New York City leverages smart technologies to achieve the goals set forth in Mayor de Blasio’s ambitious Plan for One NYC. Equity is an explicit guiding principle in our work—a lens through which we view all of our planning, policymaking, and governing.

City Programs

  • OneNYC is a comprehensive plan for a sustainable and resilient city for all New Yorkers that addresses the profound social, economic, and environmental challenges ahead.

  • Neighborhood Innovation Labs bring together communities, government, educators, and technologists to research, develop and demonstrate innovative solutions to improve quality of life and enhance city services.

  • A collection of ten case studies that demonstrate the diversity of ways that connected technologies can help improve government services and better the lives of all New Yorkers and communities across the five boroughs.

  • NYCx works with civic, industry and tech experts to develop technologies that benefit all New Yorkers. Our goals are to grow job opportunities for New Yorkers, test new ideas with the public and make NYC the place to launch tech for the public. Our Challenge program invites entrepreneurs, technologists, and tech professionals to participate in open competitions. Each Challenge aims to solve a specific problem of urban life and move New York City towards the principles laid out in Mayor de Blasio’s OneNYC plan: growth, equity, sustainability, and resilience.
