Do you have any ideas on what could make New York City nightlife even better? The city’s Office of Nightlife wants to hear your thoughts.

 

The Office of Nightlife, which is part of the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, announced on Monday a schedule of events throughout the five boroughs where residents can share comments, concerns and ideas for improving New York City nightlife.

 

Ariel Palitz, senior executive director of the Office of Nightlife (a.k.a. the city’s first Nightlife Mayor), will lead the listening sessions.

 

“New York nightlife is a large part of who we are, and a big part of why people want to live, visit, and play here,” Palitz said in a statement. “Nightlife is about being social, coming together, making a living and celebrating life. But it also comes with real challenges. These listening sessions are the perfect opportunity to hear from all New Yorkers, both inside and outside of the industry to ensure that nightlife and New York works for everyone, 24/7.”

 

New York City nightlife is crucial to the city’s economy, officials say, so business owners are especially encouraged to participate, along with residents, nightlife patrons, employees and artists.
