CUR Long Island Maps in Long Island Business News
Long Island Business News, 3.9.15
Long Island’s growth is stunted by three interconnected factors: limited housing options; failure to replace defense and manufacturing industries with well-paying jobs; and a high property tax burden. All three combine to hinder Long Island’s economic competitiveness. The history of these and other socioeconomic trends on Long Island over the last 40 years can be explored in a series of interactive maps accompanying the report, created by the Center for Urban Research at the City University of New York Graduate Center. The maps, available free at LongIslandIndexMaps.org, illuminate the trajectory that we’re on and why we must change.
