Over 45,000 New Yorkers have participated in a public policy survey aimed at informing the nascent administration of Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat who took office on January 1. The results could bolster the mandate for many of Adams’ campaign promises and priorities and bring new ideas to City Hall.

The survey, which is open to any New Yorker and anonymous, is scheduled to close on Friday, February 11. It’s part of NYC Speaks, a privately-funded project meant to engage the public in informing the new administration's approach to critical issues facing the city. The survey's designers sought to capture a diverse set of New York voices on more than two dozen multiple-choice questions in ten topic areas ranging from public safety to housing to education, and others.

Participants are also asked a number of optional demographic questions and have the ability to provide open ended comments at the end of each subject category.

It was launched late last year as part of Adams’ mayoral transition and is being managed by HR&A Advisors, an economic development consulting firm, in coordination with Sheena Wright, the deputy mayor for strategic initiatives and former head of Adams' transition team.
