NYC Office of Citywide Event Coordination and Management

Welcome to CECM

From your street’s block party to the annual nationwide broadcast of New Year’s Eve Ball Drop, New York City is the backdrop for countless special events, cultural activities, community events and film shoots. To assist with these activities, the Mayor’s Office of Citywide Event Coordination and Management’s (CECM) provides you with resources regarding the necessary applications and licenses to produce an event in NYC. You can visit our event permitting page to identify the right permit for your event. You can also find out about the nearest street closures for today or the upcoming week to better plan your route.

If you have any questions or comments regarding our services, please do not hesitate to contact us.
