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

96 / Good

Transportation

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.

100 / Excellent

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.

92 / Good

Safety

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

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.

95 / 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.

89 / Good

Entertainment

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.

30 / Poor

Demographics

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.

Don't live here, it's not safe, the building is disgusting, there are constantly drug dealers, drug addicts and other homeless people hanging out on the steps, sleeping in the vestibule, harassing you and threatening you as you try to walk in every day. The management company could care less about you, they just want your money. As a young woman I am fearful every day here, i am afraid to come home late at night and even during the day. Sure the rent is cheap and the apartments seem nice, but it's no worth it.

People want to move into Harlem , a predominantly African American community. Their memory is lost , because they forget, they treated our people like crap in the south, therefore, they relocated north, and Harlem became the place the majority of African Americans settled. But, now you want to follow us to OUR community take the neighborhood over but, again you forget to realize , those who live here are the offspring's of those badly treated slaves you didn't want to live around. So the question is,
why do you want to move in this neighborhood ? ... Again, to take away from others, like you once did the Indians? ... smh , The nerve of you to complain... did you care to think that maybe this neighborhood is not for you?...

I was brought from the hospital after birth to this building and lived there in apartment #43 until I graduated from Yale and went to Tokyo where I taught English as a Second Language and studied the Japanese language. I grew up during the heroin epidemic, so yes there were drug dealers and drug addicts all around. But there was also a community of African Americans who looked out for me and supported my mother who raised me alone after her marriage to my father broke up. Whenever a neighborhood has problems and it is black or Latino, nobody cares about it. Now it is becoming white and it's a problem? It was always a problem. Where was the attention then? By the way, some of the people who helped my mother were drug dealers and number runners and waiters and women who cleaned houses for a living. Yes, there were problems, but my mother believed in treating everyone as she wanted to be treated. I became a tenured English professor and now I am a writer and publisher. So yes, people can grow up in troubled circumstances and still have a good life.
