Elaine Young, a stalwart of the JSBA, dear friend and Jane Street neighbor, died on Sunday, May 27th. Elaine was a dedicated community activist who cared deeply about the West Village and the Meatpacking District. 

Elaine  had a successful career in real estate balanced with many years of service to the community, including Community Board 2. Her longtime volunteer work with the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation (GVSHP) included the successful drive to create the landmarked Gansevoort Market Historic District. And as a co-founder of Save Gansevoort, she received a GVSHP Villager Award in 2016. Her enthusiasm, acumen, integrity and tireless efforts will be missed by all.

Donations in her memory may be made to the GVSHP, to continue her preservation work for the West Village and the Meatpacking District.  To donate online, please go to:

Our Ongoing Quality

of Life Efforts  

We remain vigilant about​ bars and lounges requesting late closings — as late as 4 am —  as part of their application for a liquor license. These applications require neighborhood outreach before being heard by Community Board 2. Please join us in reviewing and commenting on these applications, to ensure that late-night hours, noise, patrons and traffic do not affect our quality of life. If you have an issue with an already established business, please email us and also contact our NCOs (Neighborhood Community Officers). CB2's monthly calendar is published online. Please get in touch if you'd like to join us (even if it is for just one meeting). More details on our local issues page.
