Bigger Apple (Manhattan Institute newsletter, 2020-present)

The Manhattan Institute is a conservative American think tank focused on domestic policy and urban affairs, located at 52 Vanderbilt Avenue in Manhattan. In 2020, the Manhattan Institute started publishing a weekly newsletter called Bigger Apple, a name obviously influenced by New York City’s nickname, the Big Apple.

The Manhattan Institute for Policy Research (renamed in 1981 from the International Center for Economic Policy Studies) is a conservative American think tank focused on domestic policy and urban affairs, established in Manhattan in 1978 by Antony Fisher and William J. Casey, a former CIA director. The institute has produced books, articles, interviews, speeches, op-eds, and the quarterly publication City Journal.

“Will the Big Apple be a growing place where all New Yorkers can flourish, or a zero-sum city intent on rationing its legacy to whatever interest group can bend a powerful ear?”
