East Sixties Neighborhood Association


The purpose of the Association is to promote a better community. This is accomplished through group action, representing the residents, merchants and institutions within its boundaries. ESNA addresses a range of issues that affect the quality of life within the community. Efforts to achieve these goals are often combined with those of other neighborhood groups, Community Board 8, city agencies and elected officials.

The East Sixties Neighborhood Association, Inc. (ESNA) is a Type A Corporation under section 201 of the New York State Not-For-Profit Corporation Law.


The Association’s work is done by members who volunteer their time and skills to participate in one or more projects. ESNA reaches out to the community in numerous ways. Projects are funded by annual membership dues, contributions, special events and grants. An all-volunteer board of directors meets monthly. A general meeting for the entire membership is held once a year in the fall.


The ESNA boundaries include the blocks within the East Sixties. Membership is open to residents, commercial businesses, and building owners, as well as anyone else with a compelling interest in the neighborhood.
