This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of New York City's governments and politics. We will examine the changing role of the mayor and other elected officials, organization of the municipal government, and the way in which state and regional governments affect public services and city policies. The course will explore the way in which political and economic forces affect public policies with an emphasis on land use planning and physical development, mayoral control of public schools, economic development, the redevelopment of lower Manhattan, congestion pricing, and waterfront development.
