LETS JOIN TOGETHER TO CREATE A BETTER, STRONGER NEIGHBORHOOD VOICE
What do you think about a single neighborhood organization to represent northern Prospect Heights?
Dean Street Block Association would like to create a single neighborhood association that includes St. Marks, Carlton, and 6th Avenues, as well as Bergen, Dean and Pacific Streets. This is a special area with shared issues. We have a history of working together successfully.
In a neighborhood, legitimate representation requires genuine consultation and participation. We believe local civic organizations should be guided by their members, act transparently, and communicate openly and honestly. Please join us to discuss this idea as a way to more strongly advocate for our community and its shared issues and concerns.
Date: Monday, May 14th
Location: Community Room at 506 Bergen St, Latin Evangelical Free Church

Few NYC neighborhoods are as affected by development as our own. Vertical construction at Atlantic Yards / Pacific Park has been stalled for a year and a half, and future ownership is uncertain.
Raise your questions and concerns with the city’s Comptroller Scott M. Stringer, one of only three directly elected citywide officials in New York City. Among the Comptroller’s roles is reviewing city contracts for integrity, accountability and fiscal compliance. In February, Comptroller Stringer issued an audit of HPD calling for it to develop its vacant city owned properties into affordable housing.
What are the potential options forward for Pacific Park project and two HPD lots also now being considered for affordable housing projects?
What should our goals be?
Please join us on April 16th for a meeting with the New York City Comptroller. The meeting will occur at 7:30pm and location is TBD.
