MetroTech BID

Founded in 1992 as a non-profit business improvement district and expanded in 2016 to include the areas of the Brooklyn Cultural District and Atlantic Terminal and Mall, the MetroTech Business Improvement District (MTBID) works to ensure that Downtown Brooklyn is an active and inviting place to live, work, and visit. Bounded by Tillary Street to the north and Atlantic Avenue to the south, the Metrotech BID covers a wide swath of Downtown Brooklyn and serves as a commercial and academic hub, home to major corporations like JP Morgan Chase, National Grid, and Statasys; media and advertising companies like Slate Media Group, Northside Media, and UniWorld Group; academic institutions like NYU Tandon School of Engineering and LIU Brooklyn; and cultural groups such as BAM, Theatre for a New Audience, BRIC, UrbanGlass, and Mark Morris Dance Group. At the heart of MetroTech is the Commons, a 3.5-acre open space that hosts events including concerts, health fairs, film screenings, and holiday celebrations.

Programs and Services:
MTBID initiatives include a robust public safety program, sanitation services, and marketing and promotional services throughout a 35-square block district to businesses, universities, residences, and government agencies.
