111Provide Feedback for M23 Crosstown Select Bus Service

Provide Feedback for M23 Crosstown Select Bus Service

Crosstown bus trips along 23rd Street are often slow and unreliable. The NYC Department of Transportation (NYC DOT) and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) are working to bring improved bus speed, comfort, and reliability to the corridor by implementing Select Bus Service (SBS) along the M23 bus route. With 15,000 daily passengers, the M23 is an important crosstown route that connects passengers to neighborhoods, schools, shopping, and job centers; as well as multiple subway, bus routes, and PATH trains.  

NYC DOT and the MTA want to hear from you about the challenges you face with crosstown travel on 23rd Street and where improvements are needed along the M23 route.

111Blizzard Warning in Effect for New York City

Blizzard Warning in Effect for New York City

Mayor de Blasio has declared a citywide Winter Weather Emergency, beginning on Saturday, January 23 at 8:00 a.m.

The current forecast calls for 12-18 inches of snow, potentially creating slippery roads and limited visibility. Sustained winds of 25-30 mph are forecast, with gusts of up to 50 mph possible. Temperatures in the high 20s are expected, with visibilities of one quarter mile or less at times.

Trash and recycling collection are both suspended for Saturday, January 23. Please keep trash inside and off sidewalks until snow removal operations have been completed.  Check DSNY's website for all official announcements.

Tomorrow, the BID's Clean Team, contracted through Atlantic Maintenance, will be out in the neighborhood spreading salt and shoveling snow to clear pedestrian paths on the Flatiron Public Plazas, as well as clearing crosswalks and catch basins at intersections throughout the district. If you see them, don't forget to thank them for their hard work! 

Not sure if you’re obligated to shovel in front of your building? Click here for DSNY’s Guide to Snow Removal and Snow Operations FAQs.

Stay safe and warm!

111HOME-STAT – Homeless Outreach & Mobile Engagement Street Action Teams

HOME-STAT – Homeless Outreach & Mobile Engagement Street Action Teams

Last month, Mayor de Blasio announced the creation of HOME-STAT - Homeless Outreach & Mobile Engagement Street Action Teams - to better and more quickly respond to the City's street homelessness problem.

The initiative partners with existing homeless response and prevention programs through a series of new initiatives designed to better identify, engage, and transition homeless New Yorkers to appropriate services and, ultimately, permanent housing.

HOME-STAT is the most comprehensive street homelessness outreach effort ever deployed in a major American city. HOME-STAT is funded from within existing resources at DHS, so no new dollars are necessary. HOME-STAT adds three new elements to the City’s homeless prevention and response policy:

  • Proactive Canvassing
  • Immediate Response
  • Citywide Case-by-Case Integration and Management

Read more about HOME-STAT.

Individuals interested in contributing to the City's homeless outreach effort may volunteer for the 2016 HOPE Count on January 25, 2016. Thousands of volunteers are needed to assist the NYC Department of Homeless Services (DHS) in canvassing parks, subways, and other public spaces to estimate the number of people who find themselves living on the street. Last year, a record 3,500 New Yorkers participated in the count.
