The Crown Heights North Association, Inc. (CHNA) was founded on the issue of landmarking, but we are much more than that. is dedicated to not only landmarking, but to cultural heritage, our neighbors, especially our seniors, and our economic development. We began as a group organized by by Denise Brown, Deborah Young, their neighbors and friends and we’ve grown to be one of Crown Heights’ most important non-profit community organizations.
On April 27, 2007, with unprecedented community and political support, Phase 1 of a multi-phased plan to landmark CHN was unanimously passed by the City Council, and 472 buildings became the first part of a larger Crown Heights North Historic District. Phase 2 was designated in 2011. Phase 3 was calendared immediately afterward, and designated in 2015.
CHNA spearheaded the landmarking effort. Now, like Crown Heights North itself, we are growing. We’ve got big plans, and we need your participation and support.
CHNA won the NYS Preservation Award
