The purpose of Manhattan Community Board 9 (MCB9) is to ensure that City services are accessible and responsive to the needs of all residents, organizations, businesses, and institutions in West Harlem. The New York City Charter mandates that all community boards advise and inform their respective constituencies on matters relevant to their immediate neighborhood. Toward this end, MCB9 convenes 10 committee meetings each month: Arts & Culture; Economic Development; Health & Environment; Housing; Landmarks & Preservation; Land Use & Zoning; Safety, Uniform Services, & Transportation; Senior Issues; Waterfronts, Parks, & Recreation; and Youth, Education, & Libraries. MEETING CALENDAR >
Manhattan Community Board 9 encompasses the West Harlem neighborhoods of Morningside Heights, Manhattanville, and Hamilton Heights. Extending from 110th Street to 155th Street, our boundaries are Cathedral Parkway on the south; 155th Street on the north; Manhattan, Morningside, St Nicholas, Bradhurst, and Edgecombe Avenues on the east; and the Hudson River on the west.
We consider each neighborhood a village, a community unique in its own way, rich in cultural diversity and steeped in historical significance.
