Bringing You the News

The Downtown Alliance’s work involves everything in our neighborhood from infrastructure, to transportation, to sanitation, to public safety, to retail, to construction. Because of that, we’re always following news that affects the district.

We realized that some of our readers might be interested in following it too. So, starting today, we want to be the place to go for a rundown of what’s going on on in Lower Manhattan. While this won’t be exhaustive, it will provide you with the major stories of each day. We hope you’ll stop in for Downtown news often, and please: let us know if we miss something you’d like to see here.

To start off, we’ll give you a rundown of the entire week.
