New York City Affairs Committee

The New York City Affairs Committee focuses on legal issues of particular relevance to New York City and its government. Our work covers areas ranging from legislative and other political action at City Hall, to real estate development, to legal and policy matters at the state level that have a direct effect on New York City. In the upcoming year, we also will be giving special focus to the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
