Ms. Janet Owens, NEBRA President


Adequately termed as “The New Manhattan” Brooklyn has experienced extensive development and a massive influx of new residents. This has left many downtown Brooklyners asking one important question, “How do I get to know my new neighbors?”. With that, many successful, black professionals have recently relocated to sixteen, Brooklyn skyscrapers including The HUB, AVA DoBro, 388 Bridge Street, 250 Ashland, 590 Fulton, City Tower I, 66 Rockwell, 120 Nassau Street, Dekalb Brooklyn, Brooklyn Air, Avalon Fort Greene, 250 Ashland, 300 Ashland (BAM South), 461 Dean, 436 Albee Square and 86 Fleet all within the last three (3) years!


Because of this extensive new growth, NEBRA was created as a residential block association to help bring a sense of community to black professionals living in these new skyscrapers. We create an opportunity to meet, network, socialize, party, travel and empower one another through NEBRA. We have created the “ultimate black experience” for those who appreciate  black excellence.
