Private sector jobs dip in Manhattan rise in Brooklyn: Report
The Big Apple's jobs are crossing over to the east river, a study found.
The Center for an Urban Future's survey that was released Thursday said Manhattan accounted for 60.50% of all private sector jobs in the city last year, a record low and a drop of more than 5% since 1982.
The nonprofit group said the decrease was not alarming because the outer boroughs saw an increase in jobs in the last decade. Private sector jobs saw the most increase in Brooklyn which accounted for 15.06 % of the city's jobs last year, compared to 13.35% in 2000.
The mayor constantly touts downtown Brooklyn as a new job hot spot for the city's growing tech industry.
