The most-read Gotham Gazette reporting of 2022 covers a wide variety of important topics in New York politics and policy.

And while the list below of the 20 most-read Gotham Gazette stories of 2022 is biased against some of our excellent December reporting, which has had less time to accumulate readership, it is still very much reflective of the in-depth local journalism Gotham Gazette is proud to provide New Yorkers. Especially so during another very important election year and the first year in the tenure of a new Mayor and new City Council Speaker.

Not included on this list are some of the articles that had the most readership but are more election guides than reported articles, or other election-focused coverage that was widely read like our detailed look at Lee Zeldin’s and Kathy Hochul's campaign platforms; examination of what the polls were saying about the Governor’s race as the general election came down the home stretch; discussion of the arguments for and against the $4.2 billion environmental bond act that was on the general election ballot; rundowns of the races to watch in the primary and general elections; and more.
