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.

"Well organized block associations, like so many on the West Side, enhance their neighborhood's sense of community engagement. The community board is indebted to them for bringing issues to our attention, providing support on constituent services, and getting the word out on so many issues, large and small."

Beverly Donohue, Chair, Community Board 7
