Greenpoint - Williamsburg
Gerald A. Esposito
There are 59 Community Boards in the City of New York. Brooklyn has 18 and the Greenpoint-Williamsburg neighborhoods are in Community Board No. 1. This is the area bounded by:
North: Newtown Creek, East: Newtown Creek, English Kills, Brooklyn-Queens Borough line, South: Flushing Avenue, West: Williamsburg Street, Kent Avenue, Division Avenue, Wallabout Channel, East River.
Community Board #1 (CB#1) is made up of a group of volunteers (no more than 50 persons) who live, work or have other interests in the area plus the City Council Members serving any part of the area. Like a town hall, public meetings of CB#1 are the place where interested citizens discuss community issues, monitor government performance, and advise city agencies on neighborhood matters.
