50 over Fifty 2016
50 over Fifty 2016
At City & State, we like our lists.
Every year we publish two 40 Under 40 lists, recognizing rising stars in politics and government in New York City and in Albany. We carefully assess the power players in the city and the state to bring you our annual Power 100 lists. As part of our Above & Beyond series, we honor women who stand out in their fields and military veterans who go beyond the call of duty. Every week, we present the biggest winners and losers in New York politics.
Now, we bring you something new: the 50 Over 50.
In this special section, we honor 50 New Yorkers who are at least 50 years old. We recognize the record of achievement of these outstanding figures, who have distinguished themselves in academia, advocacy, business, government, organized labor and other fields and professions.
Many of them are widely known. Others have become influential figures behind the scenes. All of them have an impressive record of accomplishment.
Congratulations to them all!
