Business improvement districts are known for helping out small businesses in their respective areas - and these achievements were honored through outreach events across the five boroughs on Monday.
"We really want to highlight today is that there are 75 BIDs all throughout New York City. They cover 300 miles of commercial corridor and they've infused $194 million every year into the economy. And so, we want to really highlight that. We want people to be proud of that,” said Kevin Kim, commissioner of the NYC Small Business Services.
