Town Hall: Roosevelt Avenue Is Not For Sale


You heard from small business owners and residents at our town hall on February 1st, 2014 about why they oppose the Jackson Heights – Corona Business Improvement District! Check out our pictures below.

Thank you to all 120 community members and supporters who came out to our event. Our goal was to educate the community on what the Roosevelt New Deal was about including the Jackson Heights – Corona Business Improvement District and the Roosevelt Avenue Task Force. We heard from scholars, held a Q and A about gentrification with a Spanish Harlem resident and movie director and input your ideas on what alternatives YOU want to see in your hood!

What can you do to stop the BID?
