The Gramercy Park Block Association
World Trade Center Relief Effort


On September 11th, 2001, our world and our lives were changed forever. The Gramercy Park Block Association was privileged to help in the days and months following September 11th. Our relief effort included preparing and serving thousands of meals at the 13th Precinct command center, providing shelter and distributing critical supplies to our police, fire and emergency units, and to hundreds of visiting police, fire and rescue units who poured into New York from around the country to assist and support workers at Ground Zero.
