Municipal Art Society of New York

The Municipal Art Society of New York (MAS) lifts up the voices of the people in the debates that shape New York’s built environment and leads the way toward a more livable city from sidewalk to skyline. MAS envisions a future in which all New Yorkers share in the richness of city life—where growth is balanced, character endures, and a resilient future is secured. Our advocacy focuses on the following priorities:

  • Holding the City and developers accountable to the law
  • Protecting light and air as a priority for public health and sustainability
  • Leveling the playing field for communities in the land use process
  • Fixing the broken environmental review process
  • Promoting New York City's unique sense of place
