In early October, the Initiative started receiving concerned emails and phone calls about whether the Initiative was going to continue cleaning Broadway. Rest assured that the SoHo Broadway Clean Team continues working 7 days a week from 7am to 10pm to keep Broadway clean and looking its best.
As many of you may have heard, ACE Programs for the Homeless is moving its offices to Long Island City in 2017 and recently ended its adopt a block program in lower Manhattan. These changes will have no impact on the Initiative’s cleaning services provided by the SoHo Broadway Clean Team through the Initiative’s contract with ACE.
The Initiative has adopted all DSNY litter baskets in our district previously served by ACE to make sure those litter baskets are taken care of.
The Initiative will miss having ACE as a close SoHo Broadway neighbor, but thanks ACE for their continued service to the homeless men and women throughout the City of New York and looks forward to continuing working together in 2017.
