Coming Sept. 28 along North Flatbush Ave.: merchants will be wearing Nets t-shirts, balloons in team colors outside shops
Saturday, September 28th, will be a big day in our neighborhood. The grand opening of the Barclays Center Arena.! That is why I am working with Forest City Ratner to provide Brooklyn Nets t-shirts to all of the merchants along North Flatbush Avenue to wear on opening day! Black and white balloons will be distributed to our merchants to tie up outside their shop! We expect news and media coverage in our area and the BID will also be taking out a full page ad in the Brooklyn Paper Barclays Center commerative issue to promote some of our participating restaurants! I am also working with Brooklyn Paper to promote some of our retail and service businesses in a full page spread in a special DIRECTORY, with a 35K run, which will be provided to all Brooklyn Hotels and hotels in lower Manhattan.
