Ariel Palitz Is New York City’s First Nightlife Mayor

From a New York Times story by Dodai Stewart headlined “Last Call for New York’s First ‘Bar Czar'”:

When Ariel Palitz tells people she is New York City’s first nightlife mayor, they usually respond, “That’s cool.” And then: “What does that mean?”

Some imagine the role involves barhopping and staying out until dawn. But it is very much a day job, and Ms. Palitz acts as a liaison, a peacekeeper, an educator and more.
