The 34th Street Partnership (34SP) is a not-for-profit, private management company organized as a business improvement district (BID). 34SP is funded by assessments on property within its boundaries, fees from Herald and Greeley Squares’ concessions, and revenue generated by events in the squares. One of the most ambitious BIDs in the United States, 34SP receives no tax dollars, nor does it solicit funds from philanthropic donors. The public pays not one cent for the outstanding services and capital plant that the Partnership delivers.
In 1989, at the request of then-Mayor Ed Koch, formation of the 34th Street Partnership began, and in 1992 the Partnership was officially established as one of New York’s first Business Improvement Districts. 34SP was instrumental in 34th Street’s dramatic renaissance in the 1990s, and has consistently been credited as innovators in the realm of public space management.
As our efforts have grown, the 34th Street Partnership has continued to receive distinction for our work in the form of various awards and honors; in areas ranging from Design and Landscape Architecture to Neighborhood Development and Social Entrepreneurship.
We've also earned accolades in some of New York’s most prominent media outlets. Media coverage of 34th Street has included feature articles and highlights in The New York Times, The New York Post, The Wall Street Journal, Crain’s, The Commercial Observer, and many others. Additionally, regional coverage has been extensive on radio, television, and the Internet.
The success of 34th Street’s exciting amenities and programs is linked to 34th Street Partnership’s ability to partner with leading brands and corporations. With millions of annual visitors, outstanding demographics and an unsurpassed ability to use the neighborhood’s assets to leverage and express a partner’s message, we are ready to work with your company to bring your offering to our patrons. Past partners include Target, H&M, Samsung, Macy’s, Mini Cooper, Ben & Jerry’s, Cracker Jack, Sports Illustrated, MasterCard, and many more.
