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.

Free workshop, co-sponsored by CB6 and US SBA at SIBL. 8:30 – 10:30 AM. When you’re busy running your business, it’s impossible to find time to be active on every social media outlet out there. Narrowing down your choice to just a select few platforms will allow you to focus your efforts and get the best return on your time investment. So how do you choose the best social media platform? This workshop with Lauren Yothers will help you determine which is right for your business. RSVP to email@example.com.
