nyc smallcoverAchievements

New York is a global hub of international business and commerce and is one of three "command centers" for the world economy (along with London and Tokyo).[251] The city is a major center for banking and finance, retailing, world trade, transportation, tourism, real estate, new media as well as traditional media, advertising, legal services, accountancy, insurance, theater, fashion, and the arts in the United States.

The New York metropolitan area had approximately gross metropolitan product of $1.28 trillion in 2010,[252] making it the largest regional economy in the United States and, according to IT Week, the second largest city economy in the world.[253] According to Cinco Dias, New York controlled 40% of the world's finances by the end of 2008, making it the largest financial center in the world.[254][255][256]

New York City has been ranked first among 120 cities across the globe in attracting capital, businesses, and tourists.[258]

Many major corporations are headquartered in New York City, including 45 Fortune 500 companies.[259] New York is also unique among American cities for its large number of foreign corporations. One out of ten private sector jobs in the city is with a foreign company.[260] Manhattan had 353.7 million square feet (32,860,000 m²) of office space in 2001.[261] Midtown Manhattan is the largest central business district in the United States. Lower Manhattan is the third largest central business district in the United States and is home to The New York Stock Exchange, located on Wall Street, and the NASDAQ, representing the world's first and second largest stock exchanges, respectively, when measured by average daily trading volume and overall market capitalization.[262] Financial services account for more than 35% of the city's employment income.[263]

Real estate is a major force in the city's economy, as the total value of all New York City property was $802.4 billion in 2006.[264] The Time Warner Center is the property with the highest-listed market value in the city, at $1.1 billion in 2006.[264] New York City is home to some of the nation's—and the world's—most valuable real estate. 450 Park Avenue was sold on July 2, 2007 for $510 million, about $1,589 per square foot ($17,104/m²), breaking the barely month-old record for an American office building of $1,476 per square foot ($15,887/m²) set in the June 2007 sale of 660 Madison Avenue.[265]

The city's television and film industry is the second largest in the country after Hollywood.[266] Creative industries such as new media, advertising, fashion, design and architecture account for a growing share of employment, with New York City possessing a strong competitive advantage in these industries.[267]
