NYC’s Industrial Market Poised to Weather the Coronavirus Storm

As the last few weeks have made clear, it’s still too early to make accurate forecasts in the face of the evolving Covid-19 pandemic. However, there is good reason to believe that the city’s industrial sector is uniquely positioned to weather the coronavirus disruption. Many industrial and warehousing businesses enjoy ‘essential services’ status and are allowed to operate in spite of Governor Cuomo’s recent business shutdown. These include warehousing, distribution, logistics and fulfillment, the manufacture of food, medical and other ‘essential’ goods, telecommunications and data centers, auto repair, select construction sites and construction supply, skilled trades including electricians and plumbers, business storage, mail and shipping services, trash, recycling  and building repair, maintenance, security and disinfection services.
