Call to Action for East Harlem

East Harlem is a diverse & vibrant community, and it's about time that we tackle the significant issues that have plagued our area. Everyone that works and lives here has seen our sidewalk filled with litter and urine, drug use, unsafe & disrupting conditions. We have finally hit the roof; enough is enough.Please join us in our mission to finally put an end to these deplorable conditions that we have to face daily.

Let us stand up and make a change to our community. Come to the Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, June 18 at Taino Towers Gymnasium24 East 123rd Street at 6 pm.


Community Workshop:Harlem River Bridges Access Plan

The NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) is ready to hear from the community on their plans to improve the pedestrian and bicycle connections on and to the Harlem River Bridges that connect Manhattan and the Bronx.
They will be hosting a series of workshops in both boroughs to discuss intersections, corridors and bridges that could use safety and mobility improvements. The result of this effort will be a Harlem River Bridges Access Plan report, which will describe community preferences for improving neighborhood access to parks, schools, and commercial areas on both sides of the river. The report will be used to guide future investment and seek additional funding for short- and long-term transportation enhancement projects. The primary focus of the study will be to develop short- and long-term improvements at intersections near bridge ramps and along corridors connecting bridges to major destinations for pedestrians and cyclists.
To be part of this discussion join DOT :
on Monday, June 15 at Taino Towers 221 East 122nd Street (btw 2nd and 3rd Avenues) @ 6:30 p.m. 

And on Monday, June 22 at Wilson Major Morrie Community Center 459 West 152nd Street @ 6:30 p.m.
