    No BID seems to work!

    Edwin Cosme August 14, 2019 at 7:56 pm Are you kidding me currently there are 76 BID’s throughout NYC and not one not one since it inception in 1981 has been voted on to dissolved and many of us are beginning to understand why – the fact is that once the BID is formed its pretty much up to the executive committee for each of its prospective BID to vote to dissolve and we do all know that this will never happen because in doing so they literally vote themselves out of an income and job. Another form of Taxation Without Representation! Everything is already structured in such a way…

    Will a BID fill these empty stores?

    3rd ave has a large number of empty stores – this does not look good for a neighborhood – in the span of 4 blocks we noticed 1 block almost devoid of life – empty stores stood out like tombstones. Will a BID fill these stores? 5th ave spent $5 million and counting and they have almost same number of empty stores. A BID is a tax that provides no benefits

    3rd ave is clean!

    We just walked along 3rd ave from 75st to 81 st. We found the streets to be spotless, the sidewalks bright and clean and no garbage flowing out of the pails or filth stains on the side walk – UNLIKE 5th ave! If 3rd ave is as clean as the pictures show, than why do we need to spend more money on “cleaning services”? 5th ave is FILTHY compared to 3rd ave and they spent $5 Million Dollars and counting! Compare to Filthy 5th ave with an expensive BID!
