The Upper West Side Coalition 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 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.
