The governance of urban nature cannot be understood independent of the political economic context in which it is embedded. Thus, chapter one presents a brief overview of how the changing political economy since the 1970s fiscal crisis has affected the management of the urban environment in New York City by both state and non-state actors. In exploring the current environmental governance network in New York City, I present Social Network Analysis graphs of the urban forestry and urban agriculture organizational networks, which make visually apparent some of the key differences in the actors engaged across these issue areas.

Keywords:   governance, political economy, fiscal crisis, neoliberalism, New York City, civic stewardship, Social Network Analysis
