It's Time for a Change in 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  tomorrow on Thursday, June 18 at Taino Towers Gymnasium 240 East 123rd Street at 6 pm.


Small Business Owners Night

As part of Small Business First, Experts from NYC Department of Buildings in association with NYC Small Business Services Provide One-on-One Guidance to Small Business Owners

Small Business Owners Nights will be scheduled from 4:00pm to 7:00pm every Tuesday at the Department of Buildings’ Borough Office in all five boroughs. Small business owners can visit their local borough office to get one-on-one advice from NYC Department of Buildings experts on issues related to their new or existing building applications.

During the weekly Small Business Owners’ Night, services include:

  • Recommendations on steps to take when planning to create new space or renovate existing space;
  • Advice on business construction plans, including the permitting process;
  • Direction on how to secure or amend a property’s Certificate of Occupancy;
  • Information about the status of their existing Buildings’ application;
  • Instructions on how to resolve Department-issued violations;
  • Guidelines on what to expect during an inspection;
  • Guidance on using the Buildings Information System (BIS) to search property history and permit information.

    No advance appointment is required to receive this support. Small business owners are invited to simply visit their local Department of Buildings’ borough office and meet with a plan examiner or other Department professional to answer questions. Representatives from Small Business Services will also be available for assistance.

    Small Business Owners are encouraged to take advantage of these cost-free opportunities to consult with Department professionals. The Department of Buildings understands the challenges local businesses face and these sessions intend to support the small business community through education. For licensing requirements, inspection protocol, or review processes associated with other agencies, business owners must contact each agency directly.
