2017 was a good year for Wall Street bonuses.
According to the New York State Comptroller's office, Wall Street profits and Wall Street bonuses were up sharply in 2017.
Based on early estimates the average bonus paid to New York City finance executives jumped 17 percent to over $184,000.
Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli says that's good news for the state and Big Apple because when Wall Street does well both the city and state benefit from higher tax revenues.
