What does Upper East Side do better than anywhere else in the city? Where could it use some improvement? The Citizens Budget Commission has some data on what your neighbors think.

The commission recently released the results of a neighborhood survey measuring residents' satisfaction with quality of life and city services at the community district level. Published here are select results for Community District 8, including broad quality of life indicators and categories in which Upper East Side residents gave their neighborhood particularly high or particularly low marks.

The full results of the survey, based on the responses of 9,800 New Yorkers collected by the National Research Center in January 2017, are available on the Citizens Budget Commission's website, cbcny.org.
