This article from the current issue of The Atlantic makes some interesting points about how NYC may hurt a lot less than other US cities and suburbs in this economic downturn. Why?...
One factor is our diverse economy: New York is not only a financial center, but also one of multiple creative industries like media, culture, design, entertainment.
Also, these lean times may spur a greener, more sustainable way of life for Americans. NYC already has many important sustainable frameworks in place: our density and public transport to name a couple.
What advantages do you find living in New York during this time of economic unrest and the consequent reshaping of America?
