The Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent economic crisis have sent New York City—not to mention the country at large—into a recession, put millions out of work, and crippled public services, inviting questions about the city’s future. But Gotham will bounce back—and the Manhattan Institute (MI), via its New York City: Reborn initiative, is here to help spark its renaissance.

New York City: Reborn is a wide-ranging Manhattan Institute project that will encompass research, journalism, and event programming. The institute, through this initiative, convenes business, civic, and academic leaders from around the city with MI scholars to discuss key issues—including public transit, housing, the city budget, infrastructure, education, public safety, and small-business competitiveness. Participants join issue-specific working groups, led by MI scholars, to develop innovative policy ideas and draft a series of issue briefs. This research will ultimately form a comprehensive agenda for the city’s recovery and a policy blueprint for its future leaders.

Post-coronavirus, the Manhattan Institute envisions a growing New York City with a thriving economy, healthy finances, accessible housing, effective infrastructure, flourishing education, safe streets, and increasing competitiveness. New York City: Reborn will help turn that vision into reality.
