Neighborhood Development & Community Engagement
When we look at our communities, we don’t just see customers, we see our neighbors. We take pride in our New York neighborhoods, so we want to do more than provide reliable, quality service. That is why we are providing lasting support in the form of investment in local organizations, volunteer initiatives, community planning, neighborhood impact programs, community outreach, New York restoration projects and more.
