From the SoHo NO BID Committee

Selling SoHo to the Highest BID-der


The SoHo BID wants to SELL & RENT our Public Space,

bringing more crowding to our already 

congested sidewalks (scroll down for photos


Up where the Union Square BID is in charge,

the latest rage is Portable RETAIL On-the-Go:

POP-UP SHOPS in the Streets …

The latest in Retail, made possible by the Union Square BID.


A retail space, owned by a backer of the BS BID, recently took over SoHo sidewalks,

and even put up velvet ropes to keep away those they deemed unworthy

The retail space is owned by BID Steering Committee member Aurora Capital / Jared Epstein


Another retailer brought a Monster Bus POP-UP Shop to SoHo,

and set up shop on the public sidewalk along Broadway …


And all over town, BIDs bring in rolling Kiosks for tourists 

Imagine a few of these on the crowded sidewalks of SoHo

Lincoln Center BID Kiosk taking up public space.

Kiosk brought to you by the Lincoln Center BID.


SEND A MESSAGE to Councilmember Margaret Chin:

Public Space in SoHo should NOT be SOLD to the biggest BID-der

SAY NO to the SoHo BID!!
