“executiv e summary

New York City is one of the world’s leading digital metropolises.

As Part I: State of the Digital City illustrates, New York City government

engages over 25 million people a year through more than 200

digital channels including nyc.gov, mobile applications, and social

media. As a pioneer in Open Government, New York City government

has unlocked thousands of public records, enabling technologists

to build tools that help New Yorkers everyday, from finding

parking spaces to listening to audio tours of Central Park. One of

the nation’s most connected municipalities, New York City’s digital

sector growth propelled it to rank second in venture capital funding

last year. By every digital index, the City of New York is thriving.

But we can do more. Road Map for the Digital City outlines a path

to build on New York City’s successes and establish it as the world’s

top-ranked Digital City, based on indices of Internet access, Open

Government, citizen engagement, and digital industry growth.

Part II: Digital Input is informed by 90 days of research and over

4,000 points of engagement from residents, City employees, and

technologists who shared insights and ideas”
