Significant issues that arose in the Northeast

The 1990's banking problems

They were a strong economical region before the 1990's when the construction businesses began to grow. But, in the 1990's the construction business began to drop and so did the real estate business due to the drop of construction. The Northeast region relied too much on their income for the real estate, causing later on during the rapid decline in the real estate business to severely damage their economy.
