NYC should be a little bit concerned.

Many of those buildings are financed with debt that requires high rents to pay the mortgages. The demand will still be there once the lockdowns are over, but I worry that crime is going to be a major problem. Even five years ago, you could really see and feel the cracks starting to form. The current model as a playground for the wealthy won't work if criminals are allowed to take over the way they did during the 60s-80s.

NYC is a special place and has attributes that cannot be recreated anywhere. I'm far from writing the city off, but a combination of taxes and crime could do significant damage. The world is a lot smaller and more mobile that it used to be, which could make bouncing back harder.

I hope NYC cleans itself up because I've spent a lot of time there and am quite partial to it.
