Bronx Community Board No. 1 serves the Mott Haven, Melrose and Port Morris Communities. The boundaries of District 1 follow the Harlem River; East 149th Street; Park Avenue; East 159th Street; East 161st Street; Prospect Avenue; East 149th Street and the East River.
Community Board 1 is the local municipal body that is the liaison, acts as advocate and provides the delivery of city services that plays a vital role in improving the quality of life for the residents in our communities.
The Community Board assists residents with inquiries and processes their complaints to the appropriate City agency.
We should embrace the vision of a "Downtown Bronx", a gateway which symbolizes the renaissance of the Bronx.
