Where individuals are granted an opportunity to voice their concerns.


The City of New York is divided into fifty-nine geographic community districts, served by a local rep. body known as a Community Board. Each Community Board is composed of up to fifty unsalaried individuals who either live in or have an interest in the community, selected to serve on the board by the Borough President or local City Council representatives.

Service Delivery

We are involved with many issues facing residents within our district, such as housing complaints against landlords, street defect complaints, water complaints, and other issues concerning the quality of life. We do our best to rectify any and all problems that involve the input of other City agencies in a timely manner.

We also handle community complaints such as potholes, trees that require pruning, missing, damaged, or incorrect street signs, malfunctioning street lights, clogged catch basins, leaky hydrants, bypassed garbage collection, heat and hot water-or lack thereof, and a host of other types of complaints. Any complaints we do not handle, most likely, we will be able to direct you to the proper authority that will handle it.

The District office is also responsible for processing street activity permits for street closings, block parties, street festivals, and clean-ups. Bus and Subway group passes are also available for organizations sponsoring youth programs
