Future Of New York City Briefing: Policing And Public Safety
New York City is about to get its first new mayor in over a decade. How can the city best protect the remarkable gains in public safety made over the last two decades? What must be done to improve the city’s underperforming public schools and expand educational options for families? How can the city’s coming budget crunch be avoided and its economic future be secured?
The Manhattan Institute recently surveyed New Yorkers to find out which issues the public is most concerned about in advance of November’s important election. Join us for three briefings derived from City Journal’s special June issue, After Bloomberg: An Agenda for New York. The issue offers a policy blueprint for securing a vibrant tomorrow for the city.
Each briefing, featuring leading policy thinkers affiliated with City Journal, will focus on a key challenge facing Gotham’s next mayor. Join us for the first briefing on Policing and Public Safety:
