Cherry Blossom Festival 2012
The 2012 Cherry Blossom Festival was a success for the organizers at Historic Wooster Sq Association and for the Block Watch and Friends of Wooster Sq who had a table there. FOWS raised $153 for the dog park and Block Watch met many new and prospective neighbors!

There is a great new project underway to brighten up the overpass that breaks up the neighborhoods of Upper State Street and Jocelyn Square. The organizers need community support to get it completed! If this project takes off, they are willing to spread the project to the Wooster Square neighborhood to tackle the overpass on Grand Avenue that divides our area. Please consider donating today!

Within 12 months of establishing the Wooster Square Block Watch, residents were able to celebrate the installation of solar street lights on the Court Street Bridge. The new lights improved safety and dramatically cut the number of muggings in the area.
