Small Business Forum

On November 6, 2019 CHN, Manhattan Community Board 8 (CB8) and local leaders met with small business owners to discuss the vacancy issues plaguing our neighborhood and the City as a whole.

There was wonderful turn out and some bold ideas generated on how to preserve the small businesses we have and how to attract new ones.

Neighborhood Clean Up Days

Carnegie Hill Neighbors partners with residents, local officials and businesses on a seasonal basis, to spruce up the pocket park located on Park Avenue between 96th and 97th Streets.

We also welcome corporate partners, large and small, who are looking for volunteer opportunities for their employees.

Please email for more information.

Block Assessments

Well-maintained city sidewalks and healthy greenery are vital components to cultivating a beautiful neighborhood. Carnegie Hill Neighbors will walk your block with you to assess any repairs or improvements to be made.

We can direct you toward the appropriate channels to address the needs of whatever project your block may require.

Educational Forums

Carnegie Hill Neighbors educates and informs our members on a wide range of topics.  Some of our programs and forums include:

Slip and Fall Prevention

We also offer tours and talks on the neighborhood’s rich architectural history and discuss the advent of New York City’s historical district mapping. We organize outings to instruct city gardeners on how to prepare, plant and maintain their piece of the urban landscape — from tree beds to public parkland in our neighborhood’s playgrounds and public garden spaces.
