Updated Columbus Avenue Map & Guide on Press

We visited our printer, FLM Graphics, to check on the new edition of the Columbus Avenue Map & Guide. Copies will be available from many Columbus Avenue merchants, as well as the American Museum of Natural History and New-York Historical Society. Merchants interested in copies of the map to distribute in-store should contact the BID.

Visit our Streetscape Block

Be sure to stop by our streetscape block between W.76th and W.77th Streets. The mature trees and plantings make it a veritable oasis, shading the sidewalk and benches, and making the block among the most comfortable places on Columbus Avenue to eat, catch up with a friend, or just people watch.
