OPEN STREETS: AMSTERDAM

Our Open Streets NYC permit allows us to block vehicular traffic on Amsterdam Avenue, between 110th and 111th Streets, on Saturdays and Sundays.  This supports our shops and restaurants and provides space for leisure and occasional gatherings (Yoga classes?  Movie nights?  Let us know what you think.)

We hold monthly activities to check in with neighbors and keep the block clean, safe, and livable.

We also hold larger quarterly events to keep our community momentum going.

Our inaugural tour was held in March 2021 and was a big success, attracting dozens of neighbors who contributed to our collective narrative.  This event will get better each year.
