A Place Called Home
So Just What is The Brownstone?
Set in a six-story space in Manhattan’s buzzing East Village, The Brownstone brings together Jewish college students and young professionals — no pressure, just opportunity.
Hosting tens of thousands of young Jews since opening its doors in 2012, The Brownstone NY makes New York City feel just a little bit smaller.
We partner with local, national and international organizations to create joint programming or host in-house events.
