of residents and friends of Jane Street.

Once again we thank Karen Lashinsky of 632onHudson for hosting us.

Building Community and Preserving Quality of Life 

Quality of Life Alerts 


Residents remain concerned about

bars and lounges requesting 4AM closings

as part of their applications for a liquor license. These applications require neighborhood outreach before being heard by Community Board 2. Please join us in monitoring these applications, to ensure that late-night hours, noise, and poor patron and traffic control, do not affect our quality of life. CB2's monthly calendar is published online. Please get in touch if you'd like to join the group of residents who meet with applicants. ​More details on our local issues page.

Our New Responsibilities


​The JSBA has long been responsible for bi-annual care of our 75 street trees. We've recently expanded our territory, which now includes:


  • The West Street Garden, which runs along the West Side Highway between Jane and Horatio
  • The Triangle Garden at the junction of 8th Avenue and West 4th Street
  • Additional trees and tree pits on Hudson Street between Horatio and 12th

​​Big news: A New Garden and Fence on Jane Street at

the West Side Highway!  

We need your donation

to help complete the project!

A Jane Street resident since 1957, Arthur was a tireless advocate for the neighborhood: Founding Chair of Community Board2; President of the West Village Committee;

instrumental in the fight against Westway, and an original member of the Block Association. He helped plan Jane Street’s famous Nieuw Amsterdam Festival of 1982 and helped build its windmill feature in the Jane Street Garden. He was also a member of the Beatrice Inn Dining Club. There’s more about Arthur’s life and many achievements in an oral history recorded by the New York Public Library. Arthur is survived by his daughter, Lee Stoliar Dufresne, his son-in-law, Leonard, and grandchild, Abby. He will be much missed by us all.
