Project New York City


WikiProject New York City is a project to better organize information in articles related to New York City. This page and its subpages contain the suggestions and opinions of interested contributors; it is hoped that this project will help to focus and coordinate the efforts of all.

To help, please inquire on the discussion page and see the to-do list there.

Scope[edit]

Article assessment[edit]

Assessment links

In an effort to assess NYC articles for possible inclusion in Wikipedia:1.0, an assessment page was started for this project. Details about how to assess an article and how to request an assessment are on the /Assessment page. Information on articles is tabulated by a bot, resulting in a worklist and the table we see at the right.
