45 Stories, 45 Years

Our inaugural issue, published in 1976, launched in the midst of New York City’s fiscal crisis, and was created to foster “more communication within and among people and organizations in the movement to save and improve housing,” according to a note from the editors at the time. While much has changed since, New York City is still facing many of the same challenges — in affordable housing and a looming fiscal crisis.

Help us build a more equitable city. Make a donation of $200+ by September 30, and you’ll receive our limited-edition book: 45 Stories, 45 Years: City Limits’ History of Covering NYC, offering a collection of historical news and photos of our city coverage since 1976.
