Series I consists of Goodgold's records from her service on numerous New York City citizen organizations. The City Club monitored city government actions on zoning, landmarks, financing, housing and transportation. It held luncheon meetings with prominent speakers, and each year sponsored a "Distinguished New Yorker" Award at a gala dinner. It also published a newsletter, The Gadfly. In describing her work at the City Club, Goodgold said, "I try to fill the potholes in government." Goodgold was chairperson of Community Board 7/Manhattan, as well as head of the transportation and steering committees. She was instrumental in securing Federal funds in the 1970s to repair the West Side Highway between 72nd and 82nd Streets. As a member of the Police Foundation's scholarship committee, she helped then-Capt. Ray Kelly to obtain a grant to attend the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
