease in crime citywide during the GOP Convention.
