Lower Manhattan is the current focus of committed investment when it comes to transit and transportation infrastructure. $6.4 billion in transit investments will bring about a “golden age” with Fulton Center and the World Trade Center Transportation Hub linking East and West Manhattan seamlessly amongst 350,000 square feet of retail and dining space. These transit investments have the potential to bring in 3.6 million more workers.
It is easier than ever to get to Lower Manhattan. The area is directly accessible to and from a variety of other NYC office centers. 6 ferry terminals, 12 subway lines, 2 PATH routes, 30 bus routes and 28 CitiBike stations all converge into one central hub of transit and transportation in Lower Manhattan.
Lower Manhattan is home to a mass transit network that brings in 350,000 daily and 127 million annual riders, numbers that are growing as the area transforms. Between 2006 and 2013 the labor force with direct access to Lower Manhattan grew by 314,000 people, nearly 2.5 times the growth rate elsewhere in the NYC Metro Region. This network connects job seekers from areas in Brooklyn, Jersey City and the Bronx directly to the growing major employment center that is Lower Manhattan.
