Meet Suheyla Kipcakli of the SoHo Broadway Initiative

SoHo Broadway Initiative: New Community Engagement and Planning Intern joins our team

Suheyla Kipcakli joined the SoHo Broadway Initiative as Community Engagement & Planning Intern in June 2024. Born and raised in Flowery Branch, GA, she is currently pursuing her Master of Science in Urban Planning at Columbia University.

5 Questions with Suheyla:

SBI: When did you start working with the SoHo Broadway Initiative?

SK: I just started interning at the SoHo Broadway Initiative in June 2024. As an M.S. Urban Planning student at Columbia, I completed a studio on neighborhood improvement in Coney Island that introduced me to the BID world, so coming here felt like a perfect fit.

SBI: Outside of work, what are your interests and activities?

SK: I like art, dancing (especially belly dance), reading (usually romance), listening to podcasts and surf punk, and trying to convince myself to play the Switch games I spent money on.

SBI: What is the best part of the next thing you’re doing?

SK:  SoHo is such a cool part of New York, so I’m excited to be spending time here and learning the ins and outs of our district. It’s exciting to explore opportunities to improve a neighborhood that’s already really cool.

SBI: What is your favorite hang-out spot in the SoHo/Downtown area?

SK: I’ve yet to pick a favorite, but so far, I’ve had fun exploring all the thrift shops and cafes that SoHo has to offer.

SBI: What is your preferred mode of transportation in NYC?

SK: I am a subway enjoyer, but given that my neighborhood is nowhere near one, I would be lost without the Long Island Rail Road.
