Based on several studies, New York is expected to grow faster than any other city over the next ten years. Some studies have shown that the cities in New York are among the safest cities in the United States. A July report by Wallet Barometer, a consumer research firm, found that New York was the safest city in the United States, based on a number of statistical measures. Wallet Barometer performed separate research for the 50 largest cities in the U.S. It found that New York came in at the fifth safest city in the U.S. based on statistical measures.

Consulting Firm Mckinsey

According to the most recent study conducted by the consulting firm McKinsey, New York City ranks at the top when it comes to ‘being a great place to be while looking for property’. Specifically, a lot of building projects have been taken up to extend the existing subway lines and make it possible for more people to commute within the metropolitan area. At present, the Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority has proposed adding two ferry terminals to the Long Island Sound. Other projects proposed include a new tunnel connection connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan, building a second ferry terminal in New Haven, Connecticut, and opening a new pedestrian plaza at Manhattan’s Wall Street.

Summing Up

According to a recent study by Wallet Barometer, New York City now ranks last year as the largest cities in the United States. Other cities in the top five were Houston, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Even though some might say that New York City was not selected because of the way it was built, as compared to other cities, or the way people were treated, New York City ranked first for its economy, technology and education, as well as for the quality of life. So, even though the cost of living is high, as compared to other cities, or the crime rate may be a bit high, when it comes to population growth, New York City is still one of the largest cities in the United States.
