Residents tend to see more progress in their own part of the city than those who live in other areas. For instance, 52 percent of those living in the Northeast quadrant say the quality of life there has gotten better in the past decade, but that drops to 42 percent of those who live in other regions. And almost six in 10 Northwest residents say it has improved, while 51 percent of residents in other quadrants say the same about the area.
