Mapping the Park:

Victoria and Lulama marked the areas that had a lot of debris and had missing trees and empty spots:


Audubon Society & PS 126 are Building an Indigenous Plants Garden for Birds

Audubon, SDR Coalition and PS 126 teamed up to rejuvenate the Audubon plot on the West Side of Delancey Street plot and planted daffodils in empty tree pits.

5th Precinct: Community Policing Returns (Thankfully!!)

The 5th Precinct was out in force last night to present the new Neighborhood Coordination Officers (NCO) – a welcome return to the concept of neighborhood policing.

From the website:

A New Patrol Paradigm

“The cornerstone of today’s NYPD is Neighborhood Policing, a comprehensive crime-fighting strategy built on improved communication and collaboration between local police officers and community residents. Neighborhood Policing greatly increases connectivity and engagement with the community without diminishing, and, in fact, improving the NYPD’s crime-fighting capabilities.

The NYPD has long encouraged officers to strengthen bonds with the communities they patrol, but past practice in precincts left little time or opportunity for true community engagement. In recent years, the Patrol Services Bureau has systematically reorganized its patrol methods to achieve the goal of establishing Neighborhood Policing in every precinct, citywide, by 2019.”


Each NCO introduced themselves personally: heartfelt, welcoming and seeming eager to join with the community in keeping our neighborhood safe and connected.

Our local [Sector “B”] NCO‘s are:

PO Enrique Urena:  Phone: (929) 334-9607

PO Joesph Bozzo: Phone: (917) 455-0917

We are very glad to have them patrolling the entire Park and its surrounding area. We look forward to partnering with them and the 5th Precinct.

Soon there will be local Build a Block Meeting just for our ‘Sector’, Sector B, Check link for scheduling.
