Manhattan Community Board Six (CB6) is a government agency of the City of New York. CB6 serves an advisory role in reviewing land use and zoning matters, the city budget, municipal service delivery, liquor licenses, and other matters in Manhattan Community District 6 (CD6), an 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.
CB6 also works closely with city agencies, elected officials, businesses, and community groups to provide constituent services to all who live, work, and visit Manhattan Community District 6.
Our board welcomes you to our district, and we look forward to seeing you at our next meeting. Upcoming meetings can be found on our calendar.

CB6 Launches a Dedicated Website Focused on the Future Sale of the Mount Sinai-Beth Israel Campus in Our District
Mount Sinai – Beth Israel has plans to sell its hospital campus in the southern part of our district. If it is sold, the transaction would be one of the largest real estate sales in Manhattan in recent years. And while this could mean that the site will become home to luxury condos out of reach of many in our district, the redevelopment of this site also presents an opportunity to address long-standing community needs, such as building affordable housing, community facilities, or park space. That is why, for the past year, CB6 has been exploring ways for the community to influence this potential sale.
Influencing a big property sale to meet the needs of our district requires a lot of community outreach and input, so CB6 has created a dedicated website to keep the community abreast of news regarding this exciting project. We’ll also continue to update the community on this project through this newsletter.
