Connect with neighbors, learn about our history, get updates from local media and use our What’s Open EV map for local shopping and resources.

The EVCC supports local efforts for sustainability and human-powered transportation. 

The Lower East Side Ecology Center is our go-to for electronics recycling and more. We’ll be sure to let you know about their next event in Tompkins Square Park!

Visit Loisaida United Neighborhood Gardens for a map and upcoming events at our wonderful community gardens.

EVCC is member of LESReady, a network of local organizations who came together after Hurricane Sandy and continue to work to help our neighborhood recover and prepare for emergency events.

Community input on the issues that affect our neighborhood starts with our Community Board. To find out about the latest meeting topics and dates visit Community Board 3.
