Thanks to all of you who helped make our 46 th Anniversary Gala a special night for City Limits, and for New York City. Thank you especially to our Hall of Fame Honorees who exemplify and uphold the values of City Limits every day in their work to create a more just and equitable city.
We are close to reaching our anniversary funding goal! Please support our work with a donation today. Thanks to a limited time matching grant from the NewsMatch national fund, your gift up to $1,000 will be doubled!
Thank you for your support, we can’t do this work without you. Congratulations to our honorees on their outstanding work on behalf of all New Yorkers.
Highlights from City Limits 2022 Hall of Fame Honorees:
“In a moment when truth is relative, in a moment, when we get our news in pithy sound bites that are much better at saying what doesn't work, rather than talking about what works, that leave all nuance out of the conversation -- City Limits is a place that we can still go to, to learn and to understand what it really takes to make a difference. That's why I'm proud to be here.”
- Shaun Donovan, Senior Fellow, Ford Foundation
“New Yorkers have elected a new mayor who must make difficult political decisions, restore not only basic services, but the people's faith that government can get things done. And he‘ll have to demonstrate a deep understanding of how to manage in the public interest. He’ll have to engage every community and every neighborhood organization to succeed. And extraordinary journalists, like those at City Limits, will have to help the public to hold the mayor and all our elected officials accountable.”
- Ester Fuchs, Dir. of Urban & Social Policy, Columbia University
“You cannot leave it up to the candidate, you cannot leave it up to the political clubs. You cannot leave it up to the elections that pop up every other year. We've got to do it all the time. And we've got to do it with groups like City Limits that help keep the pipeline going, keep the information flowing, and make sure that we get to a better city.”
- Errol Louis, Host, “Inside City Hall”, Spectrum News NY1
“Because if it wasn't for living in central Flatbush, in the heart of the Caribbean and Puerto Rican community, in one of the worst buildings, where everybody decided to organize all these black and brown families, I would not realize that we can control our own fate. And so I thank my parents for that. I think my parents were doing that rent strike, I thank them. Because when I tell you what people do, to break down the spirit of the working class, to not organize to fight for the rights that our littlest is talking about, oh, I got to see that at 10 years of age. And so I learned early on, and especially from my family, that if it's not there, you got to make it there.”
- Lisette Nieves, President, Fund for the City of New York
“The research, policy, advocacy and independent reporting that City Limits does every day makes New York a better place. And it's critical that we have outlets like City Limits, continuing to invest in deep analysis and thought leadership.”
- Maggie Brunn, recipient Institutional Honoree, A&E Real Estate
