Life Quality Index (LQI)

You want to know what is the best place to live. With the Life Quality Index, or LQI, we make it a lot easier to decide which place is better to live.

The LQI is calculated by combining all our data on transportation, safety, health, affordability, entertainment, demographics, leisure and other essentials for everyday life. All our data comes from very reliable sources, like the MTA, NYPD, Google, Socrata, Foursquare and the U.S. Census to offer you the best information to find the right place to live.

It is so racist and anti-community to divide our neighborhood into east & west. It helps divide us and weaken our ability to work together for the common good. The west is labeled Mexican and the East Chinese - "painting" us with a brush that wipes out the richness of our diverse community that comes from not just Mexico but Central & South America and not just China but all corners of Asia. So sad that this is done for some statistical excuse and ultimately makes so many of us invisible.
