6. Hastings Central
Hastings District is a food production region. The fertile Heretaunga Plains surrounding the city produce stone fruits, pome fruit, kiwifruit and vegetables, and the area is one of New Zealand’s major red wine producers.
This is a very good business area meaning more cash flows in and out of this city and that makes it a breeding ground for criminals. Most of the crimes here include robberies, assaults and snatching of phones at knife-point.
