“Alley Action” is a grass roots movement focusing on “Increasing the quality of neighborhood life by providing inspiration and guidance to accomplish alley improvement projects.” This movement is funded through a grant from the Lewis and Hortense Rubin Foundation, as well as support in kind from neighborhood organizations and local businesses.
We are seven professionals who live and work in Troy, NY. We volunteer our time and energy, our creativity and spirit to the improvement of Troy’s alleys. With several successful projects under our collective belts, we’ve discovered it’s more than just alleys.
We believe that neighbors working together can improve their community’s safety, appearance and quality of life by taking pride in ownership of their alleys and streets. We hope you will be inspired to set forth and accomplish such projects in your communities.
