NEW YORK, NY-February 13, 2015 - What’s on the minds of New Yorkers? Baruch College has partnered with NY1 News to develop “The City Poll,” a news segment dedicated to analyzing and discussing issues about New York City’s quality of life.

Throughout the year, this new effort will survey and report on the effectiveness of city leaders and services, neighborhood needs, and other aspects about life in New York City. The plan is to produce a “conversation” on the findings after each poll.

On February 10,Micheline "Mickey" Blum, a Distinguished Lecturer and Director of Baruch College Survey Research (BCSR) and Doug Muzzio, Professor of Public Affairs,  joined Inside City Hall host Errol Louis, to analyze and discuss the first poll and Mayor Bill de Blasio’s recent State of the City speech, which took place at Baruch on February 3, 2015.

Baruch College will continue to track the results from future polls as they become available throughout the year.
