BedStuy Works Alliance of Block and Resident Associations

Bed Stuy Works Alliance Logo

The BedStuy Works Alliance of Block and Tenant Associations began in 2010 as a small collaborative of block and tenant groups. The alliance is the result of the dynamic partnership between the Bedford-Stuyvesant Youth, Education, and Safety Task Force and the Bridge Street Development Corporation. Both groups had the common long-term goal to strengthen and galvanize block and tenant associations for the purpose of establishing a unified voice that would:

  • Identify issues that impact tenants and homeowners
  • Provide a forum for common concerns
  • Generate ideas that would contribute to the ongoing revitalization of Bedford-Stuyvesant
  • Advocate for improvements/change in a cohesive and proactive manner
  • Strengthen existing civic initiatives such as the Community Board and the 79th and 81st Precinct Councils
  • Improve police-community relations in order to maximize safety services throughout the neighborhood
