St. Nicks Alliance is a nonprofit, non-sectarian community development organization celebrating 40 years of community development in North Brooklyn. It all started in 1975 when a group of determined residents and business people committed themselves to fight the climate of decline in North Brooklyn. Hence St. Nicks Alliance emerged at the forefront of a nationwide grassroots movement to preserve and improve neighborhoods.
