Lower Manhattan population more than doubles since 9/11, State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli report says | Crain’s New York Business

State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli talks up resurgence of neighborhood, but role of government subsidies unclear

The number of residents and new apartments in lower Manhattan has skyrocketed since 2000, while the number of jobs remains below pre-9/11 levels, according to a report Tuesday.

The report, released by state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, painted lower Manhattan as a burgeoning residential neighborhood that is far less reliant on the financial sector years after the 9/11 terror attacks. In 2014, there were nearly 50,000 people living in the area, for example, more than double the population in 2000. That influx coincided with a similar increase in housing units, which numbered 30,000 in 2015.
