Community Board Five
Manhattan Community Board Five represents many diverse and interesting groups, neighborhoods, districts, industries and tourist destinations. From Bryant Park to Central Park, from the Garment District to the Theater District, from The Empire State Building to Grand Central Station, Community Board Five is home to countless world-class destinations, with more than 50 million visitors each year. We represent the businesses, residents, tourists and students of this extraordinary district, and we strive to work with and represent all these segments of our community.
The Community Board staff, headed by the District Manager, assists the Board with its work and helps to resolve citizens' complaints regarding the delivery of municipal services. Boards have an important advisory role in dealing with land use and zoning matters, the City budget, municipal service delivery and many other issues relating to the welfare of the community. The Board works closely with city agencies, city, state, and federal elected officials, business organizations and civic and community groups.
