About CityPragmatist

CityPragmatist.com is a forum for discussing New York City government, the city charter, community boards, what’s going on at selected city agencies, and how City Hall, the economy, land use, transportation, and public schools affect the middle class and the city’s viability. We try to look at connections and how things really work behind the scenes.

If you have something to say about these things, we invite you to write to us. If your ideas cast more light than heat, we’ll publish them.

CityPragmatist.com is edited by Alvin M. Berk, former chairman of Brooklyn Community Board 14 (Flatbush-Midwood) and former Assistant Professor at the SUNY Downstate School of Public Health.
