About New York YIMBY
New York YIMBY says ‘Yes In My Backyard’ to new development. The site covers architecture, construction, and real estate in the New York City region. With this in mind, not all development is good development; YIMBY supports projects that meet both pedestrian and aesthetic standards that will improve the city.
Within construction and real estate, New York YIMBY’s coverage emphasizes news that can be related via visuals. The site is driven by location-based photography, chronicling the rise of new buildings across the city and the evolution of the skyline. Skyscrapers are a particular focus, given their greater impact on New York’s overall aesthetic, but new projects of all sizes are featured.
New York YIMBY was founded in 2011 and is now in its third year. July 2014 saw 125,000 unique visitors.
About the Founder
Nikolai Fedak moved to New York City in 2008 to attend Fordham University’s Lincoln Center campus, majoring in political science and graduating early, in 2011. After Fordham, YIMBY saw significant progress while Nikolai interned at the Clinton Global Initiative and worked at Surface Magazine, beginning in 2012. With a keen eye for detail, the site’s content is curated based on what’s new, important, and pertinent to YIMBY’s active, influential, and rapidly growing readership.
