While the city’s jobless rate has risen to 10.6 percent, one bright spot in the data was an apparent turnaround on Wall Street.

Financial-services companies had been among the first to make sharp cuts in employment as the recession deepened. Those layoffs reverberated throughout the regional economy because the jobs paid so highly and supported so many workers in other service businesses.
