We have to keep manufacturing and all the support businesses in Manhattan. This city, this country cannot afford to just toss out and ghetto- ize buisnesses that are providing REAL JOBS that support REAL & SKILLED workers. We cannot afford to put all our eggs into the unrealistic and now proven delusory fantasy that is Wall Street & the so called "market". Whose market? Unlike Shakespeare, in this case, "thinking" be it on paper or via some quant's computer model, doesn't make it so.
We need to keep these skilled and specialty jobs in Manhattan. We need to keep these skilled jobs in this country, period.
Because, no matter what many people may think, to be able to sew and make clothing is a skill not to be taken lightly. Think about it, it is one of the skills, that given an apocalyptic situation would be needed right up there with food and building shelter.
