On Sunday, I discovered that Fulton Street is back to accommodating two-way traffic (after having to take an A/C shuttle bus). FINALLY. The Times offered an interesting article on the state of the street's BID last week as well. Many seem to think it's not needed, but you can't deny the success it's had on Myrtle Avenue. Yet, a BID requires local businesses to pay into a community fund to help pay for street improvements. After a few years of street construction and hard times, people aren't feeling so hip to spending more.
(I hope this post is coherent! I'm on vacation in Dubai and it's only 2:30 am EST.)
