Next City is a national urban affairs magazine and non-profit organization based in Philadelphia.
First published in March 2003, the magazine promotes socially, economically and environmentally sustainable practices in urban areas across the country and examines how and why cities are changing. It covers topics such as planning, transportation, urban economies, housing, environmental issues and housing. In 2011, Next City ceased publication of its quarterly print magazine, relaunching in 2012 as a fully digital operation.
The magazine, originally named The Next American City, was founded in late 2002 by former college roommates Seth Brown and Adam Gordon. The first issue was distributed in spring of 2003, receiving favorable coverage in The New York Times, The New Yorker and The Baltimore Sun, among others. First based in New Haven, Conn., and later moving to its current hometown of Philadelphia, NAC operated as a quarterly print product for eight years. Its title was shortened to Next American City in 2008.
Beginning in 2008, editor and publisher Diana Lind expanded Next City's events series to incorporate an annual leadership summit called "Vanguard" and its new media conference "Open Cities: New Media's Role in Shaping Urban Policy."  The magazine's exposure widened beyond urban policy circles, with coverage in Monocle, PAPER magazine and elsewhere.
The final print issue of Next American City ran in the summer of 2011. In April 2012, the publication was renamed "Next City" and moved entirely online with the launch of , a subscriber-based weekly web series that publishes one new, original, long-form article every Monday. Next City also maintains a Daily blog, which hosts both original reporting and content republished from a network of partner websites based in cities around the U.S.
Next City's slogan is "Connecting cities and informing the people working to improve them."
