“We’re thrilled the City is taking the necessary steps to secure the dot NYC top-level domain. Giving businesses the opportunity to establish a New York City identity online is an initiative the Council has worked on since 2008, when the Committee on Technology in Government held a hearing on a resolution to support local efforts for dot NYC.

From the bodega down the block to the pizza parlor around the corner, soon every New York City business will have the opportunity to register its own dot NYC domain. We applaud the Bloomberg Administration for working with the Council on innovative new ideas like this one that will support our businesses and bring additional revenue into the City. Now New York City won’t just be the greatest city in the world — it will also be the greatest city on the World Wide Web.”
