Social Explorer’s Andrew Beveridge on Manhattan’s Shrinking Population by Sydney Beveridge
For the first time this decade, Manhattan is shrinking. In “Manhattan Population Dropped in 2009, Census Says,” the New York Times’ Sam Roberts details the latest shifts in New York City’s population, as shown by the 2009 American Community Survey.
The article states, “The population of Manhattan, which had grown by nearly 90,000 since 2000, dropped by about 2,500, according to the estimate, which is based on calculations as of July 1, 2009.”
Andrew Beveridge comments on the findings and data, which was compiled by Social Explorer for the New York Times, “Obviously the financial sector is hurting and not drawing the people in that it used to.”
