Office of Special Projects and Community Events
Reports to Chief of Staff
The Mayor's Office of Special Projects and Community Events (MOSPCE) organizes, manages and directs all public ceremonies, celebrations, receptions, and similar affairs held under City auspices by order of the Mayor. MOSPCE also coordinates the activities of the various City agencies and departments with regard to the planning and implementation of special events, and maintains liaison with the private sector for the coordination and support of City-sponsored functions. Gracie Mansion – "the People's House" – serves as a historical centerpiece for many of these gatherings, as do New York City schools, museums, theatres, and landmark buildings.
