21 Dec Greenfield Launches Expanded Street Cleanup in Flatbush & Boro Park
Brooklyn–Councilman David G. Greenfield is thrilled to announce the launch of an expanded cleanup initiative. Greenfield has partnered with The Association of Community Employment Programs for the Homeless (ACE) to sweep the district’s sidewalks and empty its trash-bins.
ACE works with homeless men and women throughout New York City, providing job training, work experience and a lifetime support network to help program participants achieve their goals and establish economic independence. Thanks to funding secured by Greenfield, the following streets are slated for cleaning: 16th Avenue between 44th Street and 54th Street, Avenue J between East 10th Street and East 18th Street, Coney Island Avenue from Avenue I to Avenue K, Avenue M between McDonald Avenue and Ocean Parkway, and Kings Highway between McDonald and Ocean Parkway.
“One of the top complaints that I get is about dirty streets. Our district is one of the most beautiful in the city – our streets should be too. Thanks to this new program, our major avenues will now be much cleaner,” said Councilman Greenfield.
New Yorkers from all five boroughs benefit from this initiative that was started by Councilman Greenfield. Each member is allocated funding to distribute to the organization of their choice to provide cleaning services. Cleaning services include, but are not limited to, street sweeping, litter pick up, and graffiti removal.
Greenfield has previously financed programs to improve conditions and cleanliness along the major commercial corridors throughout his district. Last year Greenfield targeted the commercial strips of 13th, 16th, and 18th Avenues in Boro Park. New York State Senator Simcha Felder now generously sponsors cleaning services on 13th, 16th, and 18th Avenues in Boro Park through Project Sweep. Between Greenfield and Felder’s efforts, every major thoroughfare in Boro Park and Flatbush now has sidewalk cleaning services.
