Celebrating 25 years
Once upon a time, 25 years ago, in March, the Sunset Park Business Improvement District was created. It was created with a mission in mind. The mission was to improve the shopping corridor and enhance life for the community. Graffiti was out of control in the Sunset Park area. The BID has eliminated more than 75 percent of the graffiti.
The Sunset Park 5th ave Street Festival has been going on since 1999 and has only been canceled once. Every year since the beginning, it has brought many people from all over to celebrate the end of summer. Summer Walks & Plazas bring some block party type atmosphere in August to the designated streets on 5th ave. Our Holiday lights, tree, and free trolley bring much joy to all.
Thank you all for being apart! Raise a glass in a toast to another 25 years!
