City Limits,

City Limits' editorial work has been recognized by community and national media and advocacy organizations. In 2012 and 2013 we received the Sigma Delta Chi Award from the Society of Professional Journalists for Best Investigative Story by a Local Magazine. In 2011 we received Park Center for Indepedent Media's top award for independent media and the New York Society of Professional Journalists' Deadline Club Award for Best Reporting on Communities of Color.

City Limits has seen its work make a difference in people's lives by laying the groundwork for policy changes and inspiring other organizations to conduct research on the issues we cover. While we are proud that our traditional focus is New York City, the role of New York as a national leader and the uniqueness of our approach have helped us make an impact well beyond the city's borders.
