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 quality of life 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. Located within our boundaries are 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. Please contact us with your community concerns.

Grants Available for Nonprofit Organizations and Public Schools
Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer has announced the opening of the application period for Manhattan Community Award Program (MCAP) grants. These grants provide small funding awards—between $3,500 and $5,000—to nonprofit organizations and public schools to help support programming or operational expenses. This year, Borough President Brewer will also allocate funds to Manhattan organizations under the Fresh Taste Manhattan Initiative, to support healthy eating and plant-based food preparation demonstrations at local supermarkets.
