Manhattan Community Board 3
Manhattan Community Board 3 covers Manhattan’s Lower East Side, including the East Village, and historic Chinatown. It runs from 14th street to the Brooklyn Bridge and from the East River to Bowery, and to Baxter below Canal. Our 50-member volunteer board, supported by a staff of four, has an advisory role in the City’s land use review process, the annual budget, and the delivery of municipal services. The Board is an active participant in land use dispositions and local planning activities as the local government structure for participation in decision making for the community.
