GRAFFITI REMOVAL

The BID’s sanitation program was upgraded in January 2007 to include free graffiti removal services from properties and buildings within the BID boundaries. The BID conducts monthly graffiti surveys and coordinates removals with those affected property and business owners.

A graffiti removal request form must be filled out by any property and/or business owners requesting our graffiti removal services for each removal instance. If you wish to have graffiti removed from your property or business, please call the BID hotline at 718-562-1269 or fax a request form to 718-562-6225 and we will contact you to inform you of a removal date.
