A new, digital Green Book for NYC
May 11th, 2012

NYC Green Book

New York City’s Green Book has gone digital.

The city announced today an updated online edition of its widely used directory of city, state and county agencies.

Its the first time the directory has been made available as a digital application, viewable from any modern-day browser.

Created in 1918, the book has a storied history, but hasnt been published since 2008. Dog-eared copies of older editions of the book still sit on the desks of researchers, journalists and policymakers, even though many of the phone numbers are outdated and agency heads have long since changed.

The new edition will still be available in print, available exclusively from CityStore in late June.

Continuing with the green theme of the directory, the new edition sports the citys environmentally conscientious mascot Birdie, holding a compact fluorescent light bulb and wearing a Statue of Liberty crown.

The online directory is searchable and will be updated on an ongoing basis. The new directory is a project of the citys Department of Citywide Administrative Services.
