Our commitment to customer care in the New York District is to provide quality, responsive engineering services to the Nation in peace and war. Integrity, Quality, Professionalism, Caring--these values are our standards; we will accept no less. We strive to be the best public engineering agency in the world.

One of the New York District's unique strengths is its diversity.
