Housing Help & Listening to Thoughts on Sara Roosevelt Park Upgrades

The Offerings:

Beautiful accurate Map of this section of the Park via NYC Parks Department to write our thoughts about.


“Housing court help”, “keep  your families home” “voter rights” “civic engagment” “Avoiding eviction” “ways to reduce rent arrears”, “Know your rights – tenant protections”, Tenant repair rights, “What is Fair Housing?”!


The Community

some wandered through, others came full of purpose, small business owners, residents, sports players, gardeners, passersby, martial artists.

The Elected Reps, our Community Organizations and all our volunteers and staff!

For lending their weight, know-how, minds and hearts and tons of information on housing rights, test kits, masks and more!!
