The 82nd Street Partnership continues to organize Roosevelt Avenue business owners, residents and property owners to improve quality of life by creating a cleaner and more inviting commercial corridor. Working with our maintenance contractor; our partners at the City’s Department of Small Business Services; and Council Member Julissa Ferreras’ team, in the past two months we have:
- Collected 11,785 bags of trash.
- Fixed, cleaned and scraped 2,848 street furniture items, including light posts, mail boxes and trash receptacles.
- Removed 54 large-scale graffiti tags from public and private property.
- Reported 22 cases of broken sidewalks and trip hazards to 311.
These changes are already benefiting our community and local businesses by making the neighborhood cleaner and safer. We look forward to expanding and improving these services as we build support for the future Jackson Heights – Corona Business Improvement District.
To report graffiti or an unsafe sidewalk condition, please contact Helen Bohorquez, Streetscape Manager, at Helen@82ndStreet.org or by phone at 718-335-9421.
