In this paper, Eugene Spruck, a Weissman Center Fellow who served as the Chief Economist of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for more than a decade, reviews trade data for the U.S. as a whole and for the NY Customs District for the first six months of 2010 showing a significant rebound compared to the same period in 2009. Even as trade is recovering, levels remain below the 2008 6-month peak the paper concludes.
