At SAC, we want to make it easy for you to contribute any way you can to our community. Take a look at our committee list below, and let us know how you would like to help.

Beautification Committee

The Beautification Committee is dedicated to enhancing the aesthetics and ambience of our neighborhood. Through your membership, additional contributions, and volunteer work we all succeed. We make sure our community looks and feels welcoming to all residents and visitors. One of our notable efforts includes the carefully maintained median rose bushes, from 52nd – 59th St along 1st Ave, which add a touch of streetside elegance. Our commitment to maintaining and beautifying the Sutton Area Community is unwavering. We believe that a visually pleasing and litter-free environment fosters a stronger sense of community and well-being.


  • In 2023, we repainted 43 fire hydrants throughout our neighborhood. 
  • We’re pleased to announce that all graffiti on 1st Avenue between 54th and 55th streets, both on the east and west sides, has been successfully removed. This achievement was made possible by painting over the graffiti with graffiti-resistant paint, ensuring a cleaner and more visually appealing environment for residents and visitors.
  • After months of collaboration with local council members Julie Menin and Keith Powers, and in conjunction with the Department of Sanitation (DSNY), SAC has successfully replaced all the trash bins with new rodent proof trash bins on every corner throughout our neighborhood. 

We look forward to Spring 2024!

Government Committee

We prioritize regular communication with our elected officials to stay informed about issues affecting the Sutton Area Community. Through close collaboration with Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine, Councilwoman Julie Menin, Councilman Keith Powers, State Senator Liz Krueger, and State Assemblyman Alex Bores, we ensure that our community concerns are addressed promptly and effectively. This collaborative effort involves attending Community Board 6 meetings and working closely with city agencies such as NYC Parks, DOT, and DSNY.

These partnerships are instrumental in our ongoing efforts to prioritize safety and security within our community. We recognize the importance of maintaining well-maintained spaces, including the recently opened Esplanade (Greenway) at 54th Street, and work diligently to ensure they remain welcoming and secure environments for all residents and visitors. Through proactive engagement with our elected officials and city agencies, we strive to uphold the quality of life and sense of belonging in the Sutton Area Community.

Memberships/ Merchants Committee

Membership is a cornerstone of the vibrant and welcoming community of Sutton Place. It encompasses the upkeep and nurturing of our beautiful rose bushes, the essential task of keeping our streets and sidewalks clean from litter, and numerous other contributions that enrich the value of being a member. Individual memberships play a crucial role, while the support from neighborhood merchants serves as the sturdy backbone of the Sutton Area Community, reinforcing its strength and vitality. Together, these memberships contribute to creating a thriving and cohesive neighborhood that residents and visitors alike can enjoy and appreciate.

17th Precinct/Public Safety Committee

The 17th Precinct of the NYPD is tasked with maintaining and promoting public safety in the Sutton Area Community. Their area of responsibility includes a bustling section of Midtown Manhattan, with landmark Times Square, portions of the Theater District, and the Sutton Place neighborhood.
