Last Wednesday, June 19th, City Council Speaker & Mayoral Candidate Christine Quinn visited the 82nd Street commercial corridor south of Roosevelt Avenue. During the tour she stopped by some of our local businesses – Salma’s Jewelry, Sonrisas Sanas, Crown Pharmacy, Tulcingo Bakery – and personally spoke to merchants about how their businesses are doing and what the City could be doing better to help them succeed. Each of the visited businesses highlighted the important role the 82nd Street Partnership plays in fostering a healthy business environment. They also mentioned the need for City Agencies to provide education on rules and regulations in order to avoid fines. After the tour, Speaker Quinn was joined by Council Member Julissa Ferreras and entrepreneurs from the neighborhood at Terraza 7 for small group discussion.
