New York City Is Establishing an Office to Support Arts Groups

The City of New York is opening an office to "aggressively pitch New York City around the world as the nation's art and cultural capital by helping nonprofit organizations, especially those in the arts, cope with the high costs that threaten their survival." The new office represents a recognition that skyrocketing rents have made it much harder for smaller arts groups to flourish and help groups navigate the real-estate market, obtain technical advice and attract financing.
