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.

Official statistics

99 / Good


You want to be free to go wherever you want, when you want. So in our LQI we use all the available data on public transport, taxi services, parking places and the distance to the city center or the next borough when calculating the livability of a place.

59 / Average

Daily Life

Life is all about the small things, so if you have everything you need nearby, then that is a great plus! When we calculate the Daily Life for the LQI, we take everything into account. Ranging from the distance to the nearest convenience stores and places of worship to Wi-Fi Hotspots and financial services.

100 / Excellent


You want to feel safe in your new home, so in the LQI you will be able to find all our data on crime levels and the nearest police and fire stations for that particular place.

30 / Poor


Health is important to us all. In the LQI we include everything related to your well-being: the proximity to health and medical facilities, but also pollution levels, the proximity you live to busy truck routes or factories, and even the number of noise complaints.

97 / Good

Sports and Leisure

When you have time off, you want to relax and have fun. So the closer to sport facilities, beauty salons and spas, running tracks and interesting places, the better.

98 / Good


Let’s face it, what would life be without restaurants, bars, cafes, museums and other entertainment venues? That’s why we include it in our LQI.

80 / Good


We use data on demographics to calculate our Life Quality Index. We all want to feel welcome in our community and at home in our neighborhood. Things like average income, education levels, and poverty index are all taken into account to create the LQI.

Historically, neighborhoods around transportation hubs have been run-down and transient. Their value has been in location and not quality of life. This home of mine has proven for many years to be unmatched for commuting location and now with Chelsea Piers, a renovated riverfront, The HighLine and Hudson Yards all within walking distance, the recreational options are outstanding. the new restaurants that will spring-up to serve the development of Hudson Yards, the art galleries that have already sprung up, have made this area unmatched in the city and getting even better. Oh and a brand-new school building that just opened last year for the zoned public school to boot! Oh, and arguably one of the best roof-deck views in the city. Oh, and last week I was walking home, passed Madison Square Garden, walked up to the ticket window, waited in line behind (I swear to God) only one person and (at 5:45pm) bought tickets on the floor to see Bruce Springsteen, went home, had dinner with my wife and kid and took them back to the Garden for the 7:30 show. Monday I have a meeting for the hallway renovation committee of the building (now that we've renovated the lobby and roof deck). There are no words to describe how amazing of a place this is to live.
