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

91 / 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.

62 / 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.

76 / 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.

85 / 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.

70 / 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.

Since it's close to City College, over the last few years a lot of hip bars and cool restaurants have opened up in the area, which is nice. It's also close to River Bank State Park, which has a pool, track field, and basketball courts. The view on Riverside Drive is very nice. The winter months are quiescent, rendering the neighborhood pretty decent. People stay in their homes, not on the street, and in general mind their own business.

The warmer months of the year, however, are absolutely horrible. This block is exceptionally loud during the summer. People of all ages playing excessively loud music on the blocks well into the night on weekdays and weekends, fire hydrants turned on to combat the heat, and a lot of men catcalling women and making comments here and there. Older residents smoke in the building and sometimes in hallways. The party people (younger crowd) tend to leave their trash (food, waste) on the streets, and there are flies around and bad odors especially in the hotter months.

If you can't afford any better, this is an acceptable neighborhood to live in. If you can afford to move out though, I would.

I grew up in that building. It was family oriented. I grew up in apt 52. What I am disappointed in it that they changed that huge apt in a smaller. The whole building was basically family. I was on top floor, my god mother was in apt 54. My mother's friend was in apt 51. In apt 44 was my uncle, and my aunt who was my 2nd godmother was in apt 21.
