“Four years ago, Comptroller DiNapoli’s economic snapshot of Brooklyn showcased the incredible economic output and opportunity we created in the preceding decade, as well as the potential we had to expand that prosperity to every corner of our borough and ensure sustainable growth for our future. Today, I’m pleased that his updated analysis shows that the County of Kings continues to outpace the nation with our thriving job market, burgeoning tech sector, and a cultural landscape that is the envy of the world, attracting an estimated 15 million visitors every year. I’m proud of the efforts our administration has taken to increase investment in our borough, develop emerging industries, and connect more Brooklynites to college and career success. We are the economic engine that drives New York City, New York State, and indeed America.
“While we have done a lot to come back from the Great Recession, we have much more to do, particularly in areas such as communities in central and eastern Brooklyn to combat the deep roots of inequality and poverty. We can’t build up buildings without building up the people who are the foundation of everything that matters to our borough’s future. Our mission is to create much-needed affordable housing, rebuild our public transit network, provide support for our immigrant small businesses, and strengthen our tech pipeline that trains today’s residents for tomorrow’s jobs. I hope the next snapshot of Brooklyn’s economy illustrates true progress in these efforts.”
