Since 2003 I have provided a chart that appears once a month in the Economic Spotlight section of Crain’s New York Business magazine. Here is this month’s chart appearing in the current issue of Crain’s New York Business .
Go here for a complete archive of all my Crains’s New York Economic Spotlight charts.  They are organized by year.
As an added bonus (to me, actually, ’cause I am in it), there is an interesting article in Crain’s on how NYC currently has the edge over the outlying suburbs .
