Volunteers Needed for Broadway Vacancy Survey

Join the Office of the Manhattan Borough President on Sunday, May 21 to conduct a census of vacant storefronts along the 13-mile length of Broadway in Manhattan. Each surveyor will sign up for a set of blocks and record the addresses of vacant storefronts, former occupants, and suggestions for desired businesses in the neighborhood. To register, please email your name and phone number to info@manhattanbp.nyc.gov with the subject line “Storefront Survey”.

In the Flatiron District, Broadway is an anchor of economic development, and this survey will help create a Manhattan-wide resource for prospective commercial tenants. The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership actively conducts its own research on economic trends in the Flatiron District, and publishes a monthly map of available retail spaces, available here.

Volunteer for HOPE 2017

Concerned about homelessness across the city but unsure how to help? The HOPE Count is a great opportunity to get involved and make a difference. The annual Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE) is an effort undertaken by the NYC Department of Homeless Services (DHS) to count each homeless person living in public spaces across the five boroughs during the coldest time of the year.

The 2017 HOPE Count will begin at 10:00 p.m. on Monday, January 23. DHS needs thousands of volunteers to make the night a success. HOPE Count volunteers will help canvas parks, subways, and other public spaces to estimate the number of people who find themselves living on the streets.

The HOPE Count is an integral part of the city’s approach to addressing street homelessness as the data gathered during the event allows DHS to gain a better understanding of how to make the greatest possible impact on helping the chronically homeless improve their lives.

For more information and to register for the 2017 HOPE Count, click here.

Local Transportation Update

Flatiron's local transportation options are seeing some changes this month.

Select Bus Service

On Sunday, November 6th, Select Bus Service (SBS) began on the M23 bus route. This bus corridor serves nearly 13,000 weekday riders, connects residential and commercial neighborhoods, as well as provides connections to subway stations along 23rd Street.

The new improvement brings faster and more reliable service to the M23 through dedicated bus lanes, off-board fare payment, and real time bus arrival information. To board the M23 SBS, you need to pay your fare at a fare machine before boarding. Two machines accept MetroCards, and one machine accepts coins. After paying, you receive a ticket as proof of purchase, which you must keep for the duration of your trip, but you do not need to show your ticket to the bus driver.  After paying, you can board the bus through any door.

For more information about the M23 SBS and stops, click here.

To view bus time for the M23 SBS, click here

New Subway Service

On Monday, November 7th, the W subway line returned to Broadway, making local stops in Manhattan on weekdays, including 23rd Street and 28th Street. The N train runs express on weekdays, skipping 23rd Street and 28th Street, but runs local during late nights and on weekends. The R train continues to operate from 6:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily, stopping at local stops, including 23rd Street and 28th Street.

For more information about the subway service change, click here.

Forgiving Fines: The NYC Amnesty Program

Mayor de Blasio and the City Council authorized a three-month program that allows participants to resolve violations they received from New York City’s Department of Sanitation, Buildings, Transportation, Fire Department, Landmarks, Parks, or other New York City agencies, and which are now in judgement. The program, run by the New York Department of Finance, began on September 12th, 2016, and will continue through December 12th, 2016. 

Any business or individual who is named on a violation judgment that has been adjudicated by the Environmental Control Board may participate. The program covers two types of violations: those that only require payment and those that require both payment and corrective action.

To receive amnesty, you must pay all of your violations that are in judgement on or before December 12th, 2016. This means the City of New York has taken the legal step of filing a public record of your liability in court for the entire amount due, plus additional interest. The program does not include Parking and Real Property violations.

You can help the City get the word out by distributing the Forgiveness Fines flyers and use #nycforgivingfines on social media.

For more information, visit nyc.gov/forgivingfines.
