Community Board No. 2  (CB2)

Many local issues, including Parks, Traffic, and Quality of Life, are addressed by the committees of CB2, our vital volunteer Community Board, which meets monthly. CB2 holds hearings about  liquor licenses, sidewalk restaurant seating, street traffic, and capital improvements to our Parks. Other hearings cover building work, which is reviewed for historical appropriateness, because Jane Street lies within the Greenwich Village Historic District. The meeting calendar is published online and sent to members of the mailing list.

The Abingdon Square Greenmarket, on 8th Avenue at 12th Street, operates Saturdays year-round from 8 AM to 2 PM and includes compost collection. For updates on Abingdon and other greenmarkets, go to GrowNYC.
