Map: How Happy is Your 'Hood?

New, 21 comments

Over the weekend the Times published the results of a city survey that polled some 25,000 households about life in their neighborhoods, asking people their satisfaction levels on topics such as noise, rat control, school safety, restaurant cleanliness and all sorts of quality of life topics. The accompanying bit of multimedia, in which the results of each question are displayed by community board, are transfixing. Above, a look at how people rated their neighborhoods as places to live. Staten Island is the most pleased overall, while 92% of Upper East Siders and 86% of the chunk of Brooklyn containing Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Gowanus, Park Slope and Red Hook said their 'hoods are excellent. Less chipper: Harlem, Bed-Stuy, Bushwick and nearly all of the Bronx.
