The Upper West Side Coalition of Block Associations & Community Groups was formed in 2021 when a dozen block associations came together to create an umbrella organization to help community groups form and thrive. Block Associations and community groups unite neighbors to beautify our blocks, solve local issues and support programs like composting and recycling. We recognize that we all benefit from diverse and inclusive neighborhoods and we are committed to creating an open and welcoming environment for all members of the community. The more we connect with each other, the stronger we will be.

The UWS Coalition and Goddard Riverside co-sponsored the Fall Forum for Seniors on Tuesday, October 17th. More than 120 people filled the room at Goddard Community Center for a program of esteemed speakers. The hybrid technology employed by the Goddard team deserves a special shout-out for making the Coalition’s first in-person meeting a great success.
