Hear From Our Interns


As a Land Use intern, I contributed to projects across the five boroughs, gaining the technical skills and knowledge to begin my career as an urban planner in NYC!

Maisie Jarrell

I was given real responsibilities, such as analyzing neighborhood vulnerability data, creating research proposals, planning site visits, and visually surveying districts. NYCEDC was a fantastic place to intern, and I recommend it for anyone passionate about developing a stronger urban economy.”
