REBNY Retail Reports

Fall 2001 Retail Report

November 18, 2001

The third REBNY Retail Report is our first such survey to provide market comparisons over a twelve-month period. This biannual look at the stores market shows that prime shopping areas have thrived despite the economy’s slowdown and unprecedented disruptions following the terrorist attacks. Less prominent districts, though, have proven more vulnerable to the past year’s turmoil. Even in difficult times, though, our most established shopping corridors remain destinations for customers from all over the city, region, nation and the rest of world.
