New York City (November 7, 2011) — NYC & Company, the official marketing, tourism and partnership organization for the City of New York, today announced the addition of several new products on nycshop.com, New York City’s official online shop. Starting today, nycshop.com will have new merchandise for the holiday season, including a cold-weather NYPD knit cap, a tote bag highlighting iconic New York City attractions and the popular borough T-shirts featured in heather grey.

The new products will be featured alongside apparel representing all five boroughs; vintage-style FDNY and NYPD T-shirts; co-branded Marvel products; water bottles; key chains; coffee mugs and more. The merchandise is available in an array of styles and sizes for kids, juniors, men and women, and can be shipped to all 50 states and more than 97 countries, including Brazil, Canada, China, Ireland, Mexico, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

The nycshop.com products include City agency brands, including the NYPD, FDNY, New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission, Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting, and Department of Sanitation. As with all officially licensed City merchandise, a significant portion of the proceeds from the sale of these products will benefit the New York City Police Foundation (nycpolicefoundation.org) and the FDNY Foundation (fdnyfoundation.org).
