The Business Environment in 10013 (Tribeca)
The total number of business establishments in 10013 have been averaging a yearly growth rate of about -0.77% annually over the past year (as reported by US Census data); this constitutes a decline. In absolute terms, the estimated number of business establishments in the 10013 zip code was reported to stand at 5,171 as of 2017. Interestingly, though, the decline in establishment is NOT coupled with a drop in employee count; employee count in the zip code is actually growing by about 2.99% annually. A drop in establishment count coupled with an increase in total employees suggests the potential for some kind of industry consolidation to have occurred. The decline in establishments and the rise in employees is met with a rise in average salary, as salaries have been rising by about 2.26% annually. Falling business establishment count, coupled with rising employee and salary count, may suggest mature industries are finding their home in 10013.
