The Havemeyer Street Group was formed by concerned citizens and merchants with the goal of improving and beautifying the streets of the South Side of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Our first project, the Model Merchant Block Project, is funded by Citizens Committee for New York City. The project involves building tree guards and planting native plants in the tree wells.

Will first opened NYC Bikes in the basement of 182 Havemeyer in 1994 and has been at his current location, 140 Havemeyer, since 1999. Early on, he was a commuting biker, riding to a day job. He started fixing and making bikes for friends and then decided to turn his hobby into a business.
"Havemeyer is a gorgeous block with gorgeous trees. I think it would be so much better if we, as community members, recognize that and kept it up that way. We need less trash amd more flowers and so the Havemeyer Street Movement is one that I am happy to be proud of."
