Our vision for Park West Village
Remember why you moved here? Large, affordable apartments, trees, Central Park, views, and the diverse population of neighbors who could become a personal universe of good friends! All this and more has made Park West Village a very special place.
The Park West Village Tenants' Association has worked to create a vision of the PWV community that’s manifested in our lives here today. We provide helpful information, protect your rights, and connect with other advocacy groups and local elected officials to resolve issues of common concern.
Your participation is welcomed too — JOIN US!
