The City Record is the official journal of New York City.[1][2] It is published each weekday (except legal holidays) and contains legal notices produced by city agencies, including notices of proposed and adopted rules, procurement solicitations and awards, upcoming public hearings and meetings, public auctions and property dispositions, and selected court decisions.[3] The existence of the Record is not well known.[4]

The codified local laws of NYC are contained in the New York City Administrative Code,[5][6] and the regulations promulgated by city agencies are compiled in the Rules of the City of New York.[7] Historical issues of The City Record have been digitized by The City Record Project at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, and contain searchable pdfs of the issues from the founding of the publication in 1873-1947. This is a rich historical source, that records every payment and contract of the city, election returns, periodic reports of city agencies, and much more.

As for the move to 66 John Street, residents said they only learned of it in a meeting that addressed concerns about 71 Thomas Street. But the city responded that it held two public hearings about the John Street site, announced in the City Record, the official government journal. When a community board member asked the overcapacity crowd on Wednesday how many had heard of the City Record, not one hand went up.
