West Chelsea

Lowell D. Kern
Board Chair
Jesse Bodine
District Manager

Welcome to your Community Board! From more affordable housing to more schools, parks, hospitals, safe transportation, less noise, better business balance, and preserving the diversity of our neighborhood character, the 50 members of Community Board 4 volunteer to represent the district's residents, institutions, non profit and businesses' common interests to City agencies and bring solutions to our district. The City Charter ascribes to Community Boards an important advisory role in dealing with land use planning and zoning matters, the City budget and the delivery of City services in our district.

If you have any problems in your neighborhood, please feel free to contact us.

HOPE 2020

On Monday, January 27, 2020, the Dept. of Homeless Services will conduct its Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE), an annual point-in-time survey of NYers sleeping unsheltered on the streets. The survey provides valuable information that helps ensure HOME-STAT outreach teams are providing resources to this vulnerable population in their ongoing year-round outreach efforts.

Volunteers are needed from 10p.m. - 4p.m. on the night of the 27th to help canvass parks, subways, and other public spaces.
