DOWNTOWN — Longtime lower Manhattan resident and community board member Harold Reed has died at the age of 75.

CB1 Chairwoman Catherine McVay Hughes called Reed, who for many years acted as chairman of the board’s arts and entertainment task force, a “cherished and esteemed colleague” in an email sent out to community members announcing the news of his passing Thursday.

A cremation and ceremony was held for Reed in Hong Kong Friday, or Thursday at 11:45 a.m. New York time, the same day he would have turned 76.

McVay Hughes said details about a stateside memorial service have not yet been made available.
