BID Expansion

BID Expansion 

UPDATE: 2022 marks the official launch of the Expanded Business District. On Monday, January 3rd, we welcomed over a dozen new Sanitation Crew members who began a major cleaning of newly incorparated expansion-based blocks along 20th Street, Sixth Avenue up to 31st, and more of NoMad. In preparation for 2022's full roll-out of district services, a BID assessment charge was included in the most recent Department of Finance property tax bill that was mailed to expansion area properties for the first time. Click here for Frequently Asked Questions regarding the assessment. You can also contact the team directly at or 212-741-2323. 

As the neighborhood grows and evolves, so does the need for further districtwide 
promotions, advocacy, and public realm services & enhancements.

In April 2020, the Flatiron BID Expansion Steering Committee submitted its BID expansion proposal and documented statements of support to the NYC Department of Small Business Services for its formal consideration and review. On November 30, 2020, the proposal entered the public review and legislative approval phase

The BID expansion received support from committees of Community Board 4 and 5 in December 2020 and on January 20, 2021, received a public hearing at the City Planning Commission. City Planning submitted its recommendation for the expansion of this Business Improvement District to the City Council. The City Council Finance Committee reviewed the proposal and held a public hearing on the expansion plan on Thursday, May 27, 2021. On July 29, 2021, the City Council Finance Committee approved the proposal which moved the legislation to a City Council Vote.  

On July 29, 2021, the City Council voted to approve the legislation that will expand the boundaries of the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership Business Improvement District as of January 1, 2022. 

View the completed proposal here.

The expansion will bring our robust services—sanitation, safety, homeless outreach, marketing, and public improvements—to a larger footprint that includes NoMad, the Sixth Avenue gateway to the district, and 20th Street.

The expansion will form a more a more cohesive, clean, safe, and vibrant district that nurtures and facilitates the dynamic Flatiron experience further throughout Midtown South.
