New York City’s New Nightlife Mayor | by Alex Carp | NYR Daily | The New York Review of Books

This year, Ariel Palitz was appointed as the senior executive director of New York City’s Office of Nightlife, the city’s first. In New York, the idea was championed by a city councilman who saw some of his favorite bars and smaller music venues close, and others receiving little help when threatened by rising rents or trouble complying with city codes. Palitz describes herself as a liaison between the city agencies, nightlife businesses, owners, residents, employees, patrons, and entertainers. Her colleagues call her the night mayor.
