NYC has the infrastructure and public resources to provide a high quality of life for its residents, especially when compared to other global cities. New York City even has lower property sales prices than Hong Kong, London, and Toronto. A central feature of city life is the many parks and public spaces, which are spread over the five boroughs and cover about 14% of the city, adding up to almost 30,000 acres of land. Living is made even more enjoyable by NYC’s diverse, extensive, and affordable transportation networks. 57% of workers commute to work using public transportation, including the subways that run 24/7, bus routes, and expanded citywide ferry systems.
