Policies

Welcome to Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN)! We appreciate your involvement with the country’s largest community media center and look forward to welcoming you to our facilities, our channels, our classes and our events.

MNN’s mission is to ensure the ability of Manhattan residents to exercise their First Amendment rights through moving image media to create opportunities for communication, education, artistic expression and other noncommercial uses of video facilities on an open and equitable basis.

In providing services, we seek to involve the diverse racial, ethnic and geographic communities of Manhattan in the electronic communication of their varied interests, needs, concerns and identities.

MNN is responsible for administering public access cable TV services in Manhattan and aims to promote localism, diversity and independent non-commercial media.

MNN is an independent, non-profit organization that is privately funded and privately operated. MNN is not a cable company, a subsidiary of any cable company, or a New York City or New York State agency.

These documents outline policies that apply to all MNN community members, visitors and staff at both our 59th. St. Studios and El Barrio Firehouse.

If you have any questions about these policies, please email info@mnn.org.
