Thank you for supporting Block Party.


Block Party is a public archive of community board meetings that can be used to explore what is discussed throughout New York City at a local level. The project began in 2020 as civic engagement became virtually accessible and meetings were published on YouTube. The project automatically transcribes public meetings by leveraging AI and NLP. This enables the community to stay informed with short summaries of the community meetings. For free, Block Party sends weekly newsletters with meeting highlights to give community members insight into the civic discourse.
