A History of Success
In 1999, our business attraction began efforts by using very fundamental tactics such as cold calling and letter writing to attract newer businesses to the Myrtle Avenue retail corridor. In 2002, only 3 years after the organization’s inception, positive movement was noticeable in the district’s commercial vacancy rate, even resulting in the City’s recognition of the organization’s business attraction efforts through a Neighborhood Achievement Award for its “Rolling Up the Gates” program, a full day where property owners and/or brokers show vacant commercial spaces to potential tenants. Since beginning our work on Myrtle Avenue, we’ve seen the commercial vacancy rate drop from over 20% down to 5%.
Business attraction activities are funded by the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn BID and the NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS).
