Parents and Children

Over the last 5 years, The Harlem Neighborhood Block Association has taken on a number of issues (large and small) to improve the quality of life for residents in the East Harlem Triangle.

One small, but significant victory was the result of collaboration with neighborhood parents and schools to persuade the Department of Education to move the fence on IS 201 out from the school’s core, in order to eliminate the homeless encampments that children and their parents had to navigate around in order to attend school. In addition, children attending IS 201 have also benefited from a larger safe space for recess and after-school play.
