Established in January 2011, the mission of NYC Digital is to realize New York City's potential as the world's leading digital city. NYC Digital’s approach is focused on initiatives that span five core pillars: Access to Technology, Education, Open Government, Engagement, and Industry, outlined in the Road Map for the Digital City. Day to day, NYC Digital streamlines digital communication with the public and creates meaningful public-private partnerships that serve New Yorkers and support local industry. To learn more about the City’s digital accomplishments in 2011, please see the Year in Review.
