An NYPD report on 2011 stop-and-frisks shows no racial profiling, a spokesman for the agency told the New York Daily News.
The report, the first official release of data from the NYPD's stop-and-frisk program, lists stops by precinct. The tactic was used most in Brooklyn and Queens, where nearly all suspects who were stopped were black or Latino.
Brooklyn’s 75th, which includes East New York and Cypress Hills, had the most stops. More than 31,000 people were stopped, and 97 percent of them were either black or Hispanic, reports the New York Post.
Other precincts rounding out the top five were the 73rd Precinct, covering Brownsville in Brooklyn; the 115th Precinct, which includes East Elmhurst, Corona and Jackson Heights in Queens; the 40th Precinct in The Bronx, which covers Mott Haven and Melrose; and the 90th Precinct in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Who gives a damn about the racial profiling angle, the practise is unconstitutional.

I have to make a comment... I grew up in and around those neighborhoods in NYC. I lived in Queens, Brooklyn, and a short time in Manhattan (Lwr East Side). Don't think those numbers are profiling, the demographics of those neighborhoods happen to be mostly black and Hispanic except for Corona which when I was there was mostly Italian. Jackson Heights and Elmhurst was a mix but leaning toward Middle Eastern in the early 1990's.

If this happens on Fire Island, NY it would be easier to say it was cultural more than discriminatory. Stop Frisk is completely legal "John@" please read Terry Vs Ohio in Constitutional Law.
