Block Party NYC 2008

Block Party NYC is the fusion of a good old-fashioned block party with a community-led design session.

Look for parties all around the city that will help neighbors envision a better (and more fun!) street—a street that works for the people who live there, not just for the ones driving through.

  1. Throw a party on your street!
    Check back here for resources.
  2. Attend parties in your neighborhood...or all around the city.
    Check back for updates and a calendar of citywide parties.
  3. Apply for a mini-grant
    Mini-grant applications are now being accepted. The mini-grant package includes:
    • Funding to apply for a street closing permit
    • Professional support to help you plan for your event
    • Resources for kicking off a design session for your block

Fill out an application. Send it in. Be the visionary who brings neigborhood life back to a neighborhood street.


From the team that brought the internationally acclaimed Park(ing) Day to New York City, comes a new effort aimed squarely at you, your neighbors, and your street. Block Party NYC is organized by the New York City Streets Renaissance, a city-wide campaign for livable, people-friendly streets.
