From merchant assistance and marketing to ensuring clean and safe streets for all

Merchant Assistance and Advocacy


FAB FULTON works on many levels to provide assistance to the small businesses that make up the district. That assistance can take the form of direct help on issues involving city regulations or agencies; connecting merchants with emergency assistance; creating cross–promotional opportunities; helping with neighborhood issues; and working with elected officials and city agencies on their behalf. There are also a wide range of services available from other non-profits and government sources for small business and FAB brings those to the merchants by providing information on free seminars and workshops to help them and their business; referrals for pro-bono legal assistance; information and advocacy for direct loan and grant programs; tips on programs that help them save money on their electric bills – and more.

Clean Streets

Clean Streets

Since 2009 FAB FULTON has provided sanitation services via a contracted third-party vendor, to empty overflowing garbage cans, sweep litter off sidewalks and keep the district tidy. During winter, our crew removes snow and ice at pedestrian crossings and plaza pathways. They open and close the public plazas in our BID. The maintenance team works 6-7 days a week depending on the season and are easily identifiable by their FAB uniforms! The FAB FULTON district was one of the first to secure recycling containers when the NYC City Council expanded the recycling program; there are several high-traffic locations along the corridor where containers are installed to serve the community. FAB FULTON also works with our contracted vendor to remove graffiti from buildings and security gates throughout the BID. Our sanitation crew removes smaller graffiti marks from lamp posts, mail boxes, and other street furniture. On average, more than 100 instances of graffiti are removed each month.

District Marketing

Building awareness of all that Fulton Street has to offer, driving foot traffic to local merchants and generating interest of entrepreneurs in the vacant spaces are key functions of FAB FULTON. Fulton Street is lined with bright, colorful banners that hang from nearly 50 light posts from Clinton Hill to Fort Greene; they enhance the vibrant retail strip and highlight all there is to see and do throughout the district. FAB FULTON also produces and prints event guides and other collateral materials that are distributed widely throughout the community.
Community Safety

Community Safety

FAB FULTON regularly coordinates with the New York Police Department, the Brooklyn District Attorney, Community Board 2 and other city agencies to improve public safety in the district. In the past, FAB FULTON led a coalition of groups working to mitigate quality-of-life issues at key locations, and even worked with a former NYC Councilmember and the NYPD 88th Precinct to install security cameras. FAB FULTON continues to work with the NYC DOT to improve pedestrian safety at several intersections by reducing the distance of cross-walks and implementing other traffic-calming measures. Merchants in the district are connected with information and updated on safety issues and trends by FAB FULTON through newsletters, merchant events, and door-to-door visits with our Neighborhood Coordinatiohn Officers (NCOs).
