New York City Region

The City That Never Sleeps has a unique and pivotal role in the New York space ecosystem. While it is absent any rocket ranges or dark skies, the City is home to powerhouse universities, world-class public science facilities, and a unique role as a global hub of space finance.

Headlined by global universities such as Columbia and NYU, there is also an immense network of CUNY schools and other institutions spread throughout the boroughs offering programming in physics, aeronautics, and engineering. World-class facilities like the Hayden Planetarium exist in the same borough as the much cozier Lower East Side Girls Club Planetarium, demonstrating the full range of civic space assets available to New Yorkers.

The Brooklyn Navy Yard is home to an energetic cluster of space start-ups, while parts of Queens and Brooklyn are home to legacy aerospace manufacturers. Yet nothing compares to the uniqueness and potency of the New York City space finance sector.

With dozens of active firms employing hundreds of workers in space finance, combined with the fact that New York is already a prime global finance hub, it is no surprise that New York was a Top-2 source of domestic space financing in 2021.

NYC is the undisputed center of gravity in the state, a center for arts, culture, commerce, government, and travel. NYC is also home to the beating heart of the American space finance sector, which holds the potential to open countless doors for the space industry throughout the rest of the state.

Including 330 organizations and resources throughout the New York City Region!
