Welcome to CB6!

Community Board Six has an important New York City Charter mandated advisory role in dealing with land use and zoning matters, city budget, municipal service delivery and many other items relating to the welfare of those who live, work and visit our district. We represent the area on the east side of Manhattan from 14th to 59th Streets, from the East River to Lexington Avenue, and extending west to Madison Avenue between 34th and 40th Streets. This is one of the most diverse community districts in the city with the United Nations complex, major academic & medical institutions and Stuyvesant Town, Tudor City, Turtle Bay, Peter Cooper Village, Murray Hill, Gramercy Park, Kips Bay, East Midtown Plaza and Sutton Place within our boundaries. Please contact us with your community concerns.

The East Side Coastal Resilience Project (ESCR) is being designed to mitigate future climate change and flood risks on Manhattan’s East Side.The City plans to install a mix of three types of flood protection infrastructure  – permanent flood walls, deployable flood walls, and berms. Input at community meetings will help determine the design choices.  Construction will start in 2017.

In late July, community workshops took place to address proposals for the East River waterfront for Project Area 1,  from Lower East Side up to 14th St., and Project Area 2, from 14th St. to 23rd St.
