By JANET SANDERS New York City’s transformation from a sprawling city of factories to a bustling city of offices and retail is a tale of two cities.
As the first wave of residents arrived, the city’s population exploded.
Now, with new office space filling up and new residents pouring into the city, the transition is making it harder to see the city in the same old, white-collar-friendly light it once had.
The city’s once-thriving downtowns are being squeezed, while some neighborhoods, such as Chinatown, are struggling to retain their vibrant character.
So what can the city do to make sure its transformation is a positive one?
Here are a few things to think about: 1.
Build more apartments The biggest issue with many of New York’s most desirable neighborhoods is that they have become increasingly expensive.
The median rent in the city is $1,800, according to real estate site Trulia.
That’s $2,000 more than the median rent for an average New York apartment.
That means apartments are becoming more expensive to rent in places like Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx, which has the highest concentration of people living there.
Improve the transit system The city has an aging, underfunded subway system, which is expected to run out of funding in 2020.
If the city can save money and expand the subway network, the problem won’t go away.
New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo has said he would like to extend the line to New Jersey, and if he does, he’s already proposing to extend it to the Bronx.
The subway extension would be one of the first of its kind in the world, and would bring more people to the city.
Create more jobs The city needs more jobs.
More than a third of New Yorkers are employed part-time or part-year, according the Census Bureau, and only a third are employed full-time.
As more people move into the cities, demand for work is growing, and people are leaving their homes.
In 2016, the median household income in the New York metropolitan area was $52,800.
If you factor in the cost of living, that’s $21,000 above the national median.
If people were able to work full- or part -time, the average New Yorker would be earning $43,800 a year.
That would be more than $100,000 less than the national average.
But if people could work full time, they would earn $51,800 annually.
It’s a good thing, then, that there are enough people willing to work part- or full- time to fill the demand.
That could help reduce inequality.
Give New Yorkers more choice in how they live The city is known for its dense urban cores.
However, the density of the city has decreased dramatically over the last two decades, and many of the areas where the density has increased are areas where people have moved to for good reasons.
Some of these places include Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island, where large parts of the population have been pushed to suburbs.
These suburbs have become a hotbed for drug abuse and crime.
These areas, like Brooklyn and Queens, have become the new suburbs for many people.
They have become destinations for new immigrants.
If New York is to continue its success as a global city, it must give more people the opportunity to live where they want and make the city their own.
Reduce pollution New York already has some of the best air quality in the country, thanks to the use of nitrogen oxides in residential buildings, and it should be a top priority for any city trying to tackle climate change.
However , the pollution levels are a problem for many residents in New York.
That is why the city needs to invest in new infrastructure.
It needs to provide better public transportation, for example, and provide cleaner water to all areas of the country.
Invest in infrastructure to make it more resilient and efficient As the population continues to grow, the amount of electricity that’s generated in New Yorks grid will also continue to grow.
The New York Power Authority (NYPA) is already the largest utility in the nation, and its recent merger with New Jersey’s PennEast has given the utility greater financial flexibility to increase energy efficiency.
New Yorkers also need to have more access to clean drinking water.
In 2018, the state of New Jersey introduced a law that will provide residents with up to 50 percent of their water needs from municipal water sources, such a as tap water or bottled water.
That will make it easier for residents to save money on their water bills, and will reduce the amount they have to pay for their water.
Make it easier to retire New York also needs to make the transition from an expensive, old-fashioned, and inefficient pension system to a more modern, flexible system that works for everyone.
In 2019, New York lawmakers passed a bill that will make New York the first state to allow people
