Dominic Sonkowsky
Graduate Analyst

Dominic is an urban planning generalist who delivers insights through comprehensive multimodal data analysis and thoughtful stakeholder engagement.


Dominic joins Karp Strategies with experience in stakeholder engagement, economic development, and infrastructure planning. Currently pursuing a Master of Urban Planning from New York University, he draws on prior consulting and research experience to provide market, land use, and policy analysis driving actionable strategies across community and economic development projects. At a previous fellowship, Dominic delivered funding, financing, and governance insights for infrastructure projects and drafted profiles for economic development projects in New York City’s Chinatown under the New York State Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) program. At the New York University Rudin Center for Transportation Policy & Management, he conducted quantitative and qualitative analysis on the equity impacts, benefits, and challenges of the New York City Open Restaurants outdoor dining program. He co-authored a paper with the key findings recently featured in The Gothamist and StreetsblogNYC. Direct experience with a diverse range of stakeholders—including New York City Chinatown small business owners, Jersey City bike advocates, and transit megaproject directors—defines his past professional work, academic projects at NYU, and volunteer work with the neighborhood nonprofit Welcome to Chinatown. In his spare time, he’ll try to beat his friends in a game of mahjong, or pick the best fruit from Chinatown street vendors on Mulberry Street.
