I don't think you can put the reduction all on a zoning change. Maybe I'm wrong.

No, its not all zoning. Its also stricter enforcement of existing laws, stricter sentencing for gun crimes, and a cultural shift in the overall community away from fire-arms. And NYC does in fact have relatively strict gun laws as compared to many other cities and states.
