You may participate in or co-sponsor our events.

 Residents: We can support and promote volunteer events like park and block clean ups, gardening, and “walking the block” to learn about reporting and resolving issues.

Merchant and Business Services

The Sunset Park BID supports local businesses and merchants. We serve as a liaison with city agencies.  We are available to help answer questions about starting a new business, understanding City regulations, or connect with small business support resources. The BID is an active advocate in City government working on topics as diverse as street vending, land use policy, regulatory reform, and sanitation.

You can connect with us using this site’s contact form or / (718) 439-7767.  For business owners, residents, and property owners interested in supporting our efforts, you can contact us for more information about attending our general board meetings or joining our board of directors.

 Residents: Do you have a question about a local merchant or building? Do you want to set up a shop of your own, or report unacceptable conduct on the avenue? Contact the BID, we can help.

Sanitation & Disposal Services

Each year, our BID  collects tens of thousands of bags of trash, covers hundreds of graffiti locations, and removes thousands of illegal handbills and advertisements. Sanitation is our largest public service budget item.  We contract for tree pit maintenance and cultivation, and sidewalk steam cleaning. We’re here to help you with illegal dumping reports, and working with the Department of Sanitation. We can help you understand commercial storefront sanitation rules and regulations. 

 Residents, Merchants and Building Owners: if you see illegal dumping in progress call 911.  If you want to report unsanitary conditions use the 311 app and contact the BID for follow up.


Commercial Signs & Banners

The Sunset Park BID hangs lamppost banners from 38th to 64th Streets. Our banners celebrate the neighborhood and our commercial corridor. 

Contact the BID for information about light pole banner sponsorship opportunities.

All banners are hung under NYC Dept. of Transportation guidelines and permits.
