NEW YORK — On Wall Street, profits are down and the number of workers is shrinking.

Cash bonuses paid to Wall Street employees in New York City rose 15 percent on average last year, to $164,530, according to a report on Wednesday from Thomas P. DiNapoli, the state comptroller. That was the biggest average bonus since 2007, the year before the financial crisis struck.
