Neighborhood Views on New York City Services A Survey Among Residents in Bedford Stuyvesant, Bay Ridge, and Tremont


Vera conducted a pilot project to test the feasibility and value of gathering public opinion data on a systematic and scientific basis for use by city government in designing, implementing, and evaluating various programs and policies affecting the people of New York. Vera commissioned Opinion Research Corporation of Princeton, NJ to conduct the major portion of the survey. Part 1 of the project compares the views of black residents of Bedford-Stuyvesant with those of white residents in Bay Ridge on city services, police, crime and drug addiction. Part 2 explores attitudes toward neighborhood health facilities, public schools and preschool programs.
