New Yorkers born today will live about three years longer than those born in 2001, Mayor Bloomberg said on Tuesday.

The life expectancy for Gotham-born individuals rose from 77.9 to 80.9, according to the most recent data from the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, collected between 2001 and 2010. These averages out- pace the national numbers, which grew only 1.8 years from 76.9 to 78.7.
