A new report on crime shows that riders waiting at the Broad Channel subway station in Queens may encounter more crime than at any other station.

According to a Daily News report based on police data recorded from July 2008 through June 2013, the crime rate at the small Queens station is higher than at any other station across the city.

Over that five-year period, the Daily News says there were 112 felonies and misdemeanors logged at the station with an average of 27 crimes per every 100,000 trips.

The news report found the 2 and 3 line's Wall Street station had the lowest crime rate.
