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 & 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. Information about commuting patterns is useful for a variety of purposes that include labor market trends, housing needs, and transportation patterns across the region.
NYCEDC and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey completed the JFK Air Cargo Study to plan for new facilities, address off-airport infrastructure and access issues, and accommodate present and future operating demands. JFK Airport is an integral part of Queens and New York City’s overall economy.
