Fifth Avenue Street Cleaning 

One of the primary jobs of the Park Slope Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District is to improve the cleanliness of the avenue, to make it more appealing for residents, merchants and shoppers, alike. To that end, the BID has contracted with Atlantic Maintenance to deploy 3 maintenance workers along Fifth Avenue, 5 days a week. The program has already been a tremendous success, making the avenue noticeably cleaner in just a few short months.

For more than 20 years, the merchants along Fifth Avenue have sponsored the Fabulous Fifth Avenue Fair. Like many New York City street fairs, this event is known for its great food and music. What really sets it apart from the other street fairs, though, is the heavy participation of local merchants along the avenue, who use it as an opportunity to introduce fair-goers to their goods. The Park Slope 5th Avenue Business Improvement District took over management of the fair in 2009 and will continue and expand this rich tradition in the years to come.
Special Events

The Park Slope Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District strives to make the shopping and dining experience along Fifth Avenue special, to help promote the shopping and dining experiences that the avenue has to offer. Events like our recent Raffle & Spending Spree (pictured left) and Music In The Streets, are just a taste of the type of promotions that the BID will be running in the months and years to come. To keep up to date on our event schedule, check out our Events Page or read our blog, All About Fifth. Also, don't forget to follow us on Twitter at @allaboutfifth.
