19-Jackson Heights BID Touts New Look

City Small Businesses Services Commissioner Robert Walsh said the 82nd Street Business Improvement District has a new name and a new sanitation contract as part of the ongoing campaign to turn the organization, and the business strip it serves, around.

To solve the street’s trash and graffiti problems, the board hired Block by Block to remove graffiti and plant and water trees. Walsh said the sanitation workers will have 82nd Street logos and will be a visible presence in the district.
