Block Party NYC: Get Yourself a Block Grant

Get to know your neighbors. See how differently your block can look. Experience what it's like not having to worry about your children playing in the street. It's Block Party NYC.

This summer the NYC Streets Renaissance is helping to throw dozens of block parties throughout New York City. Don't wait. Apply for a Block Grant today.

The idea behind Block Party NYC is to help neighbors build consensus around the value of reduced car traffic on neighborhood streets. These events will be traditional New York City block parties but with experts on hand to talk with residents about building greener, safer neighborhood streets and to begin drawing up new street designs that better suit community needs.
