City Limits celebrates it’s 46th anniversary this year, and marked the milestone at our annual fundraiser gala last month, where honoring several prominent New Yorkers. If you missed the festivities, you can still support the cause this Giving Tuesday.
The move reflects the organization’s expansion of housing and homelessness coverage at this pivotal moment for New York, as the city emerges from the pandemic amidst a housing affordability crisis and a rising shelter population.
Reporter David Brand’s story on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on homeless New Yorkers with health needs earned the Merit Award for Feature News Reporting from the Silurian Press Club, part of the storied organization’s annual Excellence in Journalism Awards.
In the summer of 1989, City Limits asked the candidates running for mayor of New York—including Ed Koch and David Dinkins—to explain their plans and policies on homelessness, housing and development. Read what they had to say at the time (except for Rudy Giuliani, who didn’t respond).
Flashback Friday is a weekly series highlighting a story from the vast archives of City Limits’ reporting as we celebrate our 45th anniversary this year.
El evento marcará el lanzamiento del Salón de la Fama de City Limits, que honrará a cuatro líderes comunitarios de Nueva York por sus contribuciones a la justicia, los medios de comunicación, la vivienda y el desarrollo económico. Podrá participar en el evento de forma presencial o virtual el próximo 18 de noviembre.
The event, to take place with both in-person and virtual attendance options on Nov. 18, will also honor four New York community leaders for their contributions to justice, media, housing, and economic development.
After 14 years here, I’m heading into a new career. And City Limits is moving into an exciting new era.
