Progress Update

By activating City-owned land, making strategic investments in high-growth industries through the New York City Industrial Development Agency, and by exercising the City’s land use tools, New York City has laid the groundwork to create nearly 19,000 good-paying jobs and further diversify the economy. The City has invested in fast-growing industries of the future, like life sciences and advanced manufacturing, and spread its efforts across a range of neighborhoods, from the West Shore of Staten Island to Hunts Point in the Bronx.


This progress update is an overview of the actions the City has taken over the past year to catalyze job growth, lift more New Yorkers into the middle class, and strengthen our economy.
