When the FBI warned that hackers can use the smart gadgets you have at home “to do a virtual drive-by of your digital life,” it was smart connected gadgets they had in mind.

Still, apartment rents have plummeted and suburban bidding wars have erupted as millions of workers have learned they can work from anywhere. “There’s been a spatial shock, whereby you don’t have to go to the city to earn money necessarily,” said Andrew Burrell, chief property economist at Capital Economics. “We think cities will change a lot.” As vaccine rollouts allow more cities to tentatively reopen offices, bars, restaurants and museums, here’s a look at what’s changing — and what’s stayed the same.
