Join us in celebrating more than 40 years of independent, non-profit, investigative reporting that has engaged and informed a generation of community leaders, public officials, advocates, activists, readers and journalists.

We are proud to honor Elizabeth Cooke Levy, Richard Buery, and Tom Robbins, three distinguished New Yorkers who embody City Limits values, and reflect the city we love.
