Fall Planting in the Ironbound District

 

Planters throughout the Ironbound District are being replanted with fall flowers to help keep our streetscape in bloom. An attractive streetscape, effective lighting and a commitment to a clean and welcoming community are top priorities year-round.

 

Keeping the Lamps Lit a Priority in Ironbound District

There are nearly 100 street lamps located throughout the Ironbound District in Newark. Keeping them lit, as well as keeping track of when they aren’t working, is a tough job. Staff members from the Ironbound Business Improvement District (IBID) have made this effort a top priority and have built effective partnerships with the City of Newark and PSE&G to get the job done.

“Streets that are clean and well-lighted are hallmarks of a well-managed community,” noted Seth A. Grossman, the IBID’s Executive Director. “Going the extra mile to make sure that our street lamps are working properly, and reporting outages when necessary, underscores our commitment to all of the Ironbound’s stakeholders, from business and property owners and residents to the thousands of people who visit the Ironbound District every week for great shopping, dining and entertainment.”

Ironbound Business Improvement District Joins Forces with the Newark Police Department to Promote Pedestrian Safety

The Ironbound Business Improvement District (IBID) has purchased six pedestrian crosswalk safety signs in cooperation with the Newark Police Department to emphasize pedestrian safety as we head into the busy summer months. The signs will be posted at Wilson Ave / Ann Street, New York Avenue / Lang Street, New York Avenue / Ann Street, Ferry Street / Alyea Street, Patterson Street/ Alyea Street and Elm Street / Jefferson Street, in addition to other signs posted throughout the Ironbound District and around the city.

“The State of New Jersey, the City of Newark and the Ironbound District have all been in the spotlight for the high number of crashes involving motor vehicles and pedestrians,” noted Seth A. Grossman, the IBID’s Executive Director. “These new signs serve as tangible reminders of the responsibilities of both motorists and pedestrians to help keep our streets safe, and this investment in support of the efforts of the Newark PD are just one more example of our commitment to the people who live, work and visit the Ironbound District,” he concluded.

Showcasing one of the new signs before their deployment are Left to right, Chris Bernardo, Commercial District Services (CDS), Lt. Brian O'Hara, Seth A. Grossman, IBID Ex. Director, Lt. Antonio Cruz and Detective Michael Silva.
