The Bronx Was Just Named NYC’s Most Unfriendly Borough
A survey of New York’s five boroughs has uncovered opinions about what neighbors complain about the most and which borough has the friendliest residents.
In a survey of 1,000 New Yorkers conducted by real estate search engine Homes.com, Manhattan was deemed the friendliest borough, with 27 percent of respondents calling it friendly, while the Bronx was the least agreeable, with only 7 percent of respondents calling it friendly.
The Bronx is also the borough that respondents wanted least to live in, with a full 38 percent calling it the ‘least desirable’ New York borough, Homes.com added.
New Yorkers talk to their neighbors more than the average American, with 71 percent of residents speaking to their neighbors on a weekly basis while only 64 percent of coast-to-coast Americans can say the same, Homes.com reported.
Forty-six percent of New Yorkers have argued with their neighbors about noise, making it the single largest reason to argue, with parking next at 26 percent, Homes.com added.
Nationally, only 18 percent of Americans have complained to their neighbors about noise.
