.nyc is a proposed city-level top-level domain for New York City. The concept of the .nyc TLD was originally introduced by Community Board 3, Queens, the City of New York, on April 19 2001. An official proposal to ICANN is expected to be made in 2009.

The main goals of .nyc are to provide good domain names that improve tourism, marketing of local businesses, and encourage a sense of community between city residents. Once launched, a series of public service portals and search engine will be created specifically for the new TLD.

Connecting.nyc Inc., the not-for-profit leading the campaign to acquire the TLD, has the following mission statement:

ICANN approved a New TLD policy at its Paris meeting in June 2008 [http://news.zdnet.co.uk/internet/0,1000000097,39440158,00.htm] .

* .nyc.ny.us is inactive and held by NeuStar who also administers the .us domains.
* .berlin - The proposed TLD for Berlin.
