Good Old Lower East Side

GOLES is a neighborhood housing and preservation organization that has served the Lower East Side of Manhattan since 1977.

Their primary and interrelated areas of concern are affordable housing, environmental justice, economic justice, and land use. GOLES strives to tackle these needs simultaneously through organizing, education, coalition-building, and direct service. More than 3000 people participate annually in over 100 programs and events, reaching 11,000 residents in total.


SUMMERFEST at Pier 42 will be an event to encourage youth to keep moving and bring families to our waterfront. There will be physical activities, games and healthy snack options available. Community leaders and organizations will share information on promoting wellness and utilizing public spaces.
