The North Flatbush Business Improvement District today announced a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the completion of the District’s 6th Avenue Triangle Park, which will take place on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at 11:30am, in conjunction with the NFBID’s annual Fall Festival. Join the NFBID in celebrating ongoing efforts to improve pedestrian safety and streetscape conditions, and activate public space.
It is the BID’s mission to support its member businesses, residents and property owners, as well as the surrounding community, and to help North Flatbush feel more welcoming for everyone who walks the streets. This corridor along Flatbush Avenue from Atlantic Avenue towards Prospect Park represents a powerful lifeline of the borough of Brooklyn, and the intersection of a variety of neighborhoods, cultures, and communities, connecting the bustling Downtown to the peaceful Prospect Park and beyond with a slew of transportation links. The district’s Triangle Parks are a visual representation of this intersection, and will help further the North Flatbush BID’s mission of creating a vibrant and hospitable neighborhood for all, offering residents and visitors alike a welcoming space to catch up with a friend, or enjoy a meal on a beautiful day.
In celebrating this important community effort, NFBID aims to highlight the behind-the-scenes efforts of New York City BIDs to make New York City a more safe and inviting place. The ribbon-cutting will take place in tandem with the NFBID’s Annual Fall Festival, as an opportunity to expose the project and offer an example of how the space will be activated.
The North Flatbush Avenue Triangles Reconstruction Project includes reconstruction and improvement of sidewalks and planting of trees at the 6th Avenue, 7th Avenue, and Carleton Avenue triangles. This takes place as part of a larger 18 month infrastructure upgrades project, which also includes construction of curbs and sidewalks, installation of catch basins, manholes and chambers, and replacement of water mains. The completion of the 6th Avenue Triangle Park marks that the larger construction project is nearing completion.
