Applications must be filed at least 60 days in advance. Applying for a block party is a two-step process:
Step 1) Fill out an online application by visiting the City's Street Activity Permit office. You will need to pay a fee using a credit card.
Step 2) Provide the CB6 District Office with either a letter from the affected block association, or signatures of 20 residents who live on the block, to demonstrate that they've consented to the block closure. You can mail us your list, fax it (718) 624-8410, or email a scanned copy to officemanager (at) brooklyncb6 (dot) org.
Your permit may be marked as "denied" if you have not delivered your signatures to the District Office. Once we receive those signatures we will revisit the application.
