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.

I moved here seven years ago from the east side. The river views and the parks and piers are great. Sometimes I miss being closer to uptown museums and Lincoln Center. I had to give up going to my tennis club, and the lack of daily exercise is a downer because I'm not a runner.
