The Bay Ridge 5th Avenue BID, Council-Member Justin Brannan, Community Board 10, an Age-Friendly Committee partner, is proud to promote senior discounts on 5th Avenue. We thank our local participating businesses for their generosity and support of Bay Ridge’s finest and most seasoned residents!
Arts On The Avenue
Over the next 3 years, the Bay Ridge 5th Ave BID, in partnership with local artists and merchants, will launch a series of public art projects. The art will utilize existing surfaces along this busy commercial corridor and will make walking along the 5th Ave BID an exciting cultural experience for both residents and visitors alike. Arts on the Avenue will provide an infusion of arts and culture while convening a community of local artists to work on projects highlighting their skills and talents. These projects will add to the Avenue’s sense of place, increase foot traffic, bring more business to small mom and pop shops, and build bridges between all the diverse communities of Bay Ridge.
Legacy businesses have been part of our corridor for as much as a century. The cultural richness of our neighborhood is evident in the wide range of services and products that can be found on 5th avenue.
Bay Ridge Tours will highlight the district’s commercial richness and encourage residents and visitors to walk into the business and interact with the owners. The tours also provide a free marketing opportunity, allowing businesses to tell their stories and market their services to a wide audience.
Community Photo Share
In an effort to better understand the strengths and opportunities in Bay Ridge’s commercial environment, the 5th Avenue BID is putting a call out to residents to participate in a community photo share and engagement workshop. We are asking residents to photograph life on Bay Ridge’s vibrant shopping corridors (3rd Ave, 4th Ave, 5th Ave, 86th St, etc). Photo subjects might include:
Favorite businesses or business owners
