Clean, Safe, & Welcoming

Security Team. Maintaining safety within the District.
For over 16 years the BID has provided on-site supplemental security services to Flatbush Avenue businesses by Security Officers Lester and Luis. To report a concern or to arrange a time for Lester and Luis to stop by to meet you and your employees, please contact the BID at 718-282-2500, x79234.


Supplemental Sanitation. Maintaining an environment free of litter and graffiti.
The BID provides supplemental sidewalk and tree pit cleaning, removal of graffiti and posters from buildings and street furniture, and clearing of excess snow contracted through Atlantic Maintenance. Our dedicated and friendly sanitation workers, Ignacio, Tirso, and Basilico, have been on duty since the late 1990s. BID businesses and property owners are encouraged to report sanitation-related problems as they arise by contacting the BID at 718-282-2500, x79234.


Banners. Maintaining a welcoming environment. 
The BID hangs banners on street light poles along Flatbush Avenue from Parkside Avenue to Cortelyou Road, adding vibrancy and a seasonally themed look to the BID’s streetscape. For information on becoming a sponsor of the banner program, please contact Lauren Elvers Collins at 718-282-2500, 79234 or Flatbushavebid1@gmail.com.
