Residential Satisfaction and Downtown Development

residential satisfaction

The Stony Brook Center for Survey Research polled residents of Long Island, as well as residents of suburban northern New Jersey, Westchester and southern Connecticut suburbs, in fall 2010. The telephone survey examines how Long Islanders and residents of neighboring areas see their downtowns and the extent to which they support the types of changes necessary to create more housing and jobs in downtowns. The survey reveals a tension between Long Islanders’ high regard for their quality of life and their perception of problems that threaten the viability of this lifestyle’s a contrast that is more acute on Long Island than in other suburban areas of the New York metropolitan region. Report written by Leonie Huddy, Stony Brook University Center for Survey Research.
