Can America’s Cities Make a Post-Pandemic Comeback?

Before Covid hit America in January 2020, only 5% of the US workforce worked remotely all the time. However, within months of the pandemic hit, almost every American who could work from home was doing so. Today, remote work is a white-collar norm.

“If you look at the US as a whole,” says Edward Glaeser, chair of Harvard’s economics department, office attendance “is down about 19% from pre-pandemic levels.” This average hides some amazing differences between major cities. While Houston is right in the middle at 19% and Los Angeles “looks pretty good” at 21%, New York and Boston are each down 32%.
