The Union Square Partnership garnered high marks in this past year’s Community Opinion Survey. Overall, respondents reported a 94% satisfaction rate with USP services and 90% were pleased with the quality-of-life in the Union Square area. This year’s survey showed 85% satisfaction in District Safety; this represents a drop from previous years and USP is committed to working closely with our partners at the NYPD’s 6th, 9th, and 13th precincts as well as NYC Park Enforcement Officers to improve conditions in the district. In Union Square Park, more than 95% of respondents are satisfied with USP’s landscaping efforts, which includes our planters and flowers along 17th Street and Broadway, our hanging baskets around the park, and the bistro tables, chairs and umbrellas we maintain in our plazas and open spaces. The annual Community Opinion Survey is an important tool that will help us develop neighborhood improvements, organize free community programming, and continue to support our thriving small business community in the coming year.
