The Hundred Year Association of New York was founded in 1927 to recognize and reward dedication and service to the City of New York by businesses and organizations that have been in operation in the City for a century or more and by individuals who have devoted their lives to the City as City employees.


The Association also provides services to its members to promote to the public their history and contributions to the educational and civic affairs of New York and to preserve, foster and perpetuate high ideals and worthy traditions that have been handed down through the years in the business and professional life of the City of New York. It also stands ready to use the background of experience of its members for the common good as opportunity arises; and to aid and counsel those less experienced whose success would contribute substantially to the City’s business and civic fabric.


The Hundred Year Association of New York is a not-for-profit organization, tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
