Hello! We’re a 127-year-old organization helping create equitable cities through inclusive design. In an equitable city, communities are engaged in the conception and creation of their built environment, regardless of income or personal circumstances. Community-driven decision-making builds resilience, social infrastructure, and ultimately, more just cities.

Van Alen Block Party

Corner of Bond St and Sackett St
Free and open to the public

Join us to celebrate our new Gowanus community at our first ever Block Party! We’ll transform a stretch of Sackett Street into a joyful party bringing together Gowanus residents, local organizations, and our network of designers and urbanists. It’ll be a day full of musical performances, live DJs, family-friendly activities, and locally-sourced food and drinks.
