The Historic Yorkshire Alliance was created by residents and business owners in the Yorkshire Neighborhood of the City, bounded by High and Broad Streets, the Assicunk Creek and the Delaware River. Founded under the auspices of the City's Neighborhood Preservation Program and the NJ Department of Community Affairs, the Alliance works to sustain the historic beauty and value of the neighborhood, and build identity, pride and a sense of community among residents. At the 1995 State Conference for Neighborhood Preservation, the Alliance won the "Neighborhood Organization of the Year" award.
The Alliance meets the second Wednesday of every month except August and January, in the cafeteria of the Captain James Lawrence School. Meetings include information and education programs and guest speakers, and the Alliance also sponsors community events through the year, including an annual neighborhood yard sale and a holiday home decorating contest. Membership is free, and open to all residents and organizations in the Yorkshire neighborhood.
