Jackson Heights has outperformed other New York City neighborhoods economically thanks to its large immigrant population, according to a new report released today.

Since the end of the 2009 recession, Jackson Heights has seen an influx of local businesses and employment and the area’s large, vibrant immigrant community is the driving force, according to a report by New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli.

The Comptroller’s report is an economic snapshot of the greater Jackson Heights area, including Jackson Heights, East Elmhurst and North Corona.
