This year, the Center for New York City Law is celebrating thirty years of CityLaw Breakfasts! We appreciate everyone who has taken the time to join us for our programming over the years and look forward to many more in the future!

On February 15, 2024, Brad Lander, Comptroller of the City of New York, spoke at the 190th CityLaw Breakfast on “A Vision for a More Thriving, Equitable, and Resilient City.” Professor Ross Sandler, Director of the Center for New York City Law provided opening remarks. Dean and President of New York Law School Anthony W. Crowell also provided remarks.  The event was sponsored by ConEdison, Verizon, and Greenberg Traurig LLP.

Comptroller Lander discussed the challenges of responsibly managing a city that has as much to offer as New York City. He talked about how “capable, compassionate government” is required to manage and address complex issues including the housing crisis, infrastructure investments, the placement of migrants and work authorizations, and how the city handles and assists New Yorkers experiencing severe mental illness and homelessness. Comptroller Lander also discussed capital project management reform, and the use of alternative delivery methods to save billions of dollars and months or years on project timelines. He warned that cuts to services to save money now can hurt the city long term by making it a less desirable place to live.
