Thank you to those that attended the June 14th CB6 meeting.  Our showing was strong, our voices were clear, thoughtful, and passionate.   There’s more to come and we need you there.

ERFA needs community residents to come out strongly to the next two meetings as well.  Show your support for your community – for our common desire for smart, contextual development and to prevent the very real out-of-scale development we are now facing.

These hearings and meetings are the City process.  They are critical steps along the way to getting our rezoning proposal passed.  Your presence matters.

Joint CB6 and Manhattan Borough President Public Hearing

Date: June 21, 2017

Time: 6:30 pm

Location: Japan Society, 333 East 47th Street, Auditorium


ERFA will present its rezoning application, then public testimony will be taken.  Any member of the public who wishes to offer testimony may do so. If you would like to speak, come with a short statement (no longer than 3 minutes) in support and sign up to speak when you arrive. Even if you would rather not speak, your presence as a community member and concerned private citizen is very important.  Show CB6 and the Borough President that you stand with ERFA.

Special CB6 Full Board Meeting

Date:  June 27, 2017

Time: 7 p.m.

Location: Japan Society, 333 East 47th Street, Auditorium

Community Board Members will discuss the rezoning proposal and then the full Board will vote.  Show CB6’s board that we are all in solidarity as a community by coming to this meeting.

We’ll be there and look forward to seeing YOU there as well.

This effort takes all of us working together in various ways.  Here are other ways you can continue to help:

Sign the Petition

Let the City Planning Commissioners know that you support contextual development in the East River Fifties.


We need volunteers to coordinate petition signing in their buildings in the neighborhood, and we need feet-on-the-street volunteers next week (Wed, Thurs, Friday) to collect petition names. We need both.  If you are interested, please contact

Give a financial contribution

Help ERFA continue this fight.  We are only asking for the same consideration for rezoning as has been afforded other neighborhoods in this city.  As we make our way through the City process, we need the continued expertise of our team-planners, media, community organizing, and legal support.  Every contribution is meaningful. Please give generously to support the effort and to fight for your quality of life.
