Join our Jane’s Walk! Navigate & Advocate: How to Use 311 to Make Your Neighborhood Better! 3pm Sat May 4

NYC 311 service requests are the key to reporting conditions and accessing services provided by the City of New York. From filling potholes to planting empty tree beds, fixing broken street lights or stopping illegal construction, the city’s response depends on your 311 requests.

Over the course of just a few East Village blocks, we’ll identify several opportunities for service requests. We’ll demonstrate how to report different types of issues and work effectively with your neighbors to have them addressed. We’ll also explore the open data sets associated with these requests, so you can track the city’s response to what you’ve reported, and compare your neighborhood to others. Join us to help make your neighborhood better, step by step! Learn more and Register!
