Protecting their OWN pockets while taxing us. The 86th street BID, that expensive failure that never stops taking your money wants us to believe that the “LINES around the block” are a good thing. In realty they are the people purchasing the discounted items from a CLOSING store that was the anchor for the area – once this store is gone – we dare say the rest of the 3 blocks of 86st will wither away – Modells is gone, now Century the largest stores – YET THE 86ST BID LIKE ALL BIDS STAFF HAVE AND ALWAYS WILL GOTTEN PAID – have you? ask condren that – has he gotten paid from the 86th failed bid? MNORE PROOF THAT WE DID THE RIGHT THING BY BEATING THE 3rd AVE BID TAX!
