Join the Shine On, Harlem Challenge!

125th Street Business Improvement District invites you to use Vibemap to explore businesses along 125th Street that are keeping Harlem clean and making 125th Street shine!

Wondering how it works?

The BID’s clean awareness campaign, #HarlemNeatStreets, raises awareness about the importance of a clean environment in Harlem, particularly along the 125th Street corridor. Use Vibemap to highlight businesses that exemplify the #HarlemNeatStreets campaign message by maintaining clean and inviting premises.  Add vibes and tips, save and share places with friends, and check-in at your visited spots.  The more you use Vibemap, the more “Challenge Points” you earn, increasing your chances of winning fantastic prizes!

BID Twinning

A first of its kind twinning between Harlem USA and Brixton England joins two important Business Improvement Districts and forges a bond between two radical communities.

Both BIDs are located in communities with a long and rich history of being the epicenters for a convergence of diversity representing various parts of the diaspora, living and working within the BID’s borders.
