Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen leads the administration’s efforts to grow and diversify New York City’s economy, invest in emerging industries across the 5 boroughs, and build a new generation of affordable housing.

On her watch, the City has undertaken the biggest affordable housing plan in the nation’s history, and is building more new affordable homes than it has under any previous administration.

The Deputy Mayor has made it a citywide priority to secure and expand modern space for hi-tech manufacturing and innovation firms, making unprecedented investments to make New York City more competitive.

She has spearheaded the administration’s efforts to expand infrastructure from CitiBikes, to ferries, to broadband so as to keep New York City competitive.

Coming from the private sector, she has applied a career of experience to strike deals that protect the public sector and spur economic growth, and to spread the city’s prosperity to neighborhoods that have historically been left behind.

She is a born and raised New Yorker, and she has built a deserved reputation as one of the toughest, savviest people in the business—but also someone who is truly mission-driven and cares deeply about the people she serves.
