Block Party Information

Are you planning a block party? Make sure you leave yourself enough time to organize the event. Applications must be filed 90 days in advance.

Applying for a block party is a two-step process. You need to fill out an online application by visiting the city's Street Activity Permit office. You must provide the CB6 district office with either a letter from the affected block association, or the signatures of 20 residents who live on the block, to demonstrate to us that they've consented to the block closure.
