Sponsorship Opportunities with the 125th Street BID!
Sponsorship Opportunities Include:
In conjunction with the Harlem Arts Alliance, the 125th Street BID is holding a design competition asking artists to submit designs for a series of street banners to be displayed beginning in June - 2012 to commemorate Black Music Month. The banners will celebrate Harlem’s musical legacy, personalities and venues closely associated with Harlem’s contribution to the history and development of music in America.
Last year’s competition was a great success, generating over 40 artist submissions which were reviewed by a panel to determine those that best responded to the theme and which have the highest artistic quality. The winning designs brought a uniqueness and beauty that truly reflects the diversity, energy and creativity of 125th Street, the Heart of Harlem.
The banner designs for this year’s BID ON CULTURE will be unveiled in June 2012 at the BID’s Annual Meeting (Location TBD), after which the new banners will be installed along 125th Street.

Sample Springboard Data Chart
The 125th Street BID recently installed a pedestrian counter on the corner of 125th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard using a technology called Springboard. This enables us to see which days of the week, and even which hours of the day, are the busiest, so that you can structure certain aspects of your business around the data from the pedestrian counts. We are currently seeking a sponsor of the data reports that are generated. The audience of these reports are property owners, store owners, the BID's Board of Directors and subscribers to our monthly newsletter. A total of approximately 7,000 readers receive Springboard reports monthly. The sponsor's logo would be prominently displayed on all reports and mentions of the report throught the sponsorship period.
Cost of Sponorship: $3500 for a six month period and $6000 annually
