NYS Comptroller Report: NYC Restaurant, Retail and Recreation Sectors Still Face Uphill Recovery

According to the report recently released by the New York State Comptroller’s office, New York City’s restaurant, retail and recreation (RRR) sectors continue to lag in recovery. The continued uphill recovery is in part due to “experiencing a longer period of COVID-19 restrictions and depressed activity due to the nature of their operations and concerns over virus transmission.” As of November 2021, employment in the RRR sectors was down 169,700 jobs, accounting for 41% of total private sector jobs lost since November 2019.
