About Us

SOCCC (Save Our Community Center CHARAS – PS 64) is a committee dedicated to returning the Community Center known as CHARAS/El Bohio, formerly PS 64, to the East Village neighborhood.

In 2001, the building at 905 East 9th Street was sold to a private developer for below market value. Since that time, the building has been vacant, left to decay, and the owner has failed to provide upkeep for the safety of its neighbors.

This committee is working to have Mayor De Blasio restore ownership to an organization, like CHARAS/El Bohio, that will better the East Village, in lieu of having it become a useless eyesore as its current owners are content to have it.
