Upon visiting, you cannot help but notice NYC's vibrant economy. It is layered and, from looks on the surface, stable.
As one of our tour guides put it, NYC's leading industries are FIRE: Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate.
As a guess, having done no prior research, I would add Healthcare, Media Production, Entertainment, Fashion, and Tourism to this list.
NYC daily reaps the benefits of a diverse local economy.
As a critical component of the Big Apple's development, the City's infrastructure must also be noted.
NYC's robust transportation systems enable growth: the Brooklyn Bridge, the Washington Bridge, the Queensboro Bridge, the RFK Airport, the LaGuardia Airport, the Hudson River, the East River, the New York City Subway, and the nonstop work of road repairs throughout the City.
Combined, these infrastructure assets and investments contribute to an environment conducive for commerce on a macro level.
I am sure I sound like a cheerleader for NYC, but this is the result of a great experience in an incredible place.
My applause is to everyone actively involved in NYC's economic development and urban planning efforts- the body of work is much admired.
