Designated Landmarks and Historic Districts in Manhattan Community Board Six: A Resource Guide
This is the first Manhattan Community Board Six (CB6) resource guide for designated landmarks within our district. Two key factors motivated us. We are very aware that proliferating development may threaten some of these sites and others not yet formally designated as landmarks. But we also believe it is important to better inform CB6 constituents about these historic treasures, so they can learn about and enjoy them while realizing that protecting them is an ongoing process.

CB6 Helps Secure Pedestrian Safety Measures at 58th Street and 2nd Avenue
After a pedestrian was fatally struck by a vehicle at the intersection of East 58th Street and 2nd Avenue in July, Community Board 6 immediately took up the matter. Community residents attended that month’s Transportation Committee meeting to share their concerns about this intersection and to request that pedestrian safety measures be implemented there. As a result, CB6 called on the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) to address the community’s concerns about the safety of this intersection. CB6 is pleased to report that the DOT has installed a leading pedestrian interval signal at the intersection. CB6 thanks DOT and especially the concerned members of the community whose activism helped make this possible.
