Of New York City voters report things are going in the wrong direction, and 45% say they are moving in the right one, a new Marist poll finds. “To compound New Yorkers’ downbeat attitude about the city, fewer than one in five residents, 17%, believes the overall quality of life in the city has improved over the last year. A majority, 56%, reports it has either gotten worse, 33%, or has remained the same which, in their view, is a bad thing, 23%.”
