Who We Are

We are Friends From The City. We pride ourselves on our forward-thinking approach to design and technology, creating user-focused solutions that are both accessible and impactful. We’re fully remote and headquartered in the vibrant heart of New York City. We provide support to government agencies, empowering them to better serve the people with modern products and services.

Our mission is to make interactions with the government easy for all people.
