(p.164) Chapter 7 Cooperation and Conflict in a Block Association
Norman Street

Ida Susser

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the history, activities, and problems of the Norman Street Block Association, which was but one attempt by residents of Norman Street to influence their environment. In three years of interaction with the residents of Greenpoint–Williamsburg, the author collected a mass of data which testified to the frequent involvement in collective action of working-class poor in urban areas. Although seldom successful and often not long-lasting, such persistent efforts to control the environment were a significant feature of low-income life.

Keywords:   Norman Street Block Association, Greenpoint–Williamsburg, collective action, working-class poor, low-income life
