Quality of life may be on the downturn here, but not length of it. "Life expectancy has risen by a year and three months since 2001, giving New Yorkers a life-expectancy of 79 years old," reports AMNY. "And last year, the death toll citywide dropped to a record-low of 6.5 deaths per 1,000 people; the number of overall deaths, meanwhile, have dropped from 60,218 in 2001 to 54,073 in 2007."
Long Live New Yorkers
