If a recent survey by Talking Transitions is any indication, this is a sentiment echoed by many people living in the Big Apple. Following the 2013 mayoral election, nearly 53,000 New Yorkers were polled on the streets for their opinions on the city. The number one concern on everyone's minds? New Yorkers in every neighborhood and age group say that housing in the city is unaffordable. A staggering 68% of survey takers think the situation is only getting worse. Plus, more than 50% of respondents in all boroughs said their ability to find a good job in NYC is diminishing.
To be sure, this is fairly disappointing news. But, before you cry into a pillow, there's a small silver lining: 42% of New Yorkers think that transportation is improving. So, props to you, MTA! (Talking Transition)
