At the start of the pandemic, active memberships were frozen on March 16, 2020 in an effort to reduce population density in public spaces and slow the spread of the Coronavirus. These frozen memberships have also been reactivated, with the number of days remaining on active memberships when the center closed added to the reopening date.

CCSHS membership questions? Please contact (646) 210-4292, (212) 267-9700, or email communitycenter@bpca.ny.gov.

It’s been a challenging two years in lower Manhattan, but the downtown community has proven strong and resilient once again! We look forward to seeing you at CCSHS and serving our small part in promoting the well-being of your greater Battery Park City community.
