New York's decline was never really economic was it? It still housed almost every major financial institution and tons of head offices even at the height of its social dysfunction.

I imagine 80s New York extrapolated to today would just look a lot more dystopian, with the ultra rich living and working far above the poor people as opposed to living above the regular old rich people that inhabit it today.
