Founded in 1990 and based in Jackson Heights, Queens, the 82nd Street Partnership is an award-winning neighborhood development organization governed by a board of directors comprised of property owners, commercial tenants, government officials and community leaders. A not-for-profit entity, the Partnership is responsible for managing and promoting the local business improvement district (BID), which covers four blocks and includes 44 properties, a triangle plaza, and nearly 200 businesses.


Our mission is to improve quality of life and support business growth by creating a cleaner, more welcoming and sustainable neighborhood for everyone. We achieve this through a range of local economic development programs, including neighborhood marketing, placemaking, streetscape beautification, supplemental sanitation, and advocacy.
