The New York Building Congress is a trade group that works on behalf of the construction industry in the New York City area. As such, it lobbies local and state governments; amasses and distributes data on residential and commercial construction; and hosts conferences and workshops.

The congress is comprised of more than 400 constituent organizations, which are in turn made up of more than 250,000 skilled trades people and professionals. The congress especially advocates on their behalf for targeted capital spending, including by the public sector, and public/private partnerships for development.

Twenty-five architects, engineers, contractors and construction workers started the congress in April 1921, right as the citys mid-20th century growth spurt commenced. Richard Anderson is the congress current president; Thomas Z. Scarangello chairs it. -TA
