Attention 14Y Members: Please note that 14Y’s building will be closed on Wednesday, June 19th, for an important facilities upgrade, in addition to our previously announced program closures for Juneteenth.


The 14th Street Y is part of Educational Alliance’s network of community centers in Downtown Manhattan.

Educational Alliance (EA), one of New York City’s original settlement houses, was founded in 1889 to offer educational, social, and cultural services to immigrants arriving to the Lower East Side. Today, EA is a proudly Jewish institution that partners with the diverse communities throughout Lower Manhattan. We provide New Yorkers with high-quality, transformational programs that enhance their well-being and socio-economic opportunities, reflecting our belief that everyone in our city should be given the tools to thrive. Join us as we pave the way for more generations of New Yorkers to lead enriched and fulfilling lives.
