New York City's Digital Leadership
In 2011, Mayor Bloomberg introduced the City's first Digital Roadmap, a plan to make New York City the nation's number one digital city.

Led by NYC Digital, the report demonstrates the strides the City has made to date, driven by investments in infrastructure, education, open government, online engagement and technology sector support. Achievements include:
