Fordham Fever Friday 2014

Fordham BID held the last Fordham Fever Friday at Muller Park. The theme was International Day Fair, including continental cuisines and artifact displays; children were able to play in a bouncy house and fun bus. Participants received exclusive deals and discounts just by showing up! Shoppers were also able to receive free giveaways that ranged from books, tote bags, and so much more!

This year, we will be having even more surprises with great music by the Rhythm Cartel and lots of amazing food! Join us as we celebrate health and wellness with a full day of fun and exciting events for the whole family.

Sparkling the Heart of Fordham a Huge Success Despite Rain

Not even the rain could dampen the spirits of nearly 1,500 Bronx residents who came out for the 9th Annual Sparkling the Heart of Fordham on December 6th, 2013. Despite the weather, families lined up to meet Santa Claus, see the tree lighting, hear the Gloria Dei choir, and take their chance at winning a raffle prize. In spite of the chilly rain, the holiday spirit was contagious.

Sparkling the Heart of Fordham also kicked off the annual Fordham Road discount shopping program. Shoppers took advantage of discounts at nearly 70 unique Fordham Road businesses to complete their holiday shopping, from national chains to local retailers. What a fantastic way to celebrate the holidays in the Bronx's busiest shopping district!

The Fordham Road BID was one of the recipients of the first ever BID Challenge Awards, given out November 27th, 2012 at the Roosevelt House in Manhattan.The Fordham Road BID was one of seven recipients of this year’s BID Challenge Awards, a competitive grant from the New York Department of Small Business Services that provides funding for the most innovative neighborhood improvement proposals in Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) across New York City. The BID Challenge was designed to encourage the City’s 67 BIDs to strengthen their neighborhoods, attract jobs and bring investment through creative and innovative initiatives.

A marketing campaign to promote the event will include banners along Fordham Road, extensive beautification in the area and a sanitation crew to keep the plaza clean before, during and after the events.

                                                      SILVER DREAMS ON FORDHAM ROAD

The Fordham Road Business Improvement District (BID) is proud to announce the unveiling of “Silver”, a ten foot tall sculpture of found and recycled material. Created by Christian Marche, a Bronx based artist, “Silver” was constructed from refuse collected from New York City streets and transformed into a sculpture. “Silver” was installed in July 2011 on the South-side overpass at the intersection of East Fordham Road and Grand Concourse.

This work of art was made possible through a partnership with the NYC Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Urban Art Program along with Barbara Bullard from the Al Johnson Art Studio. Additional funding for “Silver” was made possible with public funds from the Bronx Council on the Arts through the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs Greater New York Arts Development Fund Regrants Program.
