United Neighbors of

Prospect & Crown Heights

United Neighbors of Prospect and Crown Heights (UNPCH) is a grassroots group of neighbors, first responders and small businesses working together to find an equitable solution to shared street usage in the Prospect and Crown Heights community.  The DOT’s recent redesign of Underhill Avenue, which we believe to be unnecessary, has introduced a host of problematic issues to the residents, public school and businesses along its corridor and in the neighboring blocks. In addition, the ongoing  Vanderbilt Open Streets project has had a deleterious effect on businesses and residents both on Vanderbilt and adjoining streets. These aggressive street closures have caused unprecedented traffic congestion on Atlantic and Washington Avenues as well as the side streets. We are calling on the DOT, Mayor’s office and our elected reps to come together and help us negotiate a solution that works for the community at large.

Take Action!
