2013 New York City Rising Stars

Written by City & State on . Posted in Features, Rising Stars.

With so many open seats in the New York City Council, a constellation of Rising Stars will be coming out in City Hall this January. But not all of this next generation of the best and the brightest are elected-officials-to-be. As always, many of the most dynamic, innovative and passionate individuals who have devoted their young lives to politics and government are staffers, advocates, strategists, journalists and organizers. While the Big Apple is a magnet for so much of the world’s greatest talent, there are always those who shine even amid a galaxy of standouts. The following are 40 individuals under 40 who have already distinguished themselves in the eyes of their colleagues, and who are well on their way to amassing many more noteworthy accomplishments in the future. Meet City & State’s 2014 class of 40 Under 40 New York City Rising Stars.
