New York City has long been one of the creative and intellectual hubs of the United States, if not of the world. This is as true in our field as in others, for many astrologers who spent time in the stimulating astrological community of New York went on to influence the history and development of the greater community in profound ways.

Many of them were active in astrology organizations that were also spawned in New York. The New York Astrology Guild and the Congress of Astrological Organizations no longer exist, but NCGR was founded there and remains an important force in the national scene. (NY-NCGR has its own web page, well worth a visit.)
