NY is atop a list of cities challenging Silicon Valley for tech supremacy, according to Zach Cutler of The Cutler Group.  In an op-ed in The Huffington Post, Cutler states that the city is the fastest-growing tech hub in the U.S., and that according to the Center for an Urban Future, tech related jobs have increased by 28.7 percent in the past five years.

Big startups such as Etsy, Kickstarter and Kaltura are based here and corporate tech companies including eBay, Facebook and Google opened NY offices. He also refers to local incentives in the article,  including Mayor Bloomberg’s push to establish technology as a major government priority and Roosevelt Island’s forthcoming Cornell NYC Tech science and engineering campus.
