"In 1992, the Manhattan Institute's quarterly policy magazine, City Journal, published a special issue focused on 'The Quality of Urban Life.' At the time, New York was a dangerous, dirty, and purportedly ungovernable city... In the years to come, New York followed through, cleaning up the streets and subways, reducing crime dramatically, and prospering. Victories are never permanent, though, and serious challenges remain." — Lawrence Mone, Manhattan Institute President

“Quality of life” is a subjective term. Numbers tell part of the story, but citizens often have an intuitive sense of whether conditions in a city are improving or declining. Recent polls indicate New Yorkers are deeply dissatisfied with the direction of the city under Mayor de Blasio, with voters across the spectrum expressing concerns about crime and a perceived decline in the quality of life.

On November 19th, The Beat hosted its first ever Quality of Life Panel moderated by NY1 Anchor Errol Louis with NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton, Senior Advisor to the Mayor Phil Walzak, and Manhattan Institute Senior Fellows Jason Riley and Fred Siegel.

The event was held in the 7 World Trade Center building in the heart of Manhattan.
