- Per Capita Income:
The Tri-State Region, commonly referred to as the greater New York (City) area, is made up of three states: New York (NY), New Jersey (NJ) and Connecticut (CT). Geographically and economically, the Tri-State encompasses areas within a commutable distance of Manhattan (by car, bus or train), or the coverage area of the broadcast television stations that operate from New York City. With the inclusion of Manhattan in New York, Stamford and Hartford in Connecticut, and Jersey City in New Jersey, the Tri-state Region is home to the largest and most-recognized collection of high-rise office real estate, and a seat to the bulk of banking and financial institutions in the U.S. In the same manner, the inclusion of Fairfield County in southwestern CT, Manhattan, Westchester and Long Island in NY, and a number of counties in northern NJ, cumulatively make the Tri-state Region one of the most expensive residential real estate markets in the nation.
