On the Boulevard
From The Director:
This month the BID celebrates 5 years in existence. In those five years the BID has maintained the streets cleaner than ever, worked with NYPD and private security to keep the district safe and expanded the marketing efforts as a result of receiving a grant from New York City Department of Small Business Services (SBS).
Throughout the summer, the BID sponsored 4 successful Sidewalk Sales days. On August 24 the BID sponsored a Back to School Sidewalk Sale with games and prizes. The BID also gave away 300 book bags. Well Care participated in the Sidewalk Sale giving away hundreds of book bags as well. Stores report a sharp increase in sales on those days. Store owners are actually trying to increase the number of Sidewalk Sales days throughout the year. Merchants are working with the Community Board #2 to get the City to soften regulations on Southern Boulevard thereby allowing stores to display merchandise three feet in front of the stores. Currently the Boulevard has a zero visibility policy. More
