Paladino Dismisses Manhattan and Brooklyn
The New York State Republican candidate for Governor has made it know that he doesn’t care much for New York City. Or rather, he doesn’t like Brooklyn or Manhattan.
Well, besides traffic jams and “liberal elitists,” Brooklyn and Manhattan also have:
• One in five of all New York State residents.
• One-fourth of all state income.
• Over one fourth of all businesses in New York State.
• One in three jobs in the state.
Dismissing liberal Manhattan and Brooklyn may make political sense for a Tea Partier, but doesn’t make much economic sense for the state.
