About Us

The West 69th Street Block Association was organized by its residents in June 1969 and is one of the oldest block associations in New York City. All residents of West 69th Street between Central Park West and Broadway become members when they move onto the street. Membership is free, there are no dues, instead we depend on the generosity of our residents and friends.

While W. 69th Street is known as one of the prettiest streets on the Upper West Side, it is its strong sense community which the block association fosters that makes it truly special.

COVID-19 Info Hub

We have joined with other Lincoln Square Block Associations to create the COVID-19 Info Hub for residents. In addition to health, safety and government information, we also provide lists of businesses where you may shop, order take-out or delivery, and volunteer to assist in the community’s response to the current needs of our neighbors.


If you are a current resident of W. 69th Street you can join our private Facebook group (“W. 69th St. Block Association”).
