DOT launches platform for New Yorkers to report areas where double-parking and blocked bike lanes commonly occur

Press Release

Citywide Loading Zone Expansion

We want to hear from you! Local Law 168 of 2021 requires the NYC DOT to consider community boards, elected officials, and public input when locating new loading zones. This portal will serve as an additional channel for soliciting direct public feedback.

Users can identify problem areas by placing a pin on a map and leaving comments. Users can report areas where passengers and/or goods are frequently loaded and unloaded. This information, along with other data and considerations, will be used by the NYC DOT to determine where additional loading zones should be located throughout the city.

Take the survey to help improve Central Park's Drive and make them more equitable to a variety of users.

Manhattan CB7's Environmental Justice Working Group Findings

CB7's Environmental Justice Working Group has come together with community members to identify the needs in critical areas of our district for a report for the Mayor's office. The Environmental Justice report for the northern and southern ends of our district addressed pressing issues in the areas between 100th-110th streets from Amsterdam Avenue to Central Park West, and West 58th Street to West 66th Street between Amsterdam and 12th Avenues which include fresh food access, air pollution, waste management and playgrounds/recreational spaces.

Dear Upper West Siders:

The Covid Pandemic continues to require vigilance to protect ourselves and each other.

With talk of a vaccine dominating the media, and the potential that some may wrongly conclude that protective measures can now be more lax, renewed attention to the "Core 4" precautions may be as crucial now as they were previously.

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

  • Wear a mask or face covering
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap for at least 20 seconds
  • Keep physical distancing of at least 6 feet
  • 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:

For those seeking recommendations, information and data about Covid, the pandemic, and related matters, you may want to consult the following websites:

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.
