Subway commuting data can offer clues to the residential and commercial use of space in the city which can help to inform planning decisions that will support economic and residential growth development in new and emerging areas. We set out to explore the New York MTA’s turnstile data.
This month’s Economic Snapshot looks at commuting trends in New York City. According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, around half of NYC residents commute to a job outside their borough of residence.
NYCEDC is uniting community stakeholders, business and property owners, and public agencies around a shared vision and implementation strategy that transforms public space and improves walkability around this important transit hub.
The Census Bureau recently released new journey-to-work data that provide new insight into where New York City residents work and New York City workers live.
