Introduction
Capital New York is a publication for and about the people and institutions that shape New York, delivering fast, original, essential analysis and reporting on city and state politics and the media industry. 

The three-year-old news publication relaunched in December 2013, after being acquired by POLITICO publisher Robert Albritton earlier in the year. With more journalists, enhanced coverage, must-read newsletters and a redesigned website, the new and improved Capital embodies the same combination of style and hard-hitting journalism that has made POLITICO a must-read among the country's most influential people.
