Manhattan Community Board 11
Manhattan Community Board No. 11 is a City of New York government agency, covering East Harlem/El Barrio, an area between 96th and 142nd Streets, from the east side of Fifth Avenue to the East River, including Marcus Garvey Park, as well as Randall's and Ward's Islands. The 50-member volunteer board, supported by three/four City-paid staff members, engages in various outreach activities and advocates for resident needs in a gentrifying community. With a focus on preserving and developing affordable housing, creating employment opportunities and improving education, we have an advisory role in the City's land use review process, annual budget, delivery of municipal services and are an active participant in most large-scale development proposals and planning activities.
