Wanted to share a comment from this post:
My nightmare is that the job losses on Wall Street turn out to have no effect on New York, since the city has basically turned into a place for the super rich to go and live, not as a place to have careers. That is what Venice turned into during the 18th century. Then the city will be culturally dead, with no recovery, and it will still be unaffordable.
