Economy In the late 1960s and early 1970s corporations began moving their headquarters to Fairfield County from Manhattan; Thomas J. Lueck of ''The New York Times'' said that the trend "permanently decentralized big business in the New York region (New York metropolitan area)." During the 1980s many buyouts and reorganizations and an economic recession lead to companies vacating much of the suburban office space in Fairfield County. In 1992 Fairfield County had the headquarters of over 25 major multinational corporations, giving it the third largest concentration of those companies in the United States after New York City and Chicago. Lueck, Thomas J. "Vacated Corporate Headquarters Scatter the Suburban Landscape." ''The New York Times''. December 7, 1992. A1, New York Edition. Retrieved on January 5, 2009.
