The Economy of the Middle Atlantic Subregion
By Trista L. Pollard
  

1     There are many valuable natural resources in the Middle Atlantic Subregion. In fact, it is these resources that support businesses in the area. Major industries are tourism, mining, finance, farming, fishing, transportation, and communications.
 
2     Every year, millions of people visit major cities in the Middle Atlantic Subregion. Two of these major cities are New York City, New York, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. New York City on the island of Manhattan is one of the leading entertainment and financial capitals of the world. More than eight million people live in this city. Millions more travel to the city to work and others to have fun. These people who travel there to work are commuters. They travel from nearby towns in Connecticut, New Jersey, and even Pennsylvania. Television stations in the city broadcast news and shows all over the country. Some of these shows are even broadcast worldwide. Wall Street is a huge financial center in the city. Stockbrokers, bankers, and insurance people work in this area. Philadelphia's historical museums welcome people from around the U.S. each year. You can visit Constitution Hall and see the crack in the Liberty Bell. Betsy Ross's house and Ben Franklin's post office are also located in Philadelphia.
 
3     New York and New Jersey's beaches are the place to go during hot summers. Atlantic City has a boardwalk filled with casinos and restaurants. People travel to this beach community to gamble in the casinos, stroll on the boardwalk, and swim in the ocean. They stay in the casino hotels and see their shows. Other beaches like Sandy Hook, Point Pleasant, and Long Beach Island have houses and apartments that can be rented. Long Island, New York, has many beaches. The Hamptons and Fire Island are some of its popular vacation areas. Coney Island, in Brooklyn, New York, is actually a peninsula. It has an amusement park that has been around since the late 1800s.
