Gotham Gazette

The Place for New York Policy and politics

Gotham Gazette Needs Your Support. Give Today.

Gotham Gazette needs your help today. If you believe in Gotham Gazette because it is an essential nonpartisan, nonprofit local news publication that covers New York politics and policy like no one else, please give what you can to ensure we can keep doing what we do.

Our in-depth reporting is key to understanding New York public policy debates, local political races throughout the five boroughs, and what's really happening in city and state government.

Gotham Gazette is more important than ever given the massive recent changes in city government, important state elections happening in 2023, and ongoing pandemic recovery challenges facing New York — and the fact that local news has been declining in recent years. Help keep Gotham Gazette going throughout 2023 with a tax-deductible donation to Citizens Union Foundation today.

While the pandemic decimated our usual fundraising, so far the support of our readers helped us survive and keep our small but mighty team in place. As you've seen, we have continued with coverage of issues, hearings, and races that you can't find elsewhere, along with regularly breaking important news and providing the most in-depth coverage of many topics.

But to keep going we need your help

Please give what you can today and encourage others to do the same. We appreciate your support!
