BID Celebrates Local Women In Business and Leadership

In honor of Women's History Month, the Bay Ridge 5th Ave BID has been featuring some of the district’s women-owned businesses, employees, managers, and non-profit leaders.

This month we celebrate our Mothers, Daughters, and Sisters and their immense, yet often unrecognized and underappreciated contributions to humankind. Let’s meet a few of 5th Ave’s best!
