Simple question.

As a Structural Engineer, I am interested in how the general market is going in and around NYC. I would like to know about the general health and activity of the building market.

When I look at most of the threads, they seem to focus on individual projects or neighborhoods.

Are there any topics on this? If so, where? (In more of an analytical form, not "the economy sucks" general posting). If not, where could I ask this? (Skyscrapers? Condos? ? )

TIA!

Try http://ny.curbed.com/tags/jonathan-miller - It's mainly about sales but there's posts about inventory as well. Worth a look!

The AIA issues a semi-annual forecast on construction activity (commercial only).

There's also the monthly Architecture Billings Index (ABI), a leading economic indicator.
