Dear Wellington,

Last week, Chinatown Partnership in collaboration with the Chinatown Youth Initiative blasted off the 9th annual Chinatown Beautification Day! One of the growing and expanding projects under Chinatown Youth Initiatives.  Over 150 teens from all over the city worked together with our CleanStreet workers to clean up the sidewalks of Chinatown. If you missed it, here is your chance to have a virtual photo &  video re-cap!

Chinatown Beautification Day was created in 2003 to address the ongoing sanitation & environmental problems in Chinatown. Since 2009, a city-wide youth conference was also added. The Youth Conference complements CBD by discussing the various facets of leadership and community involvement in a broader context. The Cleanup Day following the conference is the physical manifestation of youth leadership and involvement. 


This year's theme is "I stand for. We Clean for. I hope for".

Hand in Hand - Remembering 9/11



A simple yet powerful symbol of unity and our dedication to keeping the memory of September 11, 2001 alive, thousands will grasp hands to form a human chain along Lower Manhattan's west side waterfront.


Saturday, September 10, 2011. Check-in stations will be open from 7:30am until 8:15am. Our human chain will connect at 8:46 am, the exact time the first airplane hit the North Tower.


Participation is free and open to all, but pre-registration is required on this website. Thousands of people, New Yorkers and visitors alike, are invited to join us. We encourage children to attend! The event is conceived and presented by Manhattan Community Board 1 with the help of many people who generously donated their time and services.


As we pause to recognize 10 years since our lives were changed on a single morning, Community Board 1 is giving the public a way to show their respect for those who have been lost and show their determination to stand connected in unity as we continue to look toward the future of Lower Manhattan and our city. Hand in Hand-Remembering 9/11 is a simple and meaningful way for everyone to mark the anniversary.


JOIN US If you wish to attend this event, please register with us so we can go as a group.
