MHCC Health and Safety Committee

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Oscar Hijuelos was raised at 419 West 121st Street. His landmark novel “The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love” was set in Morningside Heights.

Recent real estate development projects have raised concerns about conditions at local construction sites.

The MHCC Health and Safety Committee gathers and disseminates information on these issues and the overall safety of Morningside Heights. Below in an overview of this effort.

You can engage with fellow community members on existing or potential concerns through the Committee’s Facebook page.
