New Plans for Our Neighborhood

Get Involved

In 2023, Mount Sinai Beth Israel will sell two large properties flanking Stuyvesant Park: 1 and 10 Nathan Perlman Place (in yellow below) in order to reduce operating costs and increase specialization across facilities. This transaction will be one of the largest sales of real estate in Manhattan.

Community Board 6 (CB6) wants to ensure the sale of this property and any future operations will benefit the residents of the neighborhood, maintaining these areas as a community asset. The organization is urging everyone in the neighborhood to become involved in a comprehensive community visioning process to ensure the work is representative and inclusive. To learn more about this sale, sign up for meetings, and have your voice heard, visit https://perlman.cbsix.org/.
