Manhattan Community Board 7 Budget Priorities for Fiscal Year 2020 can be found HERE

Dear Upper West Side Community:

With the Covid infection rate rising in recent weeks, the City’s Test & Trace Corps,
Health & Hospitals Corporation, and Community Affairs Unit are reminding all of us
 – even those of us in Manhattan where the increases in infection rates have not been
as extreme – to continue to take all necessary precautions.  

The “core 4” precautions that have proven effective to date include:

  1. Wear a mask or face covering.
  2. Wash your hands frequently with soap for at least 20 seconds.
  3. Keep physical distancing of at least 6 feet.
  4. Stay home if sick.
We are encouraged to get tested.  There are many private locations offering Covid testing.  In addition, the NYC Health & Hospitals agency offers free testing at certain sites. 

For a list of free Health & Hospitals testing sites, please visit:

Hoping we can all stay safe and healthy –

Community Board 7

Welcome to the MCB7 website.
We are glad you chose to visit our webpages
and learn about our work.

The purpose of Manhattan Community Board 7 is to ensure that city services are accessible and responsive to residents, organizations, businesses, and institutions of Manhattan's Upper West Side. By hosting regular meetings open to the public, CB7 acts as a conduit for communicating events, addressing local concerns, and processing municipal applications of various sorts.

CB7 also plays an important advisory role in planning, land use, zoning, and the City budget. Our boundaries are from West 59th Street to 110th Street, and from Central Park to the Hudson River, with points of interests such as the American Museum of Natural History and Rose Center, Lincoln Center, Bloomingdale Historic District, Mahattan Valley, Columbus Circle, and Central Park.

Please consider joining our email list for updates on matters of interest to our Upper West Side community and issues to be addressed at upcoming CB7 meetings.  You can sign up for our email list by clicking here. Other than in emergencies, we aim to send no more than one email message per week, so we will endeavor not to flood your inbox.

You can also learn more about upcoming events involving CB7 by using the “Calendar of Events” button under the “Meetings” tab on the CB7 home page, which will direct you to the schedule of Committee and full Board meetings and hearings each month, with links to the respective agendas.

Please feel welcome to contact us with questions or concerns relating to our work.

Sincerely yours,

Mark Diller
