New York City's Economy Before and after September 11

7 Pages Posted: 4 Apr 2005

Abstract

An analysis of employment and income trends suggests that the economic impact of the September 11 attack on New York City was somewhat less severe than originally thought. The attack created sizable job and income losses, but the city's current downturn appears to stem largely from other, cyclical factors - namely, the national economy and the financial markets.
