Online survey of property owners, tenants, and visitors shows high satisfaction with district services.
Last year, 34th Street Partnership released the 2013 Community Satisfaction Survey, asking residents, owners, office workers, and visitors to 34th Street to rate the quality of our services, streetscape furniture, and programming. The responses were tabulated, and the results show some interesting information.
The center of our district, and site of the area’s largest public spaces, is at the intersection of Broadway, 6th Avenue, and 34th Street. We were pleased to learn that 65% of our survey’s respondents said they spent time here – at Herald and Greeley Square or on Broadway Boulevard – at least once a month. Broadway Bites, presented by UrbanSpace, proved to be the public program that respondents were most aware of, followed by the Broadway French Market, operated by Bensidoun USA.
We were also gratified to see high satisfaction with our services and streetscape elements, as respondents marked mostly 7’s and 8’s on a scale running from 1 (the lowest rating) to 10 (the highest rating). Those respondents also rated the newly implemented CitiBike program, operated by NYC Bike Share, quite highly.
We take these survey responses and open comments very seriously, so we thank everyone who took time to participate.
Bryant Park Corporation also distributed a Community Satisfaction Survey for 2013, and we’ll discuss those results in a later issue of MidCity News.
