UPTOWN BLOCK PARTY
There has not been a block party in this area of Uptown for more than 4 decades.
PSPNY/MU4BLNYC changed that on July 29th, 2023. We had an incredible event! There were games, arts and crafts tables, a 360 photo booth, cotton candy, a huge water slide, and a bouncy house for the children. Plenty of great home-made food and grilled food was cooked by community members.
We had wonderful raffle giveaways and worked with CBOs (Community-based Organizations) including Corbin Hill, AQE, Black Voices Matter, and Word Up Bookstore to bring resources and education to the community. This event was supported by Council Member Carmen De La Rosa. We gave a laptop to an innocent former incarcerated Black man. We gave away 100 book bags with school supplies to students in our community. It was an amazing day!
Thank you to all our donors and volunteers who helped make this a great wonderful event.
