Made in NYC

Made in NYC (MINYC), an initiative of the Pratt Center for Community Development was created to support a vibrant manufacturing sector in New York City.  Local manufacturing encourages entrepreneurship and innovation, creates employment opportunities for New York’s extraordinarily diverse workforce and gives the city much of its character and soul.

New York City is home to 5,700 small and medium manufacturers. They make everything from pianos to landing gear for spacecraft,  to food, fashion, and furnishings. What this incredibly diverse community has in common is a commitment to producing high-quality, high-value products, often customized to meet the needs of particular consumers.
