NEW YORK Podcast Interviews

New York represents the evolved city and nightlife culture. It is dense and diverse, with people passing on the streets and many who utilize public transportation. New York is leading the way in governance and advocacy for nightlife as an established sector with the appointment of Ariel Palitz at the Nightlife Mayor (formally the Executive Director for the Office of Nightlife) and the Nightlife Advisory Board. Advocacy groups have fought to repeal the Cabaret Law and have organized mediation talks about unannounced raids that take place in nightlife venues during business hours. New York is developing the governance and advocacy programs that other cities could benefit from implementing.
