After many years of effort and fun, I'm turning over the reins and stepping back from the responsibilities of the Jane Street Block Association. I want to take this opportunity, first, to thank all the people who over the years have worked so hard keeping us in the forefront of the community.
Read about the early days of the JSBA in this Times article from May 2, 1972
Secondly, I want to ask you all, members, neighbors and friends, to continue to carry on the work with Kate, Marianne and Cynthia - competent people who care deeply about our community and will advocate on behalf of your interests. That's all for now, I'll be seeing you around the block.
The Jane Street Block Association was founded in 1970 and incorporated as a 501❨c❩4 in 1980. We are a grassroots organization of neighbors working to preserve and enhance community engagement and quality of life for our street. In addition, the JSBA pays for care of our street trees, the planted "Triangle" at Jane/W. 4th/8th ave among other greening projects and assists in the stewardship of the Jane Street Garden. We organize a street fair each year in early summer ( Saturday after Memorial Day) to raise funds to support our goals. We hold an Annual Meeting in the fall. All officers are volunteers, and the budget comes solely from dues and donations. Please join us and subscribe to our newsletter.
Kate Bostock, Chair & Treasurer

Elaine Young, a longtime officer of the JSBA, died in 2018 and is dearly missed.
And thanks to Miriam Sarzin for many years of newsletters!
