Our elected officials make decisions every day that affect our neighborhoods and our future. We will soon elect a new Mayor, Borough President, Public Advocate, and Comptroller. There are contested races in all three of our City Council districts, including two open seats.
The Mayor, our City Councilmembers, and the Borough President have critical roles in land use decisions in our neighborhood, and help shape the outcome of landmarks proposals and development projects like NYU's expansion, the Chelsea Market upzoning, and the rezoning of the former St. Vincent's Hospital site for condos. It is vitally important that you educate yourself and exercise your right to vote and have a say in who represents you.
Toward that end, GVSHP has worked with the Manhattan Neighborhood Network to help educate the public about the upcoming City Council races in our area. Click HERE for a map of the new City Council districts in Manhattan to find out which district you live in, and to find out more about each race.
