We’ve always believed that Nextdoor has a meaningful opportunity to bring back a sense of community to the neighborhood, and our members have told us that it would improve their Nextdoor experience if they could engage with city services.
Today we are honored to announce that we are forming a partnership with New York City, one of the most innovative cities in the world.
We love working with cities and leaders like New York City and Mayor Bloomberg who understand the impact of the technology revolution. New York City is the largest and most digitally advanced city in the country, and it’s a city where neighborhood pride is a core value to residents’ identities. Mayor Bloomberg and his administration have embraced initiatives to keep New York City ahead of the curve to become a more resilient city.
More than 14,130 neighborhoods and more than 120 city governments, including three of the ten largest cities in the U.S. (San Diego, Dallas, San Jose), have adopted Nextdoor to better serve and communicate important information to residents, and we’re humbled to add the largest city in the country to that list.
New Yorkers will benefit from this partnership by receiving targeted, relevant messages immediately from the City on Nextdoor, via its NYCgov channel, on topics related to general city issues, crime and safety, and natural disasters. We look forward to keeping everyone informed as we continue to roll out this partnership with other city services.
On behalf of the entire team, we are excited to take what we have learned from our current city partnerships and members across the country and apply it to New York City to build stronger and safer neighborhoods.
