The Atlantic Maintenance Corporation has been providing maintenance services since May of 2007 to our business improvement district. The AMC makes every effort to recruit workers who reside near the work areas, which benefits the community the B.I.D. is located in and the employees’ travel distance and expense.
Atlantic Maintenance provides workers to sweep and clean the sidewalks and curb areas 18″ into the street, bagging the refuse, changing garbage liners from trash receptacles, removal of graffiti and posters from street furniture, and in the event of snow, the removal of snow from pedestrian crosswalks and catch basins.
The cleaning crew (prominent in their blue coveralls and the BID logo) perform these services six days a week, eight hours a day, except for holidays.
Another prominent feature on 5th Avenue is the security car patrolling the boundaries of the Bay Ridge 5th Avenue B.I.D. The service is provided by Bay Ridge Security Service, Inc. who covers additional areas in Brooklyn and Manhattan. The security staff, does not, by any means, replace the police. They conduct a motor patrol of the area, and observe and report any unusual or suspicious activities to the proper authorities. They will attempt to discourage or prevent any unlawful acts, and detain any suspected offenders for the NYPD.
