A new poll from the Siena College Research Institute shows New Yorkers remain very concerned  over the threat posed by the coronavirus. The survey examined several aspects related to the pandemic from dining at restaurants to how people expect the cornavirus to spread again this fall. The most telling numbers, however, regard schools. Institute Director Don Levy tells WBFO that 62% of those surveyed say completely opening schools is too risky.

A newly-released Siena poll of more than 770 New Yorkers suggests most folks want to ensure all New Yorkers are counted in the 2020 US Census. But they are divided over one potential question that could get asked: are you a US citizen?

With less than two weeks to go until Christmas, holiday shopping season is in full effect.

Personal attachments---friends, family, spiritual matters--boosted the overall numbers in a survey measuring New Yorkers' life satisfaction. Don Levy, director of the Siena College Research Institute, calls the attachments a "bubble" which provides relief from concerns over politics, finances and global affairs. Seventy percent are less than satsified on the direction the world is going.
