Maintaining open and accessible streets and shared spaces
The Junction is a destination of choice and offers experiences for every lifestyle, family-friendly budget days out and culturally diverse eating options.
Flatbush Junction, the gateway to South Brooklyn is a commercial, educational and transportation hub.
At the BID, we work with our partners to actively promote and communicate the cultural transformation that has turned the Junction into one of Brooklyn’s most dynamic and accessible districts. The Junction offers an exciting mix of iconic historic attractions, commercial and residential architecture, thrilling cultural offerings and a wide range of quick-service restaurants. In essence, it is a remarkable part of Brooklyn’s mystique.
Through our work with key partners, we have been dynamically promoting the Junction as a visitor, shopping, entertainment, cultural and business destination. We have made remarkable progress with innovative projects like the “Intersection at the Junction”, “Junctionspace”, “Upcycle Junction Market” and the annual culturally themed “Roots @ the Junction” festival; to mention but a few. These initiatives engaged over 50 organizations and attracted over 100,000 visitors.
More than 130 million people pass through the Junction’s public transport routes each year. We want to engage these commuters, workers and residents, building support for the changing face of the Junction and ensuring that local benefits are maximized. We will thus continue to build the profile of the Junction locally, nationally and internationally, marketing the area as an attractive place to school, shop, invest, live, visit and work. Our work will continue to support local businesses and inspire confidence for further business investment.
