BRONX — In order to better serve his constituents beyond the hours of 9-5, New York City Council Member Andy King and his staff will be hosting “Constituent Services Night” every other week at a different NYCHA housing development in the 12th Council District, beginning next week Tuesday, March 24th.


“I believe it’s important to meet with NYCHA residents in their developments because it gives me the opportunity to see things up close and first hand, as well as show my constituents that their representative in city government cares about their community and will bring their concerns to management,” said Council Member Andy King, co-chair of the Black, Latino & Asian Caucus of the New York City Council.


There are five NYCHA housing developments in the 12th District. They are Gun Hill Houses, Baychester Houses, Boston Secor, Eastchester Gardens and Edenwald. The first location will be in the Gun Hill Houses’ community room, from 6 – 8 p.m. Services will include resources and solutions for housing, food stamps, immigration, Access-A-Ride and basic services.


Earlier this year, Council Member King and the Safety Net Project at the Urban Justice Center hosted a series of “Know Your Rights” workshops in the NYCHA facilities.


NYCHA residents can preschedule an appointment by calling the Office of Council Member Andy King at (718) 684-5509.
