NEW Manhattan Institute/Zogby Analytics Poll

Warning to Next Mayor: NYC Growing Too Expensive & Reform Needed Now

NEW YORK CITY: Fewer than half (45%) of New Yorkers think the city is headed in the right direction, and an alarming 57% aged 18 to 49 would consider leaving the city for better jobs, according to a new poll commissioned by the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research and conducted by Zogby Analytics. Sources of this dissatisfaction range from underperforming schools to a difficult business environment to inadequate infrastructure and transportation services.
“With the city already too expensive to live in, according to 70% of New Yorkers, politicians need to be honest with voters: the city cannot spend more but rather needs to find ways to save,” said Lawrence Mone, president of the Manhattan Institute. “The good news is that New Yorkers support all the key elements of K–12 education reform, which could provide better education and keep costs in check. Also, strong support for the NYPD’s policing practices shows that New Yorkers value a safe city.”
Since New York City is in a precarious fiscal situation, the Manhattan Institute has surveyed New Yorkers to explore the key issues the public is most concerned about in advance of this important Mayoral election. A special June issue of the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal will identify the most important policy questions that New York’s next mayor will confront and provide recommendations about how to keep the city safe, well-run, and economically vibrant.
