Lincoln Square Business Improvement District
We work closely with the Lincoln Square Business Improvement District which has primary responsibility for the Malls between 60th and 70th Streets.
Community League of the Heights (CLOTH)
Since 1952, the Community League of the Heights has been dedicated to the improvement of the quality of life for residents of the southern Washington Heights area. The Broadway Mall Association began this partnership 3 years ago, after a survey revealed how concerned merchants and business people from Washington Heights were about the condition of the malls above 135th Street. BMA was happy to partner with CLOTH to start a grass roots effort to inform the community about ways that they could get involved. We went door to door to raise funds to light many of the blocks uptown. Out of this effort grew the Broadway Uptown Business (BUB) group and we are looking for additional ways to partner with them to keep Broadway clean and in bloom.
Best known for the beloved “men in blue” of its Ready, Willing & Able (RWA) program, The Doe Fund is one of New York City’s leading human services providers for homeless and formerly incarcerated people. Since 2003, these hardworking individuals — who can be seen each day in their trademark blue uniforms, cleaning 150 miles of city streets — have been providing horticultural maintenance, supplemental sanitation, and watering services to the Broadway Mall landscape. This paid transitional work is the first step these individuals take in RWA, a holistic program that also offers safe, secure, drug-free housing; comprehensive support services; occupational training; and educational opportunities. Participants “graduate” from RWA when they have obtained permanent, full-time employment, maintained their sobriety, and have secured self-supported housing, returning to their communities as taxpaying, responsible citizens and to their families as contributing parents.
