Kips Bay Neighborhood Association

The Kips Bay Neighborhood Association is a volunteer member 501(c)3 corporation, comprised of residents and local business owners who live or work in the Kips Bay Neighborhood, stretching from East 34th to East 23rd Street, the East River to Lexington Avenue.

OUR VISION is to have an economically and ecologically healthy residential and retail community; one that has a strong and respected voice with our elected officials and a cooperative dialogue with local institutions.

OUR MISSION is to bring together all who are interested in preserving the quality of life in Kips Bay and to improve the safety and aesthetics of our streetscapes, parks and public spaces. We are dedicated to facilitating cooperative efforts between local businesses, grass roots community groups, cultural groups and institutions to benefit the general welfare of those who reside or do business in Kips Bay.

The current legacy community group began to revitalize the organization in April 2010, continuing its original mission, though adding a new focus on resilience and sustainability projects and education.
