What does your Manhattan neighborhood do better than anywhere else in the city? Where could it use some improvement? The Citizens Budget Commission has some data on what your neighbors think.

The commission recently released the results of a neighborhood survey measuring residents’ satisfaction with quality of life and city services at the community district level. According to the survey, Manhattan residents enjoy greater overall satisfaction with their neighborhoods than residents of any other borough (Bronx residents were found to be the least satisfied). Residents of Manhattan Community District 7 reported the highest overall satisfaction with their neighborhood as a place to live — 92.2 percent of the district’s respondents rated the Upper West Side community “good” or “excellent.”

Published here are select results of the survey for the Upper West Side, the Upper East Side, downtown and Chelsea. The full results of the survey, based on the responses of 9,800 New Yorkers collected by the National Research Center in January 2017, are available on the Citizens Budget Commission’s website, cbcny.org.
