Since 2011, Carnegie Hill Neighbors has thrown a most popular Halloween street party with a costume procession, candy treats for all, and dancing in the streets led by a lively DJ. Trophies and prizes are awarded for best costumes by age, family and pet, and for best decorated neighborhood townhouses and storefronts. The Halloween spirits thrive.

The Showtime Series “Billions”
Our annual meeting is a legal requirement, but members attending always enjoy refreshments and a social time, before and after a presentation given by a noted author, historian, or representative of another preservation or parks organization. Topics presented are always pertinent to Carnegie Hill, such as a famous architect or nearby Central Park projects. In addition, CHN president and executive director give a presentation about current building issues, CHN’s activities, and local news; a slate of the board of directors is elected and CHN board members are available to answer neighbors’ questions.
2018 CHN Breakfast Series
Because many young parents who are busy in the early evening cannot attend the Carnegie Hill Neighbors Annual Meeting, CHN offers an abbreviated morning event. Coffee and pastries replace wine and hors d’ oeuvres, and guests hear updates about CHN activities plus a presentation from a guest speaker.

Urban Beekeeping: Cities are Better with Bees
November 1 at 6:30 pm - House of the Redeemer at The Fabbri Mansion
Guillermo Fernandez, Director of The Honeybee Conservancy and an urban beekeeper, will talk about how urban beekeeping has the potential to not only support healthy bee populations, but also support healthy urban communities.
Urban beekeeping is popping up globally in iconic places such as the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris, and London’s Buckingham Palace. Since legalizing beekeeping, New York City has led the charge, with beehives pollinating the 700 urban farms and gardens spread across the Big Apple that provide access to healthy produce for local residents. The Honeybee Conservancy is a charity organization that helps the bees while increasing access to sustainable food in underserved communities.
Tickets: $20. Please call to reserve: (212) 289-0399.
