Yesterday, Mayor Bloomberg announced that New York City would be the first place in the U.S. to get its own top-level domain: .nyc. In a statement, the mayor said the domain "puts New York City at the forefront of the digital landscape and creates new opportunities for our small businesses. They'll now be able to identify themselves as connected to New York City, one of the world's strongest and most prestigious brands."
