March 18, 2021: Just 45% of Manhattan's roughly 1 million office workers are expected to be back in the office by this September.
A Partnership for New York City survey found that only 22% of Manhattan's large employers will require all workers to return to the office full-time. Three times as many are thinking of a mix that includes some days in the office and others at home.
An earlier Number of the Day reported a steep decline in the number of New York office leases over the past year. The cost of office space in the city has also declined.Footnotes:
