125th Street BID continues its “Harlem Canvas For Change” project. Last week Mac Stores and Banana Republic offered their boarded up storefronts for visitors to 125th Street to express their thoughts and ideas for change.
The thoughts, feelings and ideas from the people are being photographed and will be housed on a website that is currently being developed.
Working with Columbia School of International Public Administration, these thoughts, feelings and ideas from the people will be used to develop policies for change.
Athena Moore, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer’s Director of the Manhattan Office and member of the 125th Street BID Board of Directors, dropped by to express her call for

Now that stores are slated to re-open on June 22, the panels will be taken down and stored. Out next step is to find permanent locations for them to be seen. Ideas can be sent to email@example.com
