North Flatbush Bid
North Flatbush Bid282 Flatbush Avenue Ste 2 Brooklyn, NY 11217
A little over 35 years ago, a group of committed citizens joined forces to improve the area known as North Flatbush Avenue. This group was comprised of merchants, property owners and residents such as Fran Trowbridge, Regina Cahill, Sophie Edeler, Joe King (Century 21 Real Estate) Bill Shapiro (Triangle Sports) and the Pintchik family (Pintchik Hardware)
These committed citizens, along with the assistance of elected officials, city agencies and the Brooklyn Union Gas "Cinderella Project" brought renewal to Flatbush Avenue beginning with the Triangle Parks Commission, the North Flatbush Avenue Betterment Committee that ultimately gave rise to the North Flatbush Avenue Business Improvement District, also known as the "BID."
