Um, what kind of idiots are you having conduct this “research”? Astoria is a great neighborhood for a date. Much better than the South Bronx, Crown Heights, or Bay Ridge. Or is that “least desirable when just considering Manhattan and DUMBO” which that map suggests? And Long Island is the perfect weekend getaway? It’s closer than Rhode Island, but who wants to go on a romantic weekend to an overcrowded mall? Anyone who takes this “data” seriously really has no common sense.
We conducted the research. We sent a survey to our existing Match.com members and over 1,000 replied. All NYC residents.
Did you specifically ask what the worst neighborhood for a date was? Because if you simply asked for the best, and Astoria was the least popular response, that does not make it the worst neighborhood. This is very misleading.
I agree – this data is terrible. Astoria has tons of bars, cafe’s, shops, a park, museum. Doesn’t hold much credibility here.
I don’t live on Long Island and would never live there, but there are actually still some beautiful areas there out east, especially the North Fork which is low key, has miles of deserted beaches, vineyards, and cute small towns. There’s also Fire Island which has the only federally designated wilderness in all of New York state and is beautiful. The Hamptons and strip mall areas – that’s another story – wouldn’t go near those places with a ten foot pole, but there are still plenty of nice places on Long Island if you’re willing to go look for them,

What’s amazing is zero mention of New Jersey, Long Island and Westchester people. Many people I know who live in the city on Match are totally unwilling to date people in those places and yet there is no way to filter them out of search results. There should be a way to limit search results to just people in New York City since location and how hard or easy it is to get to where someone lives is a big factor.
ASTORIA IS AWESOMEEEEEEEE BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MATCH U SUCK. FIX THIS IMMEDIATELY!!

This is an immensely useful infographic. A lot of this can be deduced logically, but putting it visually in one place and backing it up with real statistics is sobering. The Karaoke bit was interesting. We covered this on Toot It dating magazine

I love NYC
A chain resturant is probably THE worst date option that you can choose – NY or anywhere!
They’re fine for when you’ve married your date and had 2.5 kids, but first impressions last and a chain resturant isn’t the lasting memory you want in the ‘on our first date…’ story
i love new york,and i always want to visit this city once i my life
