Our neighborhood is fortunate to have a number of organizations that work in tandem to improve the quality of life for everyone in the Garment District. 

 
Community Boards

Community Boards play an important role in improving the quality of life for all New Yorkers, including dealing with land use and zoning issues, assessing the needs of their neighborhoods, and addressing other community concerns. We encourage all members of our community to participate in Community Board meetings. Schedules can be found on their website. 

Community Board 5 - Covering the Garment District from 8th Avenue to 5th Avenue, CB5 serves as the citizens’ voice for midtown Manhattan.

Community Board 4 - The blocks of our neighborhood between 8th Avenue and 9th Avenue are a part of CB4 which represents the common interests of the residents, institutions, non-profits, and businesses of the west side of Midtown.
