The West 68th Street Block Association has been in existence since the 1970s, when it was formed to spearhead initiatives to add trees to the block, and manage a community garden. The organization’s purpose is to foster and promote a better quality of life for our community. Membership is open to all residents and business owners on the street. We hold annual beautification events to plant flowers in the tree pits lining the street, as well as other social events.
We hope this blog will serve as a central location for sharing all that we love about the block as well as ways to continue to improve it.
